Kai Havertz was in fine form as Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 4-1 at the Selhurst Park on Saturday evening.

The 21-year-old scored the opening goal for Chelsea early in the game and had a blistering first half, with the home side finding it difficult to cope with his quality.

Interestingly, the 4-1 victory flattered Palace, as Chelsea missed so many glaring opportunities, with Kai Havertz missing at least two golden chances.

Speaking after the game, Havertz hailed the quality in the Chelsea team, but admitted that the side must learn to finish off their chances.

“Of course I’m happy but the most important thing is that we won,” Havertz told Sky Sports.

“It was a good game from us, we could’ve scored more goals but we are really happy.

“In my position you always want to score. It wasn’t easy, we created many chances and we maybe should’ve scored more but we are happy. I think I have the freedom to go where I want to go and I hope I can continue like that.

“In the second half, I had one or two good chances to score but of course, I’m happy.

“It’s always easy to play with players that have this quality but after winning 4-1, it’s easy to say you are a good attacking team – but we have to go again and after the season we can speak about it.

“I think I have to prove it in more games but I will give my best and try to improve and I will continue like that.”

Havertz had one of his best performances in a Chelsea shirt against Palace, and was one of the best players on the pitch. With a goal and assist to his name, he was just too hot for the Palace defence to handle.
