Kai Havertz spent the most part of last season playing as a false nine as the Chelsea strikers kept misfiring in front of goal.
For much of last season, it was difficult for Chelsea coaches Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel to find the best position for Havertz. But it was Tuchel who finally found where to play him, as the false nine role worked towards the end of last season.
Havertz form has dropped this season as he plays a deeper role just behind Romelu Lukaku, but the Chelsea star has admitted that he prefers his current position behind the striker.
“Sometimes I play as a number 10, sometimes as a number nine,” he told Chelsea FC.
“I like the position I’m playing in this system very much and I’m enjoying it.
“It’s my favourite position, somewhere up front, and it’s very nice also to play these positions with these good players here.”
