Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has issued a challenge to Kai Havertz, with the 22 year old scoring just once for the Blues this season.

“The goal [in the Champions League final] of course helped and he came back and showed that in training,” Tuchel said of the Germany international.

“He showed a different attitude, a mature way of training, a mature way of using his body.

“I’m not shy of saying that we expected to see more of this in the games.

“At the same time it is important that I feel the whole team is stuck a little bit in expectations. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because of our success. Maybe it’s the expectations that come with success.

“It’s very important and necessary that we brush it off our shoulders and that we focus and live right here, right now.

“We want more from Kai, more from what he can deliver, because he is full of talent.

“Nobody is angry with him. But once you play for Chelsea we want to have the best out of you.”
