It was busy summer for Chelsea thus with no less than seven first-team signings.
Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz, and Edouard Mendy are all available to head coach Frank Lampard for the 2020/21 season, while Malang Sarr is one for the future.
All but one have featured already this season, with Ziyech’s debut being delayed because of a knee injury sustained in a pre-season friendly clash against Brighton and Hove Albion in August.
Of the new signings, Havertz- the club’s record signing – has caught the eye with three goals and assist across all competitions thus far.
And he showed Lampard that there’s still a lot more to come from him with a brilliant performance for Germany in their international friendly against Turkey on Wednesday night.
Starting as one of the two supporting roles behind Lucas Waldschmidt, the 21-year-old showed how creative he can be.
As spotted by many supporters, his numbers against Turkey made for good viewing as he recorded two assists, and was generally at the heart of Germany’s attacks.
This performance has prompted a massive response on social media, with many sending a message to Lampard about how to unleash Havertz in the Premier League and Champions League. best football news
