Kai Havertz Finally Breaks His Silence On Reece James Red Card Against Liverpool

Kai Havertz scored an incredible header at the near post to give Chelsea the lead but it was canceled out by a penalty decision that saw Reece James also sent off.

The German spoke to chelseafc.com about both situations, saying: “It was a good header and I was happy to score.

“It’s something we have worked on and we knew that there may be some space at the front post for me to attack. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck to get away from your man and things just fell into place nicely and I was pleased to score and help my team.”

“With the red card it’s hard to say because I didn’t see the replay but for me, I think it is a penalty but it shouldn’t be a red card.

“When you get the penalty, a goal, and a red card with another 45 minutes to play, it’s very difficult and for me, I don’t think it should have been a red card for Reece because it hit his knee first.

“It all happens so quickly, so it’s very difficult to make a decision but this is what happened and we showed what we are all about to fight until the end and come away with a draw even with one player less.”

Kai Havertz was taken off at half-time to provide more defensive stability and will be hoping circumstances will allow him to make more of a mark going forward.
