Chelsea’s Kai Havertz reacts to a MOTM performance against Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday evening. The versatile German star says the Blues’ aim to secure a top 4 finish and scoring early in the game gave him the confidence to do well throughout the encounter.
Havertz also adds that it’s easy to create chances and score when you have players like Mount and Werner on your team.
The German told BBC after the Fulham win: “I think it was very important [the win]. We have to come in the top four of the Premier League, that is our goal for the season and this win today is crucial for us.
“Then, on Wednesday we have another important game so we’re happy with the win.
“I scored very early so it gave me a little bit of confidence, it is always good to score and I’m happy to help the team. I hope I can continue like this on Wednesday.”
Havertz then spoke of the assists from Mason Mount and Timo Werner: “We have a lot of quality players in our team and for us, it is easy to create chances. When you have midfielders like this behind you it is always easy.”
Mason Mount and Timo Werner assisted Havertz superbly for his both goals as he was sent through on goal with just the keeper to beat – which he did perfectly.
Next for the Blues is Real Madrid, who they host on Wednesday in the Champions League semi-final second leg.
