Timo Werner and Kai Havertz arrived in summer after Chelsea spent £53m and £70m for the German internationals. Werner has had a good start to his career at Chelsea, while Havertz has had mixed performances. Havertz, who scored his first professional hat-trick in the EFL cup has not been impactful in the Premier League games, as Lampard has used him in various positions trying to get the best out of him.
Werner however has backed his compatriot to get better and give his best to Chelsea in the near future. The German international said “I know Kai very well and I think he is one of the most talented players in the whole world,” said Werner. He is a young boy, only 21 and he can learn a lot but can already play like a very, very old and wise player. I think up and until now he feels very well here. A bit like me, we have talked a lot about settling in and he feels he is very happy to be here. In a lot of games he has shown what he can do, what he can bring to the team. For Kai it is very important to score, but I think what you can see in his game he is a lot more than scoring goals as a midfield player.
He will get better and better, like me he has come to a new country, language and style of football and has to learn. But until now he plays very good and we will see a lot more good games from him.
Chelsea, who are top of their Champions League group host Rennes and Werner believes they have a good squad with talented players to go the distance in the competition and potentially win silverwares this season. The German international stated “At the beginning always when you come to a new country, a new league, to come to a different style of football it’s always something different. Now I think I’m here in the league – I know how to play, I know what ways are better for my game, better for my team, better for my teammates.
I feel really comfortable now and I hope it will go on like this. I think every team that plays in the Champions League or the Europa League play on Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, and it’s difficult. But I think we have a big squad, a really big squad of good players. We have so many players, and so many good players. We have to have the goal to come very far in this competition.”
