Despite seeming out-of-shape throughout the Blues’ preseason games, Kai Havertz appears to be completely prepared to assume charge and guide the front line for the team next season.
Prior to the new season ahead, Havertz made the decision to put pressure on himself by posting a message with a picture of himself on his social media page.
“Ready for the year ahead,” he said.

Havertz is expected to be the only forward capable of playing as a target man for the Thomas Tuchel side after Romelu Lukaku left on loan to Inter.
Under the new ownership, Chelsea paid £47.5 million to acquire Raheem Sterling, but they declined the opportunity to add Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski to their attacking options.
When playing up front for the Blues, Havertz will probably partner with the former Man City star – Raheem Sterling. He seriously need to continue to prove his worth and also improve his game play.

When Lukaku was sidelined, Havertz led the Chelsea line for the remainder of the previous season. The German is obviously enjoying his new role now despite being taken aback by his position change.
Playing up front and contributing to the club success is one thing, but Havertz genuinely wants to succeed.
However, his 13 goals from the previous season might not be sufficient for Chelsea to accomplish their goals this time around.
The 23-year-old, though, is already eager to team up with Sterling, a player he has always admired, and is looking forward to their season-opening match on Saturday against Everton.
