Kai Havertz expects to get more assists from 'unbelievable' Chelsea teammate next season
Kai Havertz said he is looking forward to an even stronger partnership with “unbelievable” Chelsea teammate Mason Mount ahead of the new season.
A year ago, people were speculating about how Havertz’s arrival might have had a negative impact on Mount’s role in the Chelsea team.
Now, they are Chelsea’s Champions League final heroes.
Not only that Mount kept his spot and was named Chelsea’s player of the season, but he has also formed a strong partnership with Havertz.
Havertz believes his partnership with Mount can even grow stronger going forward.
“He’s an unbelievable player,” the Germany international told The Athletic about Mount.
“He has so much talent.
“Our understanding is so good, and I think it can be better this season than last season because we know each other better.
“I love to play with him because he’s a very good player, and he makes some good assists for me.”
To be fair, in certain formations, these two could have competed against each other for a starting role.
Fortunately, both Mount and Havertz are impressively versatile and as a result, can be used in different formations and positions.
Under Tuchel, Mount mostly plays as an inside forward, while Havertz has recently become the first-choice No.9 ahead of natural strikers such as Tammy Abraham.
This could change very soon, given the reports about Romelu Lukaku’s potential arrival.
While we still have to wait to see how Tuchel might line up the team with a new striker, it is possible that Havertz and Mount would once again have a healthy competition between them.
On the other hand, a possible attacking force of Lukaku, with Mount and Havertz as two No.10s behind him, certainly sounds exciting for the Blues fans.
