Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed a positive injury update on Kai Havertz ahead of tomorrow’s game against Manchester United – and some Blues fans on Twitter are excited with the news.
Tuchel revealed in his Friday press conference that Havertz is fit to play on Sunday when Chelsea host Man United at Stamford Bridge.
The 22-year-old attacker was absent for the midweek win over Juventus in the Champions League group stages, with a minor hamstring problem keeping him out.
However, the left-footed German is once again an option to be involved.
The forward has enjoyed a strong run lately in the starting line-up, but the competition within the squad is now cranking up as attacking teammates return to fitness.
Chelsea fans celebrate Havertz news
A selection of Blues supporters on social media are delighted about Havertz returning to the group.
Unfortunately, Chelsea’s left wing-back Ben Chilwell will miss at least six weeks due to the injury sustained this week. Also, midfielder Mateo Kovacic is currently sidelined through his own injury.
Tuchel is lucky to be working with a very strong squad, though.
Havertz has been playing down the middle in the past couple of months spearheading the attack, but forwards Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are now back involved to compete alongside him.
He’s not been a regular goalscorer at the Bridge like some of his teammates, netting four times in 17 appearances this campaign. However, he brings a lot on the pitch with his movement and hold up play.
Here are some Chelsea fans discussing Havertz:
