Harry Redknapp gives his verdict on Havertz and Werner's poor Chelsea form

Harry Redknapp says Chelsea summer signing Kai Havertz is struggling with the physicality of the Premier League.

The 17-game unbeaten run may have brushed aside some of Havertz and Timo Werner’s poor displays, but they have struggled to make an impact for a while now.

The wins made those below par performances somewhat forgivable.

Unsurprisingly, after back-to-back Premier League defeats to Everton and Wolves, the German pair has drawn some criticism, including from Redknapp.

“I’m still waiting to see the best of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz,” he told the Sun.

“Havertz doesn’t seem to have got to grips with the physicality of English football yet.

“Having coronavirus is  obviously a big setback and one we wish him well from.

“But even before that, he looked like a player not quite sure of himself.”

The former Tottenham Hotspur manager also thinks Lampard needs to find the best position for Werner.

“Should Werner come in from the wing and play through the middle with Mason Mount putting little balls through for him? It’s an option,” he added.

“I really hope they do fit in, but it’s up to Frank to sort it.”
