'From another world': Ian Wright completely blown away by what £150k-a-week Chelsea player did recently

Ian Wright has been left completely blown away by Kai Havertz’s latest Chelsea goal in the recent win against Newcastle United at the weekend.

The Blues forward scored a last-minute winner on Sunday in a 1-0 Premier League victory at home to Newcastle.

It was an outrageous first touch from Havertz, who stopped the ball dead in the penalty box from a lofted Jorginho pass, before stroking past the goalkeeper in the 89th minute.

The left-footed attacker now has 11 goals across all competitions this season and is getting a consistent run of starts in the line-up.

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is even preferring him over Romelu Lukaku in the starting XI right now.

Pundit and ex-Premier League goalscorer Wright described Havertz’s latest contribution as “from another world”.

“As that ball goes into Kai Havertz and he touches and finishes, the goalkeeper doesn’t move at all from the time the ball goes from Jorginho to the back of the net. He doesn’t move because the touch and finish, it’s worldly, it’s from another world,” Wright said.

Lille must fear Chelsea in-form dangerman

Yes, the football continues for the Blues despite all the off-field drama involving the search for new ownership.

Tuchel’s side play out in France tonight in the Champions League against Lille, with Chelsea boasting a 2-0 aggregate lead from the first leg.

Havertz, who scored the opener in the first meeting with Lille, is someone the Ligue 1 side are going to be wary of.

The £150,000-a-week forward is so illusive with his movement around the penalty box, so is becoming such a nightmare for opponents to deal with. It’s great to see him finding the back of the net more regularly, too.

Aged 22, there is so much potential and excitement around him.
