Kai Havertz reveals favourite position at Chelsea

Kai Havertz has revealed his favourite position at Chelsea but insists he is happy to play anywhere as long as he is selected by head coach Frank Lampard. 

Havertz signed for Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen and was handed his debut on Monday as the Blues beat Brighton 3-1. After the clash, the 21-year-old admitted he was left exhausted following his first tasted of the Premier League action. 

The Germany international played on the right flank against Brighton with Mason Mount occupying a more central role while Timo Werner and Ruben Loftus-Cheek stationed in a more advanced position. 

On preferred role

"I played I think every offensive position at Leverkusen. I played as a right-winger, as a No.10, as a No.6, No.8, and sometimes as a striker as well," he said. 

"But for more it’s very important to have that flexibility on the pitch and to be creative, that’s something I like. I think I can play in many positions. Of course, for me, my best position is as a No.10, but of course, I can play on the right side or as a striker as well. To be honest I’m happy to stay on the pitch. I think I’m flexible."
