Kante backs Kai Havertz to succeed at Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Kante has backed Kai Havertz to fulfil his potential at Chelsea after arriving on a 72£m transfer in the summer. The former Bayer Leverkusen player has struggled to make an impact for the Blues since his hat-trick against Barnsley in September.

Despite the midfielder’s poor start to Chelsea career, Kante believes Havertz will come good for Chelsea. Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Kante said “He has a good talent. ‘Good with the ball, calm and he has the ability to make a good last decision in the opponent’s half or box.”

He’s a reliable player for us because we can feed him and use his speed and his technique. Obviously he’s young and he was a bit injured recently but he always stays positive and keeps a good work ethic.”

It’s good to have him in the squad and I’m sure that he will do well in the future.”

On Liverpool’s form

Chelsea visit Anfield on Thursday to take on Jurgen Klopp’s men, who have failed to win a game at home in all competitions since the turn of the year. On asked about Liverpool’s recent slump, Kante said “It’s difficult to explain.”

When you are champions, obviously you enjoy the reward of winning the Premier League and then you go for another season with the same focus, determination and the same demands.

Liverpool have had many injuries but it’s still hard to explain why this happened for them because they have lots of good players and a quality squad.

We know they have had a difficult time recently but they had a good win in their last game. We expect another difficult game but we go there with a lot of hope and the opportunity to win.”

On Tuchel’s impact

Chelsea have remained unbeaten in all competitions since Tuchel’s arrival, and will be hoping to continue their run against the reigning champions Liverpool on Thursday. The France international praised Tuchel’s impact and said “He’s had a big impact on us for sure.”

The team has adapted very well with him and I hope we can keep going because it’s been only a bit more than one month so far.”

He’s very demanding. He asks the team to play in a certain way and insists on some little details but there are many ways to do things.”

We want to achieve some good things at the end of the season. We are in three competitions and if we can get one or two trophies then it will be very good for us.”
