End of term report: Kai Havertz’s 2020/21

The young German faced plenty of difficulties early in his first year in England, adapting to life in a new country during a pandemic, while suffering from injury and illness, but came through it all to finish the season with the greatest moment of his career so far.

Once those initial fitness concerns were behind him, Havertz’s attacking versatility became crucial to our tactical flexibility, especially under Thomas Tuchel in the latter stages of 2020/21, in addition to his combined 20 goals and assists, becoming most obvious at the business end of our triumphant Champions League campaign against Real Madrid and Manchester City.
