Havertz on challenges ahead and helping out back home

The Blues head into the game against our London rivals in fine form, having already beaten Palace in the Premier League and lifted the Super Cup prior to that fixture.

Havertz, who came on as a late substitute against the Eagles, will hope to start against Arsenal but acknowledges that this will be a tougher test for the Blues, despite our strong start to the season and the positive atmosphere around the club.

‘At the moment the atmosphere is very good,’ Kai explained. ‘When you start the season like we have, winning a European title and our first Premier League game, it’s very good for us.

‘It’s just the beginning though and there will be some tough challenges ahead, with Arsenal on Sunday the next one.

‘We have to keep going, we are just the hunters and we want to keep winning games. When you have a little taste of winning trophies like we have done, you want more of that. So that’s the goal for the season ahead.
