Kai Havertz mentioned that it has been a tough season for him at Chelsea but is optimistic to find pace soon enough.

Kai Havertz admitted that it has been a difficult period for him to adjust to the surrounding at Chelsea. The Blues purchased the German sensation for £70 million in the summer transfer window hoping that he would light up the pitch at Stamford Bridge.

However, the 21-year-old failed to meet the club expectations after moving from Bayer Leverkusen last year. Having said that, Havertz seems to have picked up pace lately with some good performances under Thomas Tuchel. 

The attacking midfielder has been showing buoyant signs and believes that he will return to best form by the end of the season. Havertz spoke about his struggle at Chelsea after Germany’s close win against Romania on Sunday night.

“It’s been a tough season. I know that things haven’t been going smoothly. But I think that’s normal when you first go abroad. It takes half a year or longer to adjust.”

“I think that things are going well right now so I don’t want to overthink those negative impressions from the past. I am positive and hope that the next weeks will be every bit as good.”

If we take a glance at Havertz’s time in London, he made his Chelsea debut in the opening Premier League game against Brighton. Since then, the youngster has appeared 32 times for the Blues across all competitions.

But considering the percentage of his presence on the pitch, he has only scored once in the top-flight and yet to net a Champions League goal. Though Kai has five goals and seven assists overall for Chelsea.
