Kai Havertz reflects on his goals and discusses partnership with Tammy Abraham | Official Site

It was a wonderful Wednesday evening for Kai Havertz, who marked his third appearance for Chelsea with three goals, so no wonder the hat-trick hero had plenty to smile about when he spoke after our big win over Barnsley.

It was Abraham who put us ahead and Havertz that doubled the lead before a goal-laden second half made the final scoreline so emphatic, although things might have been different against the Tykes had Willy Caballero not made a number of impressive saves.

‘When you are Chelsea and you play against lower teams everybody says you have to win, but it’s not that easy,’ noted Havertz, who played just over an hour.

‘They can run, they can shoot, and it was difficult for us, but we did very well and are very happy to get through to next round.

‘In the first half they had many chances and we were lucky they didn’t score, but offensively we played very well. Not everyone is fit and we can do better, but for the third game it’s already getting better and I hope we can continue on Saturday.’
