Chelsea: Journalist slams Kai Havertz following Arsenal defeat

Chelsea: Journalist slams Kai Havertz following Arsenal defeat -Chelsea News

Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz has been criticised by journalist Ben Jacobs for his display in the west London club’s 1-0 defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League

The Lowdown: Another league defeat for Chelsea

Last weekend saw Graham Potter’s side lose 4-1 against Brighton & Hove Albion away from home.

Their latest league outing has seen the Stamford Bridge outfit lose 1-0 to their London rivals, Arsenal, as a second-half goal from Gabriel Magalhaes was enough to see Mikel Arteta’s side get all three points.

Now that Chelsea have fallen to another defeat, it appears that Havertz, who started the game, has been on the end of some criticism for his efforts in the match.

The Latest: Criticism for Havertz

As the Gunners took the lead by Gabriel turning the ball in past Edouard Mendy from a corner struck by Bukayo Saka, Jacobs had this to say about Havertz’s role in the goal and his overall display.

In a Twitter post, Jacobs had this to say.

He said: “Arsenal have a deserved lead. Gabriel turns in Saka’s enticing corner. Havertz, who has been poor, will be disappointed not to have cleared it at the near post.”

The Verdict: A poor showing from Havertz

With 64 minutes under his belt, the German had 35 touches of the ball in total, which is fewer than Mendy had in goal (42).

The £150k-per-week attacker also gave possession away 13 times for his side before being replaced by Conor Gallagher, as well as giving two fouls away.

The Evening Standard also picked up on Havertz’s poor performance by giving him a match rating of 4/10 and highlighting how “wasteful” he was throughout the game.

Taking all of this into account, it’s safe to say that the Chelsea attacker had a rather poor outing against Arsenal and barely helped his side out in terms of helping them score goals and avoiding conceding them.
