Manager Frank Lampard is unconcerned about Kai Havertz after his disappointing debut for Chelsea. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder, who was taken over from Bayer Leverkusen for 80 million this summer, could not impress on Monday against Brighton & Hove Albion (1-3 victory) and was replaced after eighty minutes.

‘We are still behind on Liverpool’

“He is a good player and there is a lot of pressure on his shoulders. But I have already seen glimpses of what he has to offer”, Lampard said afterwards. Sky Sports.

He replaced Havertz in the final phase for Callum Hudson-Odoi. “But everything I’ve seen of him so far has been excellent. His qualities will emerge. He is incredibly talented.”

The heavily renovated Chelsea had a difficult opening match at Brighton & Hove Albion at all. Despite the 1-3 victory, the game of the Londoners looked viscous and the home team created the most opportunities.

Brighton, where Joël Veltman remained on the bench for the entire match, even came to 1-1 after 54 minutes after goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was unable to turn a sustainable long shot by Leandro Trossard. A minute later, Reece James put Chelsea back in the lead, after which Kurt Zouma secured the victory.

“We’ve only been complete for four days. You can’t expect everything to work from day one,” said Lampard. “We have shown perseverance. We might have missed points in such a game last season.”

Expectations are high at Chelsea after the club bought more than 200 million euros in players on the summer transfer market. In addition to Havertz, the Londoners also strengthened themselves with striker Timo Werner (53 million euros, RB Leipzig), left back Ben Chilwell (50 million euros, Leicester City) and playmaker Hakim Ziyech (40 million euros, Ajax).

“Of course we want to close the gap with Liverpool. In fact, we want to finish above them, even if that may be a lot to ask. We are still behind. It’s step by step. Hopefully we can move quickly.”
