Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has identified two areas his player, Kai Havertz, must improve.
Tuchel wants Havertz, who scored the winning goal in Chelsea’s 2-1 FIFA Club World Cup victory against Palmeiras last weekend, to improve on being ‘clinical and precise’ in front of the goal.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s away Premier League tie with Crystal Palace on Saturday evening, Tuchel said, “If we isolate the goalscoring, then yeah we expect more and he [Kai Havertz] expects more, but the consistency in what he is given to the team, he has stepped up and pretty consistent.
“We can see a lot of intensity in his game and physicality. He has stepped that up this season, we have seen in training.
“I think he is in the process of being more reliable and being more consistent. Of course, he is an offensive player and has the ability to score. We want more goals and he wants more goals. In this part of the game, he can improve, be more clinical and precise. Use his technique better in shooting. So there is room to develop,” He said.
“He has stepped up twice in big matches, in big moments, and this can only be good for his development,” Tuchel added.
