Former Chelsea defender, Glen Johnson has waded into the situation of Kai Havertz at Stamford Bridge revealing that the forward is more likely to lose his starting spot if he doesn’t start scoring consistently.
Kai Havertz started for Chelsea in Potter’s first game in charge – a 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg – but he’s been told that he could soon be dropped by the 47-year-old. The Germany international faced criticism for his performances at the start of the season and celebrated his goal against West Ham United by putting his finger to his mouth to silence his critics.

“Chelsea could look to replace Havertz, yes,” Johnson told Genting Casino. “Teams are always looking to strengthen their squad.
“Things change fast in football and he’s come up with some big goals in big games but for me, he doesn’t do it often enough.
“When he’s on it, he looks great. But in terms of the way he players, he looks slow and it looks lazy. People get frustrated but he’s not lazy, that’s just the way he plays. Players at the top level, if they don’t perform there is always the risk of being replaced.”
