No fixed position? Kai Havertz defends himself

Kai Havertz has stressed that it doesn't matter what position he plays in - as long as he scores goals. He's balked at critics who point out that he's yet to have a permanent role.

Havertz has acted both as a center forward and as an attacking midfielder this season. This interplay was also the case in his first two years at Chelsea - in between he was even used on the wing with the Blues. There are always question marks surrounding his position; His performance would also suffer from the many castling, he is often accused.

"After three years [at Chelsea] everyone should know by now what I can do, that I'm flexible up front and can play a lot of different positions," he said, hitting back.

"Of course sometimes it's good to play in different positions and sometimes it's bad. But in general I'm an attacking player. I like being in the box. I like scoring goals. I like it, often being in the box and I don't care if I'm there number nine or number ten."

"When I'm in the penalty area, I'm there to score goals and that's it," he said, ending discussions about his best position.

Havertz was a substitute for Chelsea's draw with Manchester United last weekend but had previously played four consecutive Premier League games. During the week he also became the match winner against RB Salzburg with his 2-1 goal - his third goal of the current season.
