WHAT THEY SAID: "That’s the thing, Kai is still young and can play in lots of positions. He is probably not quite leading the line now, he's behind the line, and that's probably his best position," he said. "Although I would not rule anything out with Kai because the mentality is there and he has got all the attributes to do anything.
"I think he is a confident player, but he is also someone who you need to help. I can’t speak highly enough of him, to be honest. He has given everything all the time, does his absolute best, takes responsibility, and is an absolute dream to work with as a coach. He wants to learn, wants to improve, and gives his best to the team. He deals with adversity in a sensible, mature way, and rides out the storm. Then, because of the quality he has, he gets his rewards."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Havertz used to be Chelsea's No. 9 until Felix's arrival in the January transfer window from Atletico Madrid on loan. Since then, the Spaniard has been Potter's trusted man up top. Felix has appeared in eight matches for the Blues thus far scoring once.
