Kai Havertz was proud of his double in Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Fulham.
Havertz admits he’s found the English schedule an eye-opener.
He said, “It is very hard, you have to concentrate every three days on another game, another competition. We have played almost nine months already and have three days to regenerate.
“Of course it is very hard but that is the reason why we are professional. I played in the Europa League with Leverkusen but here with two more teams in the league, and one cup more, it is hard. But we are very happy to play in these competitions.”
Will today’s performance help him start against Real Madrid on Wednesday?
“I’m always desperate to start games, I play football. But I know we have a lot of quality players in the team and the other players play well as well.
“I keep going, train hard and give my best. We will see on Wednesday.”
