Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has admonished Chelsea midfielder, Kai Havertz to do his best to adapt to the English Premier League (EPL) after a stellar performance against Everton yesterday.
Tuchel who spoke after the match indicated that he was very pleased with Havertz especially for performing beyond his expectation in a very fluid performance but needs to try and adapt to the EPL.
‘There is no doubt about his quality, his talent and also his character. He needs to adapt to the Premier League and a new club where you play to win every game and the highest standards are normal but he did that excellently today”.
He also added that he has all the qualities and talents to be a strong force to reckon with in the league as an offensive midfielder, something he demonstrated yesterday.

“He is a guy that has all the qualities and all the talents to be a dominant figure in the offence. He stepped up and was involved in a lot of dangerous attacking situations for us. I’m very happy with him and that he could show a performance like he did tonight, which I think highlights what he can bring to this team” he intimated.

However, Tuchel also explained why he had to be making changes to the squad and rotating the players. According to the German gaffer, everyone in the team deserves to play and depending on the type of game, he would make changes.
“We changed a little bit also for the characteristics of the offensive players because we expected a bit of man-marking in offensive midfield so we went more for speed and for deep runs. There is a reason for every change. You cannot just say you trust them – you have to let them play and they need to show it” he added.
