Havertz is an extremely creative young midfielder, one of those players that seems to glide across the ground rather than run. He did have a very difficult start to his time with Chelsea, but began to show signs of settling in nicely at the end of the season.

A mainly left-footed player, who favours coming in from the right onto that left foot, but he tends to look to pass, rather than shoot or cross. To me he needs to be more decisive, more confident and drive more into the box and look to take the shot, something I expect will come in time as he settles in properly.

Havertz also needs to work on his fight, he rarely wins a battle for the ball and clearly does not relish the physical side of the game. He wants the ball given to him in space or put into space for him to run into and use his pace.

Despite his skill and height, Havertz does not want the ball with his back to goal or in the air for him to head, that is simply not his game. In many ways he is reminiscent of Mesut Oezil in his play, particularly in the way he makes everything seem effortless, which can often result in a belief he is not trying.

Like Oezil, he likes to play an incisive pass slipped through a gap most players would not even be aware existed. That is the key, getting the ball to him in and around the box where he can make things happen.
