This is what gives me some hope. He's having to learn a new position with a new team, while his confidence is clearly on the absolute floor. If the latter can pick up while he gets used to the role... that's the route to improvement. Though I still think it's unlikely that he works out.Holy shit I forgot about that. I think what we've seen so far from Havertz is worse than anything I saw of him at Chelsea the last 3 years. It's still only a couple of games, so I think it's fair to give him more time to adjust to playing in midfield again. It's been years since he last played there.
Rice is the replacement for Partey. He's started every game in Partey's position from last season.Yes, that's why I was surprised we did not get a replacement for Partey now, knowing that he has been unreliable. Instead we spent on a luxury in Havertz. It was a strange transfer window.
