Havertz explains his most fancied role on the pitch after being used in the flanks, midfield and center-forward since joining the Blues this summer.
The 21-year-old has seen himself take on deputy roles on a number of occasions this season, given the injury crisis that rocked the Blues squad earlier this season.
Kai Havertz admits he is happy to play in any position Frank Lampard wants him to as long as he is getting minutes for Chelsea.
“Of course I like to play offensively but in Leverkusen I think I played in every offensive position, so for me it doesn’t matter what position it is,” Havertz told the Chelsea website.Embed from Getty Images
“I am very happy to play and at the moment it doesn’t matter which position. We have a lot of good players, you see that on the pitch and I am just happy to play.”
“I am feeling better. It is not easy when you are out for two or three weeks not doing anything, you lose your whole fitness level. I am two and a half weeks back now in training, feeling good, better day by day.

It hasn’t been the easiest start to the campaign for the summer signing, who made the move from Bayer Leverkusen for more than £70million.
The 21-year-old has scored just once in the Premier League so far and added one assist, with two assists in the Champions League.
Havertz also missed two weeks of training after suffering coronavirus and having to self-isolate over the international break.
