Frank Lampard has backed Kai Havertz
“Kai is different to me, particularly with the knockback of Covid because he hasn’t had the time to do that extra work. We’re doing it with him now.
“He’ll be better and stronger for it in the end. He’s a young player, so even more reason to give him time.”
Chelsea host City knowing they have yet to register a win against one of the big six clubs – even during their 17-match unbeaten run that ended on December 8.
“That stat is overly spoken about. We were playing Leeds at the time and Leeds are not in the top six, but Leeds will be one of the toughest teams anyone will play this season,” Lampard said.
“Last season we beat top-six teams and finished fourth. If you want to get to the top where Liverpool and City have been for the last four years, you have to win your fair share of games so I understand that side of it.
“But after 16 games of the season, I don’t think it’s very relevant. It’s three points at the end of the day.”
