Cascarino: Chelsea whiz Havertz BETTER than Sancho

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has hailed the acquisition of Kai Havertz.

The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder made a winning debut at Brighton last night.

Before the game, Cascarino wrote for The Times: “I cannot wait to see Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic leading the line for Chelsea.

“Frank Lampard's team now have the most exciting front three in the Premier League and, whisper it, they have what it takes to be more prolific than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool.

“[Christian] Pulisic and Havertz are blessed with pace and great technique, and [Timo] Werner is a lethal finisher.

“Havertz, in particular, is going to be a massive player for Chelsea. He is a better acquisition this summer than Jadon Sancho would be."
