Chelsea boss Lampard insists he has plan for Havertz

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has dismissed doubts over the future of Kai Havertz.

It's been suggested the former Bayer Leverkusen star doesn't fit within Lampard's system.

But the manager says: "Kai has played various positions in career, as number nine, number eight and a number 10.

"He played lots off the right for Leverkusen and I have my own vision going forward.

"The key now is getting him fit.

"Kai, with the situation we are in we aren't in a position where we can wait. We need to get him fit, and it'll become very clear why he's here."
