Kai Havertz played a key role in Arsenal’s tight victory over Liverpool at The Emirates Stadium.
Havertz, a German forward, was initially the attack’s major focal point but gradually fell back to make Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate’s day more challenging than they had hoped.
Havertz ultimately demonstrated why Mikel Arteta signed him in the summer and shown that he is a well-liked player in the first team, even though he did not register a point.
Havertz does seem to be well-liked by everyone at the club, as evidenced by the numerous compliments he received from Arsenal players and staff after they took to Instagram yesterday to celebrate the win.
Chief Arsenal official Edu Gaspar, as well as important players Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli, were among those who jumped into the comments section to show some love for the German.
Arsenal’s Kai Havertz is beginning to produce.
It’s possible that he won’t be a goal scorer or a player who wows Arsenal supporters with multiple magical moments per game. However, Havertz is currently making a positive impact and demonstrating why the team signed him.
His stature and movement did pose challenges for the Liverpool defenders against them, and there were moments when Van Dijk and Konate were unsure of where to go.
Arsenal needs their big names to perform if they are to have any chance of winning the league or anything else, and Kai Havertz seems to be just getting warmed up.
Recall that this is a player who has scored a goal in the Champions League final, and that accomplishment shouldn’t be disregarded.
Havertz was brought in by Arsenal to support them during crunch times, and as the season nears its end, there’s a sense the German will make his move.
