Chelsea beat Lille: Five things learned as Havertz shines but Blues dealt injury blow

Havertz loves the Champions League 

If Lukaku looks uncomfortable and immobile in the No. 9 role, Havertz is the antithesis. Chelsea look far more fluid when the German leads the attack.  

Havertz could have had a hat-trick by the time he headed the Blues into the lead.  

He missed an excellent close-range chance early on before his curling effort was palmed away for the corner from which he scored.  

It was the 22-year-old who scored the winner in the 2020-21 Champions League Final, capping a mixed first campaign at Chelsea.  

The former Bayer Leverkusen starlet also bagged the Club World Cup-clinching penalty two weeks ago.  

To consistently translate his form on the world and European stage into the Premier League needs to be the next aim for the talented playmaker.
