Ebene News – GB – Carragher makes notable omission when telling Lampard Chelsea’s best midfielder

Kai Havertz has struggled to make an impression so far at Chelsea – and Jamie Carragher has told Frank Lampard that the signing of the summer shouldn’t be his first-choice midfielder

Havertz was left out of Frank Lampard’s starting lineup for the West Ham visit as he chose to bring in Jorginho alongside Mason Mount and Nâ ???? Golo Kante

German playmaker Havertz, who joined Bayer Leverkusen for a whopping £ 72million plus additions, struggled to make an impact early on at Stamford Bridge

Carragher admits he struggles to see a role for the 21-year-old in Chelsea’s starting lineup

And he told ex-England teammate Lampard his best midfielder had to include Kante and Mount alongside Jorginho or Mateo Kovacic

Speaking ahead of the West Ham game on Sky Sports, Carragher said of Havertz: “I think right now he’s finding it difficult It wasn’t easy, a new country, obviously it also had COVID

– I said earlier in the season sometimes players fall into this category, you don’t really know where they fit

– I think for Frank he’s probably not quite sure where he fits He spent a lot of money on him so you have to try and find him a job in some way

– But to me Chelsea look stronger with Kante, Mount and one other, and when I say another I mean either Jorginho or Kovacic

– So it’s Jorginho tonight in this position It looks a lot stronger this midfielder, for me

I think Chelsea, Frank, the public are just waiting to see what kind of player Havertz really is and where he fits, in the long run, in this Chelsea 4-3-3, which looks like the system on which Frank has really settled in this seasonâ ????

Ahead of the game, Lampard explained his decision to leave Havertz and Olivier Giroud out of the starting lineup

– I have choices to make and whatever I do, there are probably good reasons for others

â ???? With Tammy some energy in the squad for the Oli front has been fantastic and Oli can obviously come off the bench too, I have choices pretty much every week with these two

– With Kai, likewise, I have midfield players who are in competition I must have a good level of competition

Nothing against Kai, he finds his feet and he will find his feet, just the midfielder I picked tonightâ ????
