liverpoolecho: Kai Havertz has fired a warning to Liverpool after making his debut for Chelsea in the Blues’ 3-1 win over Brighton on Monday night.
The Germany international joined Frank Lampard’s side in a £71m deal from Bayer Leverkusen earlier this month having shone in the Bundesliga, but endured a quiet maiden outing in the Premier League against the Seagulls.
Liverpool, who had been linked with a move for the 21-year-old in the past but never followed through on any interest, are set to provide the opposition for Havertz’s home debut at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
And despite seeing the Reds claim a league double over Chelsea as they finished 33 points ahead of the Londoners to win the Premier League last season, lifting the trophy following a 5-3 win over Lampard’s side at Anfield, Havertz has insisted his new club are more than capable of taking points off Jurgen Klopp ‘s men.
“Of course they are one of the best teams in the world,” he admitted after making his Chelsea debut. “We show respect but we are a very great team as well.
“It will be a very hard game but for them also. We will work hard and I think we will have a chance to take points.”
