Kai Havertz has revealed that the main difference between the Bundesliga and the Premier League is that every player in the English top flight ‘is at a very high level.’
After starring for Bayer Leverkusen, Havertz joined Chelsea last month for £89m and has made five appearances for the Blues so far.
Havertz stressed that there aren’t many differences between top flight football in England and Germany, but stressed that there ‘aren’t any average or bad players’ in the Premier League.

Havertz told Chelsea’s official website: ‘The Bundesliga isn’t worse but I noticed differences. It seems to me like there aren’t any average or bad players here – everybody is at a very high level.’
The 21-year-old scored a hat-trick against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup as he started to find his feet in England, while he set up a goal in the 3-3 draw with West Brom in the Premier League.

So far Havertz has been used out wide and as an attacking midfielder by Frank Lampard, although it is anticipated that he will mainly be deployed in the latter position.
Havertz is currently on international duty with Germany and set up two goals in the 3-3 draw against Turkey in a friendly.
Next up for Germany are two Nations League fixtures – away to Ukraine and at home to Switzerland.
Following that, Havertz will return to England, with Chelsea hosting Southampton in the Premier League next weekend.
