Chelsea: Kai Havertz scores his first goal for the club in EFL Cup tie vs Barnsley


Kai Havertz has scored his first goal for Chelsea.

The attacking midfielder got off the mark by scoring the Blues' second goal in their EFL Cup contest against Championship side Barnsley at Stamford Bridge.

Havertz shone in the first half with some decent touches of the ball.

And his efforts were rewarded on the half hour mark when he turned the ball home from close range.


Chelsea paid Bayer Leverkusen £71.6 million to sign Havertz so there's a lot of pressure on the youngster's performances.

He was largely ineffective in his first two games for the club, against Brighton and Chelsea, but an EFL Cup contest against Barnsley presented Havertz with a great opportunity to gain some confidence.

And it proved to be the perfect match for the 21-year-old to do just that by scoring his first Chelsea goal.


Havertz scores his first Chelsea goal

The Germany international had already given Frank Lampard's side the lead when Havertz made it 2-0 in the 29th minute.

The 21-year-old finished off after Abraham dummied Mason Mount's pass into his path.

The first of many for the £71 million star?

Chelsea fans will be hoping so.

Havertz involved in third goal

Havertz was also involved in Chelsea's third goal, which was scored by Ross Barkley in the 49th minute. 

The summer signing showed great determination to win the ball on the edge of Barnsley's area, with the ball falling to Barkley. The English midfielder fired home with his left foot to seal Chelsea's place in the fourth round.

He then grabbed his second goal

And Havertz wasn't done there. He made it 4-0 in the 55th minute following another piece of impressive link-up play with Abraham.

Havertz is up and running and there could be no stopping him.
