Kai Havertz says Chelsea FC see themselves as “hunters” of Liverpool FC and Man City this season
In this season’s Premier League title competition, Kai Havertz has described Chelsea FC as the “hunters” of Liverpool FC and Manchester City.
Following their Champions League title and a fourth-place finish last season, the Blues have made a strong start to the new season under Thomas Tuchel, as they attempt to challenge on all fronts.
Manchester City won the Premier League title last season by finishing 12 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United, while Liverpool FC finished third due to a lack of consistency throughout the season.
Chelsea FC has bolstered their squad with the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez, setting the groundwork for an exciting Premier League title chase this season.
Manchester City added Jack Grealish from Aston Villa to their squad, while Manchester United added Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho.
Havertz, who joined Chelsea FC from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, describes himself and his teammates as “hunters” chasing after the Premier League champions.
Havertz stated in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of the Blues’ trip to Tottenham on Sunday: “The last couple of years, Liverpool and Manchester City have been the greatest, and we can’t just declare this year we’re going to win it [Premier League] because we won the champions league.”
“Of course, we have the quality and the players to win the league, but it’s too early to declare that after the fourth game,” he said.
We’ve also stated that we’re on the hunt for Liverpool and City, since they’ve demonstrated in recent years that they’re unstoppable, and we want to prove that we’re seeking the Champions League championship as well.”
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Naby Keita scored for Liverpool FC in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday. Manchester City, meanwhile, drew 0-0 with Southampton at The Etihad Stadium.
Havertz had a mixed debut season in the Premier League last season, scoring four goals and assisting three times in 27 appearances.
He did, however, finish the season on a high note by scoring the game-winning goal against Manchester City in the Champions League final.
