Kai Havertz, protagonist of Chelsea’s victory over Tottenham, had to deal with a curious and painful injury that did not stop him, at least until the interval.
Kai Havertz was one of the protagonists of Chelsea’s victory over Tottenham in the first leg of the League Cup. The Blues who found Lukaku, who returned to the field against his former mentor Conte, won 2-0 by placing a mortgage on the victory of the final, where they could meet one between Liverpool and Arsenal. The first goal was scored by the German, but he had little to celebrate.
The 22-year-old pupil of Tuchel broke the deadlock at the start of the match by making the most of an assist from Marcos Alonso. Incuneatosi in the area in a tight angle he managed to kick by beating the opposing goalkeeper. Desperate attempt on the line of Davinson Sanchez, who deflected the ball into his own goal. A situation that, however, was not considered an own goal, given that Havertz’s attempt, even without the intervention of the Spurs center, would have ended up on the net.
Even before the ball ended up in the bottom of the bag, Havertz was unable to perfectly climb over Lloris and therefore ended up falling with all his weight on his arms. Immediately after, the teammates who covered him arrived and celebrated for the marking. When he got up, however, the German seemed sore and was unable to cheer. Thus he began to touch his right hand covered by the glove.
When he went to the bench, he took off his glove which showed the serious injury to his finger bent unnaturally due to the consequences of the previous fall. The doctors tried to remedy or at least alleviate Havertz’s pain, who despite everything managed to return to the field with a special bandage. With great courage the former Bayer Leverkusen remained on the pitch until half-time when he then had to raise the white flag. Before leaving, however, he also celebrated the doubling of Chelsea, which came thanks to a mocking own goal by Tanganga.
