Havertz’s Play Recalls Liverpool Legend for Neville

Following a sluggish start at Arsenal, summer signing Kai Havertz has become a key cog in Mikel Arteta’s machine. His recent performances have been stellar, including a standout display where he assisted the winning goal against Manchester United.

Previously deployed as a center-forward at Chelsea, Havertz rarely seemed comfortable in that role. However, at Arsenal, he’s flourishing in a more familiar attacking midfield position.

His physical presence combined with technical skill allows him to contribute in various ways, proving invaluable to Arteta’s tactical philosophy.

Havertz’s impact hasn’t gone unnoticed. After his performance against United, Manchester United legend Gary Neville compared his play to a Liverpool legend.

The German international currently boasts 12 goals and 7 assists in the Premier League this season and is clearly a vital piece of the puzzle for Arsenal.
