Shearer: Havertz is now showing his class

Kai Havertz, Shearer's Team of the Week

Inaugural Hall of Fame inductee names the Chelsea star in his Team of the Week

The German revolution continues at Chelsea, with Kai Havertz becoming an increasingly influential player under his head coach and countryman Thomas Tuchel.

After taking time to adapt to the Premier League, a move up front has helped the 21-year-old to shine, and he starred in Saturday's victory over Fulham, scoring both of his side's goals.

Inaugural Premier League Hall of Fame inductee Alan Shearer is pleased to see Havertz now showcasing his ability, and has named him in his Team of the Week.

"He made several excellent saves. That performance bodes well for England this summer."

Jonny Evans (LEI) | SOU 1-1 LEI
"With his team-mates struggling to break down 10-man Southampton, he stepped up to the plate and headed in his second goal in three matches."

Benjamin Mendy (MCI) | CRY 0-2 MCI
