Kai Havertz showed fans exactly what he's all about with an incredible performance during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Real Madrid.
But one standout star came in the form of Havertz. The 21-year-old strutted his stuff at Stamford Bridge and made his older foes in midfield look slow.
Slick on the ball and ready to take a man on, the German was a focal point as Chelsea dominated play.
The home side could've scored more and Havertz managed to leave Toni Kroos as well as defender Sergio Ramos in the dust numerous times.
Fans have reacted to the youngster's performance and they think he's finally arrived in English football.
One fan commented: "Someone said Havertz made Sergio Ramos look like Per Mertesacker."
Another added: "Havertz was nutmegging Real Madrid players tonight. He was out to end careers."
A third said: "Tuchel's call to start Kai Havertz tonight proved to be an excellent decision."
While another put: "Havertz's best match for the club. Outstanding."
Havertz arrived from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer for a fee in the region of £71 million.
Injury and Covid diagnosis hampered his first few months in London but he's settled in the team now.
Rio Ferdinand provided punditry on the game for BT Sport and compared Havertz to a former teammate of his - Dimitar Berbatov.
Ferdinand told BT Sport per Metro: 'He [Havertz] reminds me of Berbatov, a player I played with at Manchester United. He's got that lazy swagger at times and that nonchalance about him.
'The guy is just so smooth man. The game doesn't quicken up around him. The game slows down to his pace, he gets things done. I think he will grow into a really important player for Chelsea."
Michael Owen added: "I like Havertz. Some people hit the ground running when they come to the Premier League, he's needed a bit of time but he's a great asset.
"Not many players can do what he does. He's going to be very good for this football club, I just think he needs time."
