Kai Havertz Scores First Career Hat-Trick In Chelsea's 6-0 Trouncing

Kai Havertz showed Chelsea fans what he's all about tonight when he bagged a first career hat-trick in the 6-0 humbling of Barnsley in the Carabao Cup.

The German didn't get going in his first two games against Burnley and Liverpool, which brought about some concerns from Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports.

But against considerably weaker opposition, he produced a superb, all-action display at Stamford Bridge.

Havertz opened his account for Frank Lampard's side with a neat left-footed finish to put Chelsea 2-0 up after a tidy dummy from Tammy Abraham in the first half before the England striker assisted him for his second shortly after the interval.

Having set up Ross Barkley for the third goal following a brilliant tackle to win the ball back high up the pitch, he collected the match-ball when he seized on an error from opposition goalkeeper and former Chelsea prospect Bradley Collins.

An impressive showing from Havertz, with his numbers also looking very good in his third game since his £71.6 million transfer from Bayer Leverkusen.

He'll need to be producing these level of displays on a consistent basis against much better sides but his work tonight will give the 21-year-old a whole lot of confidence going forward.

Abraham and Olivier Giroud scored the other goals, with £45 million summer signing Ben Chilwell registering an assist on his debut after coming on as a substitute.
