Chelsea summer signing Kai Havertz is happy fellow German Timo Werner is also at Stamford Bridge.

Both have played together previously with the German national team and have played against one another on countless occasions when they faced one another in the Bundesliga for their former clubs.

After playing together for Chelsea on two occasions, Havertz is keen to develop a stronger understanding with Werner at Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks and months.

“I’m very happy that Timo is here,” he said.

“I met him first in the national team in Germany and now we are friends so I think we will have a good German connection in the team now.

“We haven’t played so many games together, just one or two in the national team and now one game for Chelsea, but I’m very excited to play more with him.

“He’s a big friend of mine and when you have a friend in your team it’s always easier to play football. I’m looking forward it and I think we will do well.”

Chelsea face Barnsley in the Carabao Cup this evening with both players expected to feature and both signings will hope to get off the mark in a Chelsea shirt.
