‘Our best attacker by miles’ Chelsea fans single out one man for praise in Club World Cup clash with Al-Hilal

Chelsea are currently locked in action with Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal in the semi-final of the Club World Cup.

Having travelled to Abu Dhabi following their 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle at Saturday lunchtime, the Blues are now enjoying the benefits of winning the Champions League last season, as they represent Europe in the tournament.

And, despite a mixed start to the game, Chelsea began to dominate the affair, and took the lead on the half-hour mark thanks to Romelu Lukaku, who took advantage of some frankly awful defending to scramble home the ball following a Kai Havertz cross.

But there was one man that the attention of the Chelsea faithful fell on during the first half.

Havertz stands out

Kai Havertz was just that man. Deployed on the left of Chelsea’s attack, the German showed a range of nice touches and found a cross for Lukaku to open the scoring, with the only goal of the affair thus far.

And safe to say, the Chelsea fans were quick to sing his praises, as can be seen below.
