Kai is our new Costa
Chelsea fans reckon Kai Havertz is turning into Diego Costa as he “just wanted a fight” in their fiery clash against Everton.
The London club fell to defeat against the Toffees after Richarlison’s goal and an inspired goalkeeping performance by Jordan Pickford.
Despite the efforts of their attackers, the Chelsea forward line were left frustrated and ended the 90 minutes without finding the net.
Havertz looked to be among the most agitated of the Blues attackers, clashing frequently with opposition players.
He eventually earned a yellow car after shoving Yerry Mina eight minutes from time.
The performance earned him comparisons to former Chelsea striker Costa, who gained a reputation for his rough and ready approach to the game.
One Chelsea fan account tweeted: “Kai Havertz is bringing back Diego Costa vibes at Goodison Park this afternoon.”
Another suggested that Havertz was “taking a chapter” out of Costa’s book, with scrapping with defenders a regular feature of the Spaniard’s strategy.
One supporter tweeted to say: “Havertz doing his best bad Diego Costa impersonation today.”
On his ongoing battle with Mina, one fan said: “I think Havertz just wants to fight Mina instead of play football.”
