The 21-year-old is set for a spell on the sidelines after Frank Lampard confirmed he has contracted coronavirus.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that midfielder Kai Havertz has tested positive for Covid-19.
As a result, the German international has entered self-isolation and will miss Chelsea’s match against Sheffield United on Saturday.
He also appears likely to miss out on Germany’s upcoming trio of matches as well.
Kai Havertz moved to the Blues from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £70 million in the summer transfer window.
He has managed four goals and three assists across his first 10 appearances for the Blues.
Three of Havertz’s four goals thus far came in a single match – a 6-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of second-tier Barnsley in September.
While Havertz has taken some time to adjust to the Premier League, his team-mate for club and country Timo Werner has backed the talented midfielder to eventually show his best form at Stamford Bridge.
