In the 22nd minute of this evening’s Premier League tie between Crystal Palace and Chelsea, Jorginho showed his quality by floating a fine long-range pass over the top of the Eagles’ collapsed defence.
Havertz produced a marvellous touch which flicked the ball over the head of Chelsea academy graduate Patrick van Aanholt, which left the full-back completely perplexed.
The 21-year-old fired a shot towards the bottom corner, which was parried away by Vicente Guaita. Former Blues captain Gary Cahill couldn’t get close enough with his attempt to block the strike.

Chelsea have been crying out for this kind of performance from Havertz, who joined the Blues in a deal worth up to £71m per ESPN. The 21-year-old is making an undeniable case to remain as a starter.
