Havertz recognised the importance of beating Fulham and is now eyeing to start against the Spanish side.

“I think it [beating Fulham] was very important," said Havertz.

“We have to come in the top four of the Premier League, that is our goal for the season and this win today is crucial for us. Then, on Wednesday we have another important game so we’re happy with the win.

“I scored very early so it gave me a little bit of confidence, it is always good to score and I’m happy to help the team. I hope I can continue like this on Wednesday."


He added: “I’m always desperate to start games, I play football. But I know we have a lot of quality players in the team and the other players play well as well.

“I keep going, train hard and give my best. We will see on Wednesday.”

Regarding the assists from Mason Mount and Timo Werner, the German added: “We have a lot of quality players in our team and for us it is easy to create chances. When you have midfielders like this behind you, it is always.”
