Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has expressed how happy he is with the way German internationals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have integrated into the Premier League so far.

The pair signed for the west London side in the summer of 2020 and have since become frequently used members of Tuchel's Champions League winning side.

22-year-old Havertz even scored the winning goal in the 2021 Champions League final in May.
