Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has warned Kai Havertz that he may lose his starting role under new boss Graham Potter.

Havertz was a regular under former boss Thomas Tuchel, but Glen Johnson doesn’t think Havertz has been consistent enough.

“Chelsea could look to replace Havertz, yes,” Johnson told Genting Casino.

“Teams are always looking to strengthen their squad.

“Things change fast in football and he’s come up with some big goals in big games but for me he doesn’t do it often enough.

“When he’s on it, he looks great. But in terms of the way he players, he looks slow and it looks lazy. People get frustrated but he’s not lazy, that’s just the way he plays. Players at the top level, if they don’t perform there is always the risk of being replaced.”
