Kai Havertz, Arsenal’s summer signing, is yet to make a notable impact since his arrival at the club.

Arsenal has had a strong start to the season, winning its first games in the Champions League and Carabao Cup. They are now in fifth place in the Premier League rankings, just three points behind Brighton, Liverpool, and Manchester City. Despite their successful start under manager Mikel Arteta, Kai Havertz, their summer acquisition, has received some criticism..

It’s important to clarify that Havertz is not operating as a striker, as he did during his Chelsea tenure, which naturally affects his goal-scoring output.

Arsenal’s style of play has shifted towards greater midfield control under Arteta, and this is where Havertz has been particularly influential

Former Arsenal midfielder David Hillier, a figure well-versed in the qualities of exceptional midfielders, recently shared his perspective on Kai Havertz. In a comparison with Manchester United’s Mason Mount, Hillier suggested that both players find themselves in similar situations currently but emphasized that Havertz holds a distinct advantage, asserting that he is ‘much better’ than Mount.”

Both players arrived at their respective clubs for significant fees from Chelsea, inevitably drawing a great deal of scrutiny. However, it’s noteworthy that Havertz has faced substantial criticism, while Mount’s occasional underperformance seems to receive less attention, highlighting a potential bias in the media’s coverage towards Arsenal.
