Adrian Durham has had some fairly wild opinions through the years – however this one is perhaps one of many boldest.
Our very personal Drivetime host has made the declare that Tammy Abraham is healthier than Kai Havertz.
The Blues spent over £70m on German attacker Havertz earlier this summer season and he hit a hat-trick within the cup win over Barnsley on Wednesday.
However Durham has insisted that Frank Lampard already has a superior attacker on his books already – and he value the Blues nothing.
He mentioned: “Tammy Abraham is healthier than Kai Havertz. He’s older than Kai Havertz – however there’s not loads in it.
“And I’m Havertz – sure he bought a hat-trick final evening and it does depend – however he’ll want time to settle within the Premier League.
“He’s taken the no.9 final weekend [against Liverpool], been dragged off at half-time.
“They’ve bought a man, their high scorer from final season, sitting round and ready for an opportunity they usually’re making an attempt to embed a participant in who hasn’t even appeared the half to date.
“Can anyone actually categorically say to me, and again it up with actual causes, Kai Havertz is certainly higher than Tammy Abraham? What proof is there?”
As ever, they’re daring claims from Durham, however how do the 2 gamers evaluate?
Abraham led the road for the Blues for almost all of the 2019/20 season and hit 15 targets in 35 Premier League appearances. He additionally supplied three assists over the marketing campaign.
Havertz, in the meantime, scored much less targets (12) however doubled Abraham’s help tally final marketing campaign (6).

One of many foremost causes that Lampard sought to carry Havertz to Stamford Bridge was for his versatility as he can play anyplace throughout the ahead line and within the no.10 position.
His hat-trick on Wednesday night would have undoubtedly had Blues followers purring, however more durable checks than Barnsley await.
