Germany boss provides injury update on Kai Havertz

Chelsea forward Kai Havertz has missed some training sessions for Germany this week due to a pain in his thigh, but Germany manager Hansi Flick has given a positive update on the 22-year-old.

He stated that the youngster is available for selection for their match against Armenia today.

He sat out of Thursday’s emphatic 9-0 win over Liechtenstein due to suspension but has since returned to training with Die Mannschaft.

Havertz then missed training yet again on Friday due to the same issue but, thankfully for Blues fans, Flick provided an update on the injury on Saturday, with Germany in action against Armenia on Sunday in Yerevan.

“Marc [ter Stegen] will play from the beginning, we also assume that Kai can play,” said the former Bayern Munich boss.

“He trained with the team for the first time today, he is fit and will play from the start.”

Havertz has so far played 16 matches for Chelsea this season and already has four goals and two assists to his name.
