Man City’s Gundogan backs Chelsea’s German duo to prove themselves in Premier League

Chelsea vs Man City

The weekend’s marquee Premier League tie is set to play out later today

The clash in question will see Chelsea welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge.

The former began the weekend’s action down in 5th spot in the English top-flight, after picking up just one win across their prior five league outings.

City, on the other hand, are in much better form, having won three and drawn two of their last five.

In turn, with two games in hand on the majority of the sides around them, the Sky Blues were aware that a pair of wins in these outings could see them climb as high as 3rd.

Gundogan on Havertz & Werner

Ahead of his side’s latest outing, meanwhile, Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan this weekend opened up on a pair of Chelsea stars.

The players in question come in the form of Gundogan’s international teammates, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.

Both made the move to Stamford Bridge over the summer, but are yet to showcase their best in the colours of the Blues.

Frank Lampard, meanwhile, recently moved to defend Havertz, suggesting that the lingering effects of a bout of Covid-19 have proven a factor in his struggles over recent months.

And now, Gundogan has provided his backing to both Chelsea stars, assuring that Werner and Havertz will go on to prove themselves in the English top-flight:

“They have two new German players who have tried to adapt as well as possible.

“In general, I think it’s not easy to adapt quickly to the Premier League when you come from a different country and now with the situation going on I think it’s just even harder.

“So I think it’s quite normal that they are struggling a little bit, but they both have incredible talent and I’m sure they will both be able to prove it in this league.”
