‘What happened there?’: BBC pundit genuinely disappointed in Arsenal’s 24-year-old

Kai Havertz started for Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League against Erik ten Hags Manchester United.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta opted to use Kai Havertz in the left midfield three-pointer against Manchester United.

The Germany international, who can play as a midfielder or striker, made the move from London to Arsenal and Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old failed to make an immediate impression at the Emirates Stadium.

Havertz is at his best when played as number 10.

But at Arsenal, Martin Odegaard is the chief creator.

It seems Arteta is doing his best to integrate Havertz into the team.

It’s not working at the moment.

And there was a moment in the first half of the Premier League game between Arsenal and Manchester United that pretty much summed up Havertz’s time with the Gunners so far.

Havertz was only 10 yards away in the middle of the goal.

The ball fell to him.

The ex-Chelsea player just had to hit the ball on goal.

He failed.

Havertz cut the shot and made a terrible connection.

It was poor.

Very poor.

And former Arsenal defender and BBC sport pundit Matthew Upson was left disappointed.

continued Upson BBC Sports: “Wow. This man, Martinelli, is on fire at the moment.

“It falls on Kai Havertz’s feet and on his left foot, I don’t know what happened there. He didn’t seem particularly relaxed or at ease.
