‘Way Stronger Than Havertz’ ‘Room For Improvement’ Fans Debate Chelsea Striker’s Performance Against Udinese

Chelsea forward Armando Broja was given the first 45 minutes against Udinese’s second string yesterday as he looks to make an impression ahead of the new season.

With Romelu Lukaku having left the club on loan, and Timo Werner seemingly heading for the exit door as well, Broja could end up being the only recognised striker in the first-team squad.

However, he went into yesterday’s game after only recently recovering from a foot injury, and supporters on Twitter had a mixed reaction to his performance in Italy:

It’s difficult to make a proper judgement on Broja’s display, considering his fitness levels and the fact that he wasn’t playing in a team full of first-team regulars.

The 20-year-old did demonstrate his ability to be a target man and his willingness to make forward runs, but he did lack sharpness in front of goal.

Although manager Thomas Tuchel has seemingly ruled out a permanent departure, Broja is still being pursued by the likes of Newcastle, West Ham and Everton, who want to sign him on loan. We shall see what the future holds for the player.
