Arsenal star Kai Havertz snaps back at Jamie Redknapp’s question following record-breaking goal

Kai Havertz was not shy in letting Jamie Redknapp know what he thought of his question after being asked what he feels his best position is.

The versatile Arsenal star proved to be the club’s hero again as he scored a dramatic winner against Brentford to send the north Londoners top.

Mikel Arteta’s side looked set to drop points for the first time since New Year’s Eve after Aaron Ramsdale was guilty of a horror mistake.

But Havertz, who led the line yet again, put the Gunners 2-1 up in the 86th minute with a clinical header to make it eight successive Premier League victories for Arsenal.

In doing so, the German has now found the back of the net in four consecutive English top-flight matches for the first time in his career.

But fans and pundits continue to question what his best position is, with Arteta deploying him as a midfielder and centre-forward this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Havertz was asked by Redknapp what position he believes he performs best in.

Expressing his annoyance over the question, he said: “I don’t know how many times I answered this question already.

“I’m just happy to be on the pitch. I’m not a player who only plays in one position.

“Sometimes it’s good, sometimes its bad, but it suits me quite well.

“I just love it in this team. I love to play as the false nine, the eight, as the No10, wherever you want me to go.

“In Germany. I played as a left-back as well, so it’s all good.”

Havertz was also the match-winner at the Gtech Community Stadium in November, where he again scored a header in the dying embers of the clash.

With eight Premier League goals this term, he has now matched his highest tally in a single season following his three years spent at Stamford Bridge.
