Chelsea are going through one of the toughest periods of their history, having been placed under restrictions by the UK government.
Kai Havertz, who scored the Blues’ winning goal against Newcastle, insists it’s fans and those people who work at the club who feel this the most.
“We – the players – are in a good situation, really, we feel bad for everyone else,” Kai told the BBC after the game.
“We know this situation is not all about football, there are a lot more important things than us. We try to put a smile on the faces.
“When you see the emotion that came out after this goal, it is what everyone needed today. We are very privileged to do our job, a lot of people in the world are feeling a lot worse than us.
“We are just try to do our job, be professional and give them a good feeling.”
🗣️ "We all have to stand together in these times!"
