    Havertz is ready for a place in the XI – Silvestre

    Former Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre has said that Kai Havertz is a ready to take his place in Arsenal's starting XI.

    The midfielder endured a tricky start after joining the club for £65million from Chelsea but his form has picked up of late.

    And Silvestre told BettingExpert: "I think the fact that the spotlight is not on Kai Havertz anymore, I think he had time to digest the move and play with his new teammates. Coming from the bench, you have less pressure, you can read the game from the bench and be impactful.”

    “He’s a clever player. I think it’s a good position for him to be at the moment and maybe to go back to the starting XI soon.”

    Mikael Silvestre has praised the form of Arsenal full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu but says going forward Oleksandr Zinchenko is the superior option.

    He told Betting Expert: "Tomiyasu is a very good alternative to Zinchenko because you know what you’re going to get with Zinchenko. He’s a steady defender who does the basics simply and well.

    “He understands the game so his positioning is excellent. Long term Zinchenko is ahead of him because of what he brings offensively and Arsenal are an attacking team.”

    "They had weaknesses there [in defence] and last year [Hugo] Lloris didn’t have the best of seasons as well.

    "And overall, the movement from Son [Heung-min] into the middle, looks very good."
