The secret behind Kai Havertz’s improved form revealed by Mikel Arteta

Arsenal Manager Arteta Says Kai Havertz’s ‘Growing Confidence’ Key to Improved Form

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has spoken out about the recent resurgence of Kai Havertz, praising the German’s ‘growing confidence’ as integral to his improved form on the pitch. The Gunners shelled out a staggering £65m to secure the services of the German international from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but Havertz initially struggled to find his form in north London.

After a rocky start, Havertz seems to have found his feet in recent weeks, netting four goals in the last month of club action. Arteta, speaking to the press following Arsenal’s vital win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, attributed Havertz’s upturn in performances to his regained confidence, saying: “His confidence is growing and he feels more secure on the field. The fact he’s scored one helped to score the second one. It’s four in seven games now and he should have scored a header today as well in a really good position.”

The manager further praised Havertz’s intelligence and defensive work, describing his overall performances as ‘top’ and ‘really good’. Arteta was quick to commend his team for their outstanding performance, hailing their win over Brighton as a significant achievement. “Outstanding, incredible. Big compliment to the team and to the players. I think we had an incredible performance against a top team,” Arteta said. “We fully deserved to win the game. I have to praise them because I know how difficult it is and what Brighton do to teams. We didn’t allow that to happen, so I’m super happy.”

Looking ahead, Arteta expressed his hope for Arsenal to continue their impressive run of form as they prepare to face title rivals Liverpool at Anfield next Saturday.

If Havertz can maintain his newfound confidence and strong performances, Arsenal will undoubtedly be in contention for success in the upcoming fixtures. As the Gunners aim to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League and push on in other competitions, Havertz’s form could prove to be a pivotal factor in their pursuit of silverware. Arteta’s guidance and support will be crucial in ensuring that the talented 22-year-old remains on an upward trajectory, as Arsenal look to reclaim their place among English football’s elite.
