I think there are a quite lot of players better than Martinelli. Luis Diaz is one. I just don't know if they'd score as many as he did last year, though Martinelli isn't exactly replicating that form. I am not suprised we tried to sign Mudryk/Neto - we need another top quality player in that position because Martinelli is not reliable.
Rodrygo. Real Madrid will be open to sell when mbappe joins

Disagree with all three mentioned, they are inferior to Martinelli for me, and possibly not similar enough in style either.
I wasn't shouting Mudryk/Neto. They are more in reference to the fact that the club have actively tried to sign expensive players who would take game time away from Martinelli.

Thought he had a really good game and is more difficult to play against than Jesus for physical teams.

One really bad miss though - in fairness, I have seen Ødegaard, Trossard, Martinelli and Jesus miss way more (maybe someone could let us know what Kai’s conversion rate is actually?) but I believe only Saka has scored more PL goals than Havertz?

Goal and an assist. Not sure if people are expecting more from him but I’m happy with that type of output.

Another good performance as CF seem more natural position for him he should scored another just strange miss.

Would be the ideal CF if we had an Mbappe or Salah type on the wing. We just don't, so we'll need him to be more ruthless, which I don't think he has in him. Still, top quality performance tonight. We've looked at our fluid best with him CF this season

Hopefully Arteta will continue to play Havertz in a position he is more familiar with from now on, especially in Europe.

Like I said the only hope is rotational CF position and playing as a SS/Attacking mid behind an actual striker (only option we have yet to try).

But Left 8 Havertz aint cutting it out.

Stick with Havertz as a 9 till the end of the season and play Jesus on the wings/rotational striker.

He played well today, we had box presence something we lacked with Trossard.

If only he get his Bundesliga day composure back he may aswell be the Striker we need.

Unfortunately he won't... he has grown 2-3 inches since Leverkusen days, and his movement and posture are look so different right now.
I understand the technical degradation that brings and he isn't going to go past players like he used too. But most of his finishing issues are related to composure, that can be fixed I guess. He is only 24.

Yes, his height may have affected his reactions and smoothness a bit but I think it's anxiety that limits him in his finishing.

Can't deny he is causing teams a lot of trouble with his movement and physicality, if he can become clinical he would be a beast of a player

I'm pleased for him and us with his goal and overall play. He should have scored early in the second half but he's gelled well now and looks part of the team. He just needs to be more determined in front of goal.
