3. Kai Havertz has... arrived?

The German is smack bang in goal scoring form. After so many (myself included) were critical of Havertz's output early on, I can honestly say I am happy to be wrong (for now).

Kai threw his weight around in the box and used his height to his advantage. He has made a habit of arriving late in the box and did so for Arsenal's third goal, which was well taken.

Playing him closer to the opposition box seems to have unlocked Havertz's ability and Arteta deserves credit. Arsenal, right now, seem to be getting the best version of the German andit now marks three goals in his last four games.

Has Havertz finally arrived? It sure looks that way.
