CHELSEA new-boy Kai Havertz hasn’t enjoyed the best start to life in England.
Frank Lampard has struggled to figure it out his best position it seems, with the German, 21, managing just one goal and two assists in his first 15 Premier League games.
The most-valuable Premier League XI, according to Transfermarkt

However, Havertz‘s potential is plain to see and the former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder makes the top-flight’s most-valuable XI.
The former Bundesliga star keeps out the likes of Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante and Fabinho to break into the team.
According to Transfermarkt, Havertz is worth a staggering £72.9million – roughly what Chelsea paid for him in the summer.
But he is by no means the most-valuable player in the Premier League – not by a long shot.

In fact, the front-three alone are worth a combined £324m.
Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah – along with Tottenham star Harry Kane – are valued at £108m apiece.
Their outrageous price-tags keep the likes of Son Heung-min, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford out of the team.
Kevin De Bruyne is the only other player rated at over £100m in the Premier League.

The Manchester City ace – joint-level with the front-three at £108m – joins Havertz and Bruno Fernandes a star-studded midfield trio.
Red-hot Manchester United star Fernandes joined the Old Trafford club for £50m just under a year ago, but is now worth £81m.
In defence, reigning champions Liverpool steal the show, boasting THREE of the back-four.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is the Premier League’s most-valuable defender, rated at £99m.
The right-back joins pals Virgil van Dijk (£72m) and Andrew Robertson (£67.5m) in defence.
Man City duo Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias are both worth £54m.

In goal, Liverpool stopper Alisson keeps fellow Brazilian Ederson out of the line-up.
The Reds No1 is considered to be worth more than £20m more than his compatriot at £72m compared to £50.4m.
Along with Ederson and one of Dias and Laporte, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£36m), Harry Maguire (£36m) and Ben Chilwell (£45m) would make the second string.
The second XI’s midfield would be made up of Paul Pogba (£58.5m), Rodri (£57.6m) and Fabinho (£54m).
Sterling (£99m) and Son (£81m) would be joined by Roberto Firmino (£64.8m) in attack.
