Kai Havertz has confessed that Chelsea's miserable form over the winter period took its toll on his personal life.

The Blues found themselves on a run of just two wins from 15 games in all competitions, with Havertz himself scoring just one goal in his first ten Premier League outings of 2023, and it led to a toxic atmosphere around Stamford Bridge.

Boos could regularly be heard after games and things reached a concerning level when manager Graham Potter revealed he had been sent death threats over email.
