How Enzo and Havertz's chemistry has helped Chelsea's resurgence.

There's no doubt about the fact that Chelsea have looked more like a disjointed team for the larger part of the ongoing football season. This happened as a result of the wholesale changes in terms of players and technical personnel. But the last three games have been promising as the team is beginning to bond again.

The new-found chemistry between Enzo Fernández and Kai Havertz has definitely played a crucial role in the team's recent resurgence. Enzo's assist for Havertz's sublime finish against Leicester City was just the epitome of the duo's technical compatibility. The Leicester back line couldn't help but watch in awe.

Chelsea's midfield was culpable for too many sideways passes, delaying the flow of attack and giving the opponents the time to recover, but the arrival of Enzo seems to have changed that. The Argentine derives so much joy in picking those accurate vertical passes. This made the team play more direct and it afforded Havertz enough time and space to operate effectively.

Potter's style of play from day one was based on quick transition from defense to attack with the help of the midfielders, but this was hindered by the short and sideways passes of Jorginho and co. That has changed recently, with Enzo releasing the passes quick enough and Havertz dropping deep to receive.

This partnership could be crucial to Chelsea's title challenge in the near future, just like we've seen With Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa in the past. Finding Costa was so effortless for Fabregas and the team thrived on this as Chelsea cruised to the league title in 2014/15.

Up next for Graham Potter's men is Everton on Saturday. Due to the Toffees' recent run of form, it is expected that Chelsea get another win at Stamford Bridge. This is also another chance for Potter to prove he is the right man for the job and finally silence his critics.
