Haverts performed a hat-trick in Chelsea’s 6-0 victory over Barnsley in the League Cup. He admitted in an interview that his first few weeks at Chelsea were very difficult, but hoped to gain more confidence after scoring three goals.
Haverts said: "I think the first two league games are very difficult for me because I didn't experience the preseason. I only participated in one week of training with the team. However, I think my condition is getting better and better. This game helps me gain more confidence. I hope to maintain the league until the weekend."
When asked whether this performance will make headlines in the newspapers in his hometown, Haverts said: "I hope so. This is a big event for me personally. Of course, the most important thing is that we won."
"I am also happy about the hat trick, but we have to usher in the next game on the weekend and we need to focus on this game."
The London Evening Standard stated that Tottenham will advance directly to the fourth round of the League Cup and face Chelsea. Haverts said: "I heard this is an important derby before and I am looking forward to this match."
