Havertz hat-trick helps Chelsea hit six, Arsenal edge out Leicester in League Cup

AFP, London :
Frank Lampard said Kai Havertz is just getting started after opening his Chelsea account with a hat-trick in a 6-0 thrashing of Barnsley, while Arsenal also booked their place in the League Cup fourth round with a 2-0 win at Leicester.
Havertz had struggled to make an impact in his first two Premier League games since sealing a reported o71 million ($94 million) move from Bayer Leverkusen as the most expensive signing of Chelsea's o200 million spending spree in the transfer market.
But the 21-year-old German was one of just three players to retain his place from Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool and Lampard's decision reaped its reward as he scored his first senior hat-trick.
"I am delighted with Kai, it was everything I wanted from him," said Lampard.
"He had no pre-season so I wanted to give him more time on the pitch with his teammates, learning how we play and press. It was a great night for Kai and it is the first of many for him."
