He is also converting 57.2% of his NP big chances. This puts him above the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Ciro Immobile, Robert Lewandowski, Harry Kane, Sergio Agüero, Karim Benzema, Mauro Icardi and Lionel Messi in terms of his conversion rate of big chances that come his way.

Havertz’s numbers aren’t bad – they merely act as a means to demonstrate just how unbelievable Werner has been for this entire season. Most of Havertz’s goal involvements have come since the winter break.
