The struggles of Kai Havertz at Arsenal have offered a glimmer of hope to armchair fans who still want to make it pro.
The Champions League winning former Chelsea man has struggled in front of goal to say the very least since his £65million move across London. The 24-year-old has managed only one goal for the Gunners in 17 matches – and that came from the penalty spot.
Having found space from a corner early on against Sevilla at the Emirates on Wednesday evening, his header bounced harmlessly wide and X users couldn't resist sharing their own reviews.

One X user said in the comments section: "Havertz makes me believe I can still be a professional player." A rival added: "According to Arsenal they got Chelsea’s best player."
Another social media user posted: "This is the most Havertz video I’ve ever seen lol." A fourth joked: "Just play him at left back man, he's not built for this."
A fifth viewer insisted: "He will go again." As a sixth agreed: "He doesn’t need to score or assist to be noticed as a good player. Top top player he is."
Arsenal did end up taking the lead in the first-half but not through Havertz, with Leandro Trossard finishing off a team move.

Mikel Arteta was not in a good mood earlier in the week when asked a question of the playmaker's ongoing struggles to create and score goals.
The Spaniard said: "I'm not going to put it on any individual. We are a team."
Arsenal went into Wednesday's game in a good position in Group B having won two of their opening three matches on their return to the competition.

The players did however have to regain their focus after Arteta's rant following the VAR controversy during their weekend defeat at Newcastle.
His slamming of VAR was then backed up in a club statement with Anthony Gordon's goal surviving three seperate checks.
The defeat, their first of the season in the league, left the club fourth in the table and three points behind reigning champions Manchester City.
