Chelsea have been on a spending spree this summer, as Frank Lampard is building a squad that’s capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Chelsea have followed deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, with recent deals for Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva, and a deal for Kai Havertz is expected soon too.

Many are wondering how the Chelsea team will turn out, with the marquee signings already made, and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin, is looking forward to see Blues new left-back Ben Chilwell form a stunning relationship with star player Christian Pulisic.

Nevin said: “At Chelsea will Ben Chilwell have an intelligent, skilful, pacy winger to work with who has a superb football brain?

“One who has vision, can see a pass and crucially knows when to vacate the space for his mate hammering down the line on that left-hand side?

“A player who on top of that is selfless and keen to build a partnership out there with one-twos, dummies and the ability to draw defenders to make space?

“I may well have given something close to a perfect description of Christian Pulisic just there. That could be one extraordinary partnership if they click.

“We have others who can play out there of course and a Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech or Mason Mount linking up with Chilwell would be also be chilling concept for most Premier League defences.”
