Chelsea have done well in the transfer market, as the Blues have gone on to strengthen the team massively.

The signings of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz have shown the intent of the Chelsea board this season.

Former Chelsea star Pat Nevin has hailed the new signings, and he admits the thought of Christian Pulisic playing along with Kai Havertz and Timo Werner is a scary one, although he still has doubts over the team’s defence.

The former Chelsea winger told BBC Sport of the ambition in west London: “You have got the top two and Chelsea will be nipping at their heels.

“It is not just the fact they have spent money, it is the way they have done it – having Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to go with Christian Pulisic is kind of scary, but probably more for the next three or four seasons as opposed to this one because they will need to settle in.

“So, they are looking good. Everyone knows their problem has been defensively, and the centre-back position might still be one.

“A lot of people say goalkeeper is as well – and it may be – but I don’t think it is the reason they conceded so many goals last season; that was a wider defensive issue.

“I have a feeling they may concede just as many this season, but will score a hell of a lot more.”
