Chelsea boss Frank Lampard expects new Chelsea signing Ben Chilwell to become the best left-back in the world.

This is according to Chilwell, who insists he joined Chelsea to become the best and win trophies.

“It is a fresh challenge. I am out of my comfort zone which is something I think that will improve me,” Ben Chilwell told Chelsea’s official website.

“It’s a great team, a great club and I am looking forward to working hard here.

“I remember chatting to the gaffer at Leicester and he was really good about the whole situation. He said this would be good for my career and that if I come here and work hard, I can push on because the type of football here suits me.

“He said I could go on to be the best or one of the best in the world in my position. That’s what I want to do now that I am here. I want to win stuff and improve myself.

“Personally, I want to become one of the best in the world in my position, and it feels like, with this team, that we can win a lot over the next few years as well. When I come to the end of my career, I want to have won everything that there is to win, and I think that at this club we can do that.”

Chilwell made his Chelsea debut in the 6-0 victory over Barnsley on Wednesday, providing the assist for Olivier Giroud’s goal.
