With one win, one defeat and one draw in three Premier League games so far, Chelsea’s start to the new season hasn’t been very good, but new Blues signing Ben Chilwell has admitted that the team will soon get into top gear.
Chilwell has hailed the quality of the team, especially the new signings that were brought in, and believes that the team will get better when the chemistry starts to form.
Chilwell said: “With the players we have and the players that have been brought in, as well as the coaching staff, it’s a good recipe for things that can happen this season.
“We’re working a lot on the training pitch defensively in terms of conceding less goals from set-pieces and open play.
“We’re working hard on that and hopefully when we build that team chemistry a bit more over the next few weeks and everyone starts training more and getting back to match fitness, it should start to gel nicely.”
Chilwell also admitted that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard played a huge role in bringing him to the club, and has hailed the tactical smartness of the manager.
“I spoke to the manager and straight away got that feeling that you want to play for him and you want to win for him,” he added.
“He won a lot of silverware here and I think it’s important to play for a manager that loves the club I’m joining and knows what it takes to win trophies here.
“That has been a big reason why a lot of the players have joined. His man-management seems top, even the boys who aren’t playing will say that as well, and tactically he’s very good. He just seems like a really good guy who you want to do well for and that was the main reason I wanted to come.”
