Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has backed the new players at Chelsea to perform and massively improve the team.

Chelsea have been able to field only two (Werner and Havertz) of the six new signings, with Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell to add to the number tomorrow.

Werner is already looking great while Havertz is still finding his feet but Cole is adamant their qualities will surely come through.

“How much quality they have there is frightening and exciting at the same time,” Cole told Sky Sports, as quoted by Tribal Football.

“Yes, we’ve added loads of quality into the team. With Thiago Silva, we’ve added experience as well.

“We’re going to have to be patient at times to wait for them to gel. It’s definitely looking way more exciting than it was towards the late stage of last season.

“Havertz is a very, very high-quality player. It was his first game against Brighton where he had just two days of training with the team, so it’s tough,” added Cole.

“He’s just finding his feet, getting into the team, understanding the way Frank (Lampard) wants to play, but we’re definitely going to see great things from this guy because he’s such a great talent.”
