Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has had his say about his new teammates Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech who have now officially joined the club.
There has been no official photo of the pair at Stamford Bridge or Cobham training centre, but Werner and Ziyech are technically Chelsea players as from now.
Chelsea may have given the two a few days off before joining the team, especially Werner who just finished the Bundesliga season with RB Leipzig last week.
Christensen who had a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach said he has faced Werner before and he knows what to expect from the Germany international.
The centre-back told Sky Sport: “I played against Werner quite a few times when I was in Germany so I know what he can do and what sort of player he is.
“I haven’t played against Ziyech but I’ve seen him a lot and I think they can both bring good things to the club. We’re all excited to see what they can bring.”
About the idea that Chelsea could challenge Liverpool for the title next season, Christensen said: “We are in a process but I think we are way ahead of time.
“We have a good balance between experienced people and young, exciting talent and we’re all hungry to reach the same goals.”
Although the Chelsea fans certainly cannot wait for the start of next season, this season’s battles for Champions League spots are not over yet and can really shift how next term looks for Chelsea.
The west London outfit currently occupy the fourth-place and a win at West Ham will restore a five-point gap to fifth-placed Manchester United and sixth-placed Wolverhampton.
