Mason Mount says the arrivals of Mykhailo Mudryk and the other new signings make it a thrilling time to be involved with Chelsea.
Speaking to the club media, Mount lauded the January recruits for providing an extra level of positivity to the team.
Graham Potter’s side have certainly benefited from a few of the fresh faces to have landed at Cobham this month.
Joao Felix’s fine display at Fulham a few weeks ago disappointingly ended with a red card just before the hour mark.
Aside from the sending off, the Portugal international was a class above at Craven Cottage and one Chelsea could rely on for years to come.
Benoit Badiashile has hardly put a foot wrong since moving from Monaco, keeping two clean sheets in successive Premier League starts.
Badiashile kept Liverpool at bay on Saturday, whilst Mudryk nearly broke the deadlock down the other end.
Mykhailo Mudryk has the magic touch for Chelsea
The 22-year-old stepped onto the Anfield surface for his Chelsea debut 10 minutes into the second-half.
He looked at home in the often-testing circumstances for opposition players.
Had he converted the chance that instead rippled the side-netting, his first appearance would’ve gone down in the history books.
But it was still a bright afternoon for the youthful Ukrainian, who seemed comfortable in blue, despite only being on board for just under a week.
This might come down to the Mudryk has been integrated into the squad by those already stationed at Cobham.
“Even though I’m still young, I’m one of the more experienced ones in the group,” said Mount, who used to be the new boy on the block.
“So it’s just making them feel welcome, making them feel confident. You can see that when they come on the pitch, like Mudryk on Saturday.
“He’s very confident and what’s to show what he can do, along with the other players that we’ve got. So it’s exciting times.”
If Potter can somehow get Mudryk, Felix and Noni Madueke into one XI, Chelsea could find themselves flying up the table before too long.
