Frank Lampard talks Sky Sports through Chelsea’s new signings, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, he said: 

“We must give them time. They are really talented lads and have shown they are great characters and shown they are good teammates already. 

“I expect their quality to come through but I don’t want people to expect loads tonight. Quietly, I sort of do… 

“The fact we do have some new players in the squad means we do have to work. I’d like to see that the steps we have made this week have hit home. It’s a very interesting one for us.”
