Chelsea

player

Reece James

talked about his teammate

Hakim Ziyech

saying his “left foot is unbelievably good” and reported on their friendship. The Blues who enhanced their attack during the summer signed Ziyech from

Ajax

to become one of their best deals for the season. Among other summer deals for Lampard’s squad was the Brazilian international

Thiago Silva

.

James told

The Athletic

: “Thiago has brought a lot of experience. I have played alongside him a few times now. He has helped me a lot. You can see straight away why he has been one of the best in the world.

“He constantly talks to me throughout games, helping me in my positioning, directing me and making sure he is talking to me before, during and after games. It all adds up and improves performances.

“Further forward, there have been signs with Hakim in training. Ever since he arrived, we got on well. I knew I would be playing behind him. We clicked early and tried to build this connection in training to use this season. His left foot is just unbelievably good.”

Lampard

also talked about their summer deals and the partnership the new players have founded among them: “That was part of my thinking when Hakim Ziyech came to the club, the balance of the sides of the pitch which is very important for us.

“We knew Reece's quality last year in terms of crossing, and when you think you can have a winger in front of him that can offer different angles and combinations on that side to put ball into the box, then I think it can be a big strength of ours.”
