LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 09: Frank Lampard, Manager of Chelsea gives his team instructions during the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on November 09, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.
Whilst the Blues have had a terrific transfer window, there are still question marks over how the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech will gel together and fare in the Premier League.
Chelsea finished fourth last season, 33 points off champions Liverpool, and their outlay has ramped up expectations with some considering they should now be challenging for the title.
"That relationship will be something that I will certainly promote between them, giving them the freedom to work together", he said.
The news of these injuries won't necessarily have come as a surprise to Lampard and co, with left-back Chilwell still recovering from the heel problem that kept him out of the Foxes lineup in the latter stages of last season. And that comes with the territory of this job. I don't want to talk about statements.
Lampard is excited about the new arrivals but has called for caution as he believes they need to work hard to get them settled.
Chelsea have been very active in the transfer market and have spent heavily ahead of the new season. "Fikayo trained with us today and he's in contention for the Brighton game", he added.
Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr, who will be loaned out, have joined on free and the signings may not stop there with further interest in goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
Chilwell signed for the club while recovering from an heel injury sustained during Leicester's win over Crystal Palace on July 4th, while Ziyech took a knock during a pre-season friendly against Brighton and Hove Albion.
"Thiago Silva is now in London but not training with us until the weekend so I doubt very much if he'll be involved at Brighton", said Lampard.
