    Paul Robinson names Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s two best signings

    Paul Robinson has hailed Timo Werner and Edouard Mendy as Chelsea’s two best signings from last summer and backed Frank Lampard’s side to mount a ‘serious’ title challenge this season.

    Chelsea spent more than £200million on the likes of Werner, Mendy, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell during the last transfer window.

    The Blues finished fourth in the Premier League last season but the new additions appear to have taken Chelsea to a new level, with the team currently two points off joint-leaders Tottenham and Liverpool and safely through to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

    Former England goalkeeper Robinson says Lampard recruited ‘excellently’ over the summer and says Werner and Mendy were his two best signings.

    Chelsea spent almost £50m on Germany striker Werner and £22m on goalkeeper Mendy, with both players impressing at Stamford Bridge this season.

    Robinson, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Arsenal, said: ‘I think Frank Lampard has recruited excellently in the summer.

    ‘He’s made some big decisions; especially with his goalkeeper. He wanted to change that and he’s brought in Edouard Mendy, who has kept five clean sheets in seven since coming in.

    ‘He’s been outstanding; probably one of Frank’s best signings along with Timo Werner.

    ‘Having played with Frank for England I could always see him going into management but I was surprised at how quickly the transition was.

    ‘He went to Derby and did extremely well and – probably due to circumstance at Chelsea, and because he’s Frank Lampard – he was given the opportunity.

    ‘He’s got fantastic status at Chelsea and it’s always difficult when a club legend takes over as a manager because if things don’t go well it’s a difficult situation. 

    ‘Last season was pretty much a free hit for him with the transfer embargo in place and the ability that he had to bring the youngsters into the first-team. Now he’s blended those youngsters in with world class talent that he’s been able to bring in.

    ‘That combination means, for me, they’ve got a serious opportunity this season to mount a title challenge.’
