Chelsea's firepower excites former Blues winger Pat Nevin

Former Blues winger Pat Nevin claims ‘Pulisic alongside Werner & Havertz is a scary thought!’

Chelsea has been the busiest clubs in this summer transfer window and has spent in the north of £200m in this transfer window alone.

The Blues have infused a lot of money in recruiting players like Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Kai Havertz.

Pulisic who had an outstanding 2019/20 campaign for the Blues is expected to hit even greater heights this season and a three-main pairing with German internationals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner would make a ruthless attacking trio to look forward to.

The former Blues winger told BBC Sport: “You have got the top two and Chelsea will be nipping at their heels.

“It is not just the fact they have spent money, it is the way they have done it – having Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to go with Christian Pulisic is kind of scary, but probably more for the next three or four seasons as opposed to this one because they will need to settle in.

“So, they are looking good. Everyone knows their problem has been defensively, and the centre-back position might still be one.

“A lot of people say goalkeeper is as well – and it may be – but I don’t think it is the reason they conceded so many goals last season; that was a wider defensive issue.

“I have a feeling they may concede just as many this season but will score a hell of a lot more.”

Former Chelsea player Ruud Gullit also said: “It’s clear Chelsea are trying to break into the top two.

“They have made some good signings but that doesn’t mean anything yet. You never know how they will blend in.

“It’s the Premier League, a different league – different pace, different everything. It’s not easy.”
