Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has revealed his thoughts on the Stamford Bridge club’s new duo, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, saying that he is not particularly shocked that the pair have had a sensational impact since arriving in west London in the summer, as reported by the Daily Star.
Fabregas, who previously played for Arsenal, has made a significant difference to Chelsea’s playing style since his return to the Premier League, creating chance after chance for his teammates to plunder from.
Costa has been one of the prime beneficiaries of Fabregas’s service, and the Spain international has stormed to the top of the league’s goalscoring charts.
The Brazil-born player has already scored nine goals for the Blues, and aided them significantly in their rise to the top of the table.
Both players have played a key role in Chelsea’s sensational start, which has seen them go into the second international break without losing a single game.
Lampard is not surprised, saying: “I’ve watched their games from afar and we’ve played against them.
“And we watched Diego Costa before we played Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-final last year.
“We watched the video and we probably could have sat there for about three hours and watched his running and goals and everything he was doing.
“I thought he was some player and Chelsea have signed that player.”
