He’s getting some really exciting players added to his team. He’ll be delighted.“They’re players that fans are going to want to watch. So I don’t think it makes Frank’s life harder.“If you’re manager of any of the big six clubs in England, there’s going to be huge pressure anyway.“It was the same last season – just because they’ve signed some great players, it doesn’t mean there’ll be any more pressure than last year.”Chelsea youngsters should ’embrace the challenge’Chelsea’s transfer ban meant the club’s young players were given a chance by boss Lampard last season.The likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham now face major competition for places.But Crouch, whose career included a spell at QPR, believes Chelsea’s homegrown players should be pleased about the new additions.The likes of Mount faces a battle for a place“For the young players at Chelsea, it should be good news,” he said.“I always loved it when someone big walked through the door, because I wanted to be playing with the best players – and Chelsea have signed some of the best in Europe this summer.“You might look at it and think ‘oh, I might not get a game now’. But that’s a defeatist attitude.“You’ve got to step up and embrace the challenge.“You have to work on your own game, improve, and make sure you’re in the team.” See also:Injured James replaced by Lamptey in England Under-21 squadWerner convinced Chelsea can reach ‘new level’The three signings John Terry believes transformed ChelseaChelsea complete signing of Havertz for £71mLeverkusen want Sarr on loan as Havertz deal gets closercenter_img Peter Crouch believes Chelsea will light up the Premier League this season with their new signings.The Blues have added major attacking options to their squad, bringing in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech – with Kai Havertz likely to join them at Stamford Bridge.last_img
