Frank Lampard is convinced about the quality of Chelsea‘s summer signings.

Oscar, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden and Thorgan Hazard and Marko Marin have all arrived since the end of last season.

“This year maybe we are slightly different because we have more new young players coming in so there might not be the settled togetherness that we had on the pitch at that side because we had been together a long time but there is an excitement about our team as well and that’s probably the main difference,” Lampard told chelseafc.com.

“Everyone is trying to impress, and you never lose that in pre-season, there’s not one manager I’ve met yet who will close the door on any player. We are all playing for our season at this stage trying to show Robbie that we are fit and ready regardless of last year. We have to perform at a high level to stay in the team because of the quality of the squad we have.”

The Wales winger made a goalscoring return for Tottenham on the club’s US tour despite declaring himself unfit for Olympic duty.

After leading her team to victory over New Zealand in GB women’s Olympic debut, captain Stoney, of Lincoln Ladies, said: “I don’t understand it — he wouldn’t want to miss this.

“We’ve been in close contact with the guys and they’re as overwhelmed by this as we are. They’re amazed and ecstatic as well.

“Don’t think just because they’re pros they’re not (ecstatic) because, speaking to them, they really are.

“It was a dream come true today. You have so many ups and downs in your career and you have to fight so many obstacles, especially as a female playing football. Nobody’s had it easy. You don’t get to the top by taking it easy.”

Advisers at the club are reassessing the plan to list the company’s shares after another dismal week in the eurozone, causing the markets to slide.
