The Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo has said that he is extremely impressed by the quality shown by the new signings of the club in the summer – Eden Hazard and Oscar. The club are managed to secure the services of the 21-year-old Belgian international Eden Hazard of £ 32 million, while the Brazilian international Oscar arrived for £ 25 million. They are expected to vastly improve the quality of play at the club, which has become stale in the last few years. The club has spent a total of £ 66 million in rejuvenating the club.
So far, it seems to have had a desire effect after the club managed a 2-0 win over Wigan on the opening day of the season. Eden Hazard made his full debut for the club in the league, while Oscar came on as a substitute in the match. Eden Hazard was responsible for both the goals scored by the club in the match. Speaking after the match, the Chelsea manager said that he is extremely impressed by the quality shown by the two players and is confident that they can be hugely successful at the club. Chelsea are expected to implement a passing style of football in this season due to the presence of these players.
“The new signings have certainly impressed and also the players we already had here were fantastic and I’m very pleased with the performance tonight. Hazard certainly had an impact on our team, and with Juan Mata as well he linked up very well. He is finding his feet very quickly. [Ivanovic] has got two goals now in two games and it’s all about our defensive work. I thought he was absolutely fantastic tonight,” said the Chelsea manager after the 2-0 win over Wigan. Chelsea already have a three-point advantage over Manchester United.
