- Cesc Fabregas has now hailed the impact of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner at Chelsea since their arrival, tipping them to help make the Blues "a powerful" force this season
- Ziyech and Werner are among an array of players Chelsea signed in the summer
- The two have been in fine form in recent weeks, helping the Blues win four matches on the bounce before the international break
Cesc Fabregas has backed Chelsea's summer signings Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner to help the club reach higher heights this season.
The two stars have formed part of Frank Lampard's new-look Chelsea following a summer spree that saw the club spend over £200million to recruit new players.
Fortunately for the two, they have hit the ground running, with Werner scoring seven goals in seven appearances so far this season.
Ziyech, on the other hand had a somewhat delayed start to the campaign following an injury sustained during a pre-season friendly clash.
However, he has been in fine form since his return from injury, playing an integral part in Chelsea's fine run of results that saw them win four matches on the bounce before the international break.
The Moroccan recently became the first player since Diego Costa to net in his first two appearances for the west London side.
He also had a brace of assists as the Stamford Bridge dwellers whitewashed Sheffield United last weekend.
And when asked about the winger's impact, Fabregas admitted the ex-Ajax star has been influential in Chelsea's spectacular form.
The Spaniard underscored Ziyech's good "vision" while on the pitch, adding it is what sets him apart from the rest.
"I think he’s (Ziyech) one of these players that makes things happen. Things that, when the defenders or the centre-backs don’t expect you to make that pass and you catch them sleeping," Fabregas told 90min according to Metro UK.
"And you have someone like Timo Werner making great runs in behind and I think this is where Chelsea could be so powerful this year," the ex-Arsenal midfielder added.
Chelsea are scheduled to take on Newcastle United on Saturday, November 21, at St. James Park Stadium.
The Blues currently occupy fifth place on the standings with 15 points from eight rounds of matches.
