EPL: Ben Chilwell reacts as Chelsea sign new left-back, rates Sterling’s performance in 1-0 win at Everton



Chelsea’s left back, Ben Chilwell, has reacted to the club’s decision to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton this summer.

Cucurella is one of the few players that joined the West London side this summer and was introduced in the later part of their Premier League opener against Everton on Saturday.

Chilwell made way for Cucurella who came in and performed credibly well from the left side of the defensie.

However, Chilwell said he is unfazed by competition from the Spaniard, adding that Cucurella and the other new signings will ‘push each other’ to higher levels.

Asked about Cucurella’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, Chilwell told the club’s website, “We’re at Chelsea so there’s going to be a lot of good players here.

“Competition for places is going to be fierce and obviously we’re going to push each other the same as everyone else in the team.”

Speaking on the performances of Cucurella, Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly as they made their Chelsea debuts on Saturday, Chilwell said, “They all did really well,’ Chilwell added after Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Goodison Park.

“They impacted the game really positively so we’re very happy to have all of them.”
