Lampard excited about new Chelsea pals Oscar, Hazard and Marin July 27, 2012, 3:05 pm

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has welcomed his three new teammates.

Marko Marin, Eden Hazard and Oscar are all set to join Lampard in the Blues midfield this season.

"My first impressions of Hazard are very good," Lampard told "You can see he is a natural in training with his touch, his awareness, his speed and the first time I saw him play in Seattle I could see he is player with a lot of natural ability. There are signs he can be a big player in Chelsea history if he wants to be.

"Marin is very enjoyable to play with. I have only played with him once or twice and he picks up great positions on the pitch and is very sharp. He is the kind of creative player we want at Chelsea to excite the fans.

"And all the reports I have heard of Oscar are very good too and hopefully he can come and adapt to the English game very quickly. We have a few midfielders now who can play in areas where we can hurt the other teams, we have Juan Mata to come back as well, so the future looks good for us."
