Ashley Cole revealed Ben Chilwell asked for his advice on how to hit the ground running ahead of sealing his £50million Chelsea transfer.

Cole, the former Blues and Arsenal full-back, rates Chelsea’s new left-back highly and was impressed by his desire to learn ahead of taking a step up from playing for Leicester.

Chilwell has made an impressive start to life at Stamford Bridge. He has already scored two goals and provided two assists in his first five Premier League starts.

On top of those attacking contributions, Cole thinks he has significantly improved Frank Lampard’s side defensively.

And he believes Chilwell has followed his advice after asking ‘what do I have to do’ in order to hit the ground running.

‘I think coming into a young team probably helped him, but from minute one, he was hungry to prove that he was good enough,’ Cole told Sky Sports.

‘That’s what he said to me, that he wants to come here, hit the ground running, ‘what do I have to do?’

‘I said: “Listen, just keep working hard and want to play for the club, want to win,” and straight away, he’s come in and done that.

‘I think Chelsea look defensively better with him. Again, they have that better balance.

‘I think he can handle the ball in every area – defensively, in the middle-third, he can deal with it and of course, attacking-wise, he can cross, he can shoot, he can combine. He’s got it all.’

Chilwell was forced off in England’s 2-0 defeat to Belgium on Sunday night.

Lampard will now face a nervous wait over whether he’s fit for their next Premier League clash with Newcastle on Saturday.
