Today, Oriol Romeu and Romelu Lukaku spoke for the first time in public about their moves to Stamford Bridge and both are keen to point out, they want to work hard to earn the right to take their place among "the great players" we have at our club.

First up on the website is Oriol Romeu who many are touting for a number of games this season in a Chelsea shirt. He spoke of the move and his interest in Chelsea.

He said:
'This is one of the best clubs in the world, the coach expressed an interest in me and I thought it would be a wise choice to take advantage of being part of such a huge club.

I have been interested in this club for a while now. I understand there are a lot of high-level footballers here but my aim is to keep improving and learn from the other footballers around me and work hard as part of this team.

I am just going to make the most of the experience and take advantage of all the opportunities that arrive. I am going to work hard in training and give it my all, and earn whatever opportunity arises to play in the first team. I am not setting myself important long-term goals, I'm just going to give it my all during every training session.'

Next up Lukaku who as we all know has supported Chelsea since the age of 10. He too is keen to point out that he has come here to learn and work hard. He said:
'To be compared with Didier is a very big honour to me, Every time I spend time with him we talk and I sit next to him in the dressing room. I listen all the time because he gives advice and, also with Nico and Fernando it is the same, so I am very happy to have world-class strikers around me.

I am not here to replace him, just to play for Chelsea and I hope he will stay as long as possible so I can play with him and continue learning from him. He is a world-class striker.

When we do some finishing exercises after training he said to focus as long as possible when you hit the ball, until the last minute. [These are] very small things but very efficient.

The English Premier League is the biggest competition in the world so it will not be as easy as Belgium, but first of all I want to learn from the players that are here and after that I want to show to the coach that whenever he needs me I am ready. First of all I want to train and be as fit as possible.

Here you train at a very high level and make much more effort than in Belgium. I am very aware of that. I'm very proud to be here. I worked for a long time to come at this level and to be here makes me very proud.

At my young age there is still very far to go, and after one week I am very focused to be better. To train with these guys is important, and to listen to the experience they had in the past is also very important and I am very happy about that."
You have to say that these comments from both of these youngsters are good to hear because they portray the same message about working hard. Both of them speak of the players around them, the fact that they aren't here to replace people but to learn from them.

You'd imagine that Romeu would feature this season alot more than Lukaku because of the injury to Micheal Essien. Mikel needs cover and maybe just maybe, Romeu will be given HIS chance sooner rather than later.

Imagine being Lukaku though these days at training. They say you can learn alot from experienced players but to be able to watch and listen to the likes of Drogba, Anelka and Fernando Torres, arguably three of the best strikers in the world, has to be amazing.

Welcome to Chelsea the both of you!.
