Bennett is convinced the squad's quality has jumped a level.
"We've brought Leroy (Fer) and Ricky (van Wolfswinkel) in and it probably helps them they are from the same country and can speak the same language. Nathan (Redmond) is a lively lad and he has integrated really well. It's great to have the new lads on the board and have that competition. It's also good that we can really get to spend so much time in each other's company. You don't go home after training and you all mix together."
