Matt Miazga: My first week at Chelsea...

Chelsea signing Matt Miazga has enjoyed his first week at Cobham.

Miazga has signed for Chelsea from New York Red Bulls.

"I really like it, it is a higher level, the ball moves much faster but yeah, it is good. All the guys are very welcoming and I am really enjoying it," he told chelseafc.com.

"My game is definitely built on winning aerial challenges and tackles. As a centre-back you have to have an aerial presence and win a lot of headers, and my job is to win duels and not let opponents score, so every time I try to get a good tackle in and make my opponent know that I am there and it is not going to be an easy time trying to go by me.

"I've been watching the Premier League since I was a young boy. Everyone knows the league is very competitive and any team can beat any team. Everyone is going all out to win their games so it is a very exciting league and I look forward to it."
