Cape Town - Branislav Ivanovic has warned Chelsea's Premier League rivals that the current league leaders will get even better as the season goes on.

The Blues have made a flying start to the 2014/15 campaign, winning six and drawing one of their opening seven games to sit atop the standings.

And Ivanovic believes Jose Mourinho's side could improve even more as off-season signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas fully adapt to their new surroundings.

"It is really amazing how quickly the new players have adapted," the Serbia international told Chelsea's official magazine.

"You could see straight from the first day how they work, how well they do their jobs, and that it is normal for them to play this way. That is why they are here and we are all very happy about that.

"As this group stays together for a long time, we will get better and better - we know each other's games, we know the movement of each other, and this gives us the opportunity to play more easily in games."

Chelsea next face a trip to Crystal Palace as they look to continue their good form after yet another international break.
