Chelsea have been the surprise package of the year let alone the season. For a team that was riddled with lingering issues since Maurizio Sarri took over, they have come a long way in banishing the memories of a few months ago. Frank Lampard has overseen an unlikely change in such a short space of time with Chelsea emerging as surprise contenders for a top-four position. Not only has he overseen impressive wins away to Ajax and grinding out victories against the likes of Newcastle and Burnley.
However, the biggest take away from this has been Lampard’s use of Chelsea’s youth – Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, and Reece James have all come in and performed exceptionally well. Each one of them has established themselves as regular first-team members and look like they belong in the Premier League. The famous Chelsea loan system is finally reaping its rewards.
