With the Premier League season well and truly under way, Chelsea are starting to impress in the league, with Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham being standout performers so far.
With Chelsea currently sitting 9th in the league, they are beginning to show their class, and their youngsters are performing brilliantly for Frank Lampard’s team. With one win, two draws and one loss in their first four Premier League games, it hasn’t been a stellar start to the season, but they are showing that they can compete despite their current transfer ban, and performances have been encouraging.
Mount, Abraham, Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori, amongst others, all returned from their loans this summer, and have been given a chance in the first team by Lampard, and this decision has payed off. Mount has scored two goals in his first four appearances, and has really shone in the Chelsea midfield. Abraham is currently on four goals in four games, and is really finding his scoring boots for Chelsea, which will come as a relief for Lampard, who has limited striking options. Zouma is yet to keep a clean sheet and has scored an own goal, but nevertheless, the Frenchman has played relatively well for Chelsea so far, but has made some key interception and tackles.
However, if Chelsea do want to secure a top four finish this season, they will need to win the games against the so called ‘lesser teams’, and also getting results against the top six teams.
They could also give defender Tomori a chance at centre half, who previously played under Frank Lampard while on loan at Derby last season. And with Callum Hudson-Odoi to return from injury soon, this could be a very exciting Chelsea team, and they will definitely be challenging for top four this season, especially with a very young and talented squad, and a great mix of young and experienced players.
