Lampard in a recent interview has said that the traces of one of the great midfielder Paul Scholes can be seen in the 18-year-old Billy Gilmour. He also supports the statement of Roy Keane on the rising star. Before the suspension of football activity due to the spread of coronavirus, the player has appeared in six games and made his debut in August. His game against the rivals Liverpool and Everton was exceptional in both FA Cup and Premier League.
His excellence in his game has earned him the praise from Roy Keane, who has said that Gilmour has the potential to be on the top line of the game. Lampard has said that he supports Keane’s statement saying that Roy is not someone who goes on praising others regularly and only gives credits of he is sure he has seen talent. He also said that Gilmour should take the praise seriously and focus more on his game. Continue reading
Chelsea legend John Terry believes the Blues should make a big-money move to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer. The west London side have been inconsistent during the backend of the 2019/2020 season under Frank Lampard and they are still holding onto the fourth spot in the standings which would guarantee them Champions League football next term.
In an interview covered by Frank Khalid on his YouTube channel, Terry spoke about the progress of young players under Lampard’s guidance and mentioned the names of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, who have proved their worth in their breakthrough seasons. He added that the Blues should seek to land the signature of Sancho, who can take the team to the next level. Continue reading
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta believes the Blues must improve on home form for the rest of the season in order to end the season on a good note. The west London outfit have been largely inconsistent at home when compared to their travels this term and that has hampered their prospects of staying clear of the chasing pack for the final Champions League spot.
At present, they have only a four-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the fourth spot and Azpilicueta has urged the team to respond strongly after the winter break, he told: “We haven’t made Stamford Bridge as solid as we would like this year. This is the best time to recover this solidity, with three big games in a row at home where we can show we are ready and able to make Stamford Bridge a tough place to come. With the fans we have had some disappointments at home altogether. When these three opportunities come we have to take them one by one, and hopefully we can build up on this. It’s key for the success of the season.” Continue reading
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has said that the Blues need to stay focused ahead of a congested period of fixtures in the Premier League. The west London giants are currently holding onto the fourth position in the standings but they don’t have much breathing space with Tottenham Hotspur just three points behind them.
This has resulted from the fact that they have picked up just three points from the previous league games and Azpilicueta wants his team to be prepared ahead of the festive schedule leading to the New Year, he told: “We have to keep our heads up. The Christmas period is always a busy time and we have some important fixtures coming up, which we have to be ready for. We have to make sure we are ready, because there is a big game coming up, a derby against Tottenham next Sunday. Now is the time to think, to see what we didn’t do well and go with everything on Sunday because we need the points.”
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that he is pleased with the club’s progress this season but he wants the team to perform much better during the forthcoming games. The west London side recently suffered a blip with two successive defeats in the Premier League but they managed to end the streak with a 2-1 triumph over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.
Following the game, Lampard was asked whether he was pleased with the club’s strong push for the top four and in response, he stated that the Blues have room for improvement, he told: “I am happy but I want more. We have had a pretty good start because most people probably expected us otherwise.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has fancied Chelsea to secure a top four finish in the Premier League this season. The west London giants have experienced a mixed run of results since the beginning of the campaign but Merson believes the Blues can qualify for the Champions League after a strong display against Liverpool, where they suffered a slender 2-1 defeat.
“I think expectations have gone up now. After that performance, you’re looking at top four. When you see what’s around, you’re looking at top four. With losing the game, it’s backfired in a way – the expectations have gone up rather than down. I’ve seen enough yesterday to say they’ll be in the mix,” he was quoted as saying on Sky Sports.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has said that he has been impressed with the chants from the supporters for Jorginho this term. The Italy international was not a favourite among the fans last season and he was deemed guilty whenever the Blues underperformed with former head coach Maurizio Sarri at the helm.
The west London giants have made a slow start to the current season with just one win from four matches but the supporters have certainly been more appreciative towards Jorginho, who has looked much comfortable with his distribution compared to the previous campaign. Speaking in a press conference, Lampard admitted that he is pleased with the reception received by the midfielder this term and believes the Italian has come up with a better drive and determination when compared to the previous campaign.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has praised the character of manager Frank Lampard, who has yet to taste success as the Blues head coach. The west London giants have started the season with successive losses to Manchester United and Liverpool in the Premier League and UEFA Super Cup respectively but they were somewhat unfortunate to come up with nothing in the latter of those games.
Speaking to Chelseafc.com, Giroud spoke about the mentality of the new manager and said that the 41-year-old’s response remains neutral irrespective of the performance from the players, he told: “He always tries to be very positive. He won’t be too tough with us when we are not doing too well, but he also won’t put us ‘over the moon’ when we are playing well. He is always trying to analyse well the situation.
Frank Lampard’s appointment as Chelsea manager has gone well so far, with the club fans optimistic about the future of the club, and the players seem to be equally looking forward to the future.
One of the major hopes of the club is that more youth players make the grade at the club and Lampard is expected to promote a number of academy players this season. One of the players that has been touted to have a good season is Mason Mount, and the England u21 midfielder was all smiles on Tuesday after signing a new five-year contract with the club.
