Chelsea youngsters like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori have become important members of the first team this season and former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet is happy with the development.

According to Poyet, opportunities like this haven’t happened at Chelsea for 15 years.

Poyet is hopeful the Chelsea youngsters getting their chance under Frank Lampard don’t let it get into their heads.

“I’m pleased for all of them that have accepted the challenge,” Poyet told Goal.

“Opportunities like this haven’t happened at Chelsea for 15 years. We always had good players coming up – even [Romelu] Lukaku was playing in the reserves.

“I went to see him when he was 17 but Chelsea made it so that he had to leave to have a career. Most young players were coming in and then going out on loan. This group has the opportunity but it doesn’t mean they’ll make it.

“I hope they stay grounded.”
