Chelsea are having a beautiful season as youngsters from the club are doing really well under new boss Frank Lampard.

The likes of Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham are all in the Chelsea first eleven, while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James are pushing to get into the team.

Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has hailed how Chelsea youngsters are shining in the team and revealed how different it was in his days when Chelsea were buying all the big names. According to Johnson, it’s a different era now at Stamford Bridge as players who weren’t in the limelight are now making waves.

He told Express Sport: “When I was there it was totally different, it was when Roman Abramovich was buying all the best players in the world, the younger players didn’t really get a look in.

“It was a totally different era, every big name came through the door but I’m pleasantly surprised to see how well the kids are doing now. They’ve had to give the kids a chance, though, because they lost their best player and the transfer situation.

“They’ve all stood up and have performed brilliantly and Chelsea had talent they probably didn’t know they had six months ago.”
