Former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle believes Frank Lampard’s Chelsea will win the Premier League title in two years time.

Lampard has surprised many with his start as Chelsea manager with the Blues sitting third in the table, level on points with second-placed Leicester and above back-to-back champions Manchester City by a point.

Some pundits, including former Blues midfielder Joe Cole, believe Chelsea are in the title race this season but Hoddle doesn’t see that happening this season.

“They’re a very exciting team to watch,” Hoddle told Premier League Productions.

“I think you’re right, I don’t know whether those youngsters would have had a chance without the [transfer] embargo, but they’ve been given a chance.

“The one key thing is, when you put youngsters in they’ve got to be good enough, and these guys are good enough.

“There’s five of them there that I think in two years time they’re going to be ready to win the league.

“I really do feel that there’s a foundation, building blocks there to really go on and become something special.”
