Chelsea are in the best ever form in the Premier League as the Blues have won their last six league matches and are climbing higher up the table.

Just before the international break, Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 with the youngest ever Blues XI in the Premier League, with an average age of 24 years and 88 days.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given opportunities to youngsters in the team to progress and the Chelsea young academy graduates have all impressed. Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori have all been a key part of the squad, while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James have also contributed with good performances.

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has now admitted that he has little to help the young players as they already have a great mentality.

Asked about what he can offer youngsters such as Abraham and Mount – who are now both full England internationals – Kovacic replied: “I can help, but the young guys really have a great mentality, they don’t need too much help.

“They are doing great, they saw the pressure that is to play for Chelsea, they know the club already.

“They have been here for more than 10 years.”
