Chelsea have been given a B+ for our season so far under Frank Lampard.

Explaining Chelsea’s grade, Sky Sports wrote: “A slight markdown for their slowish start to the season shouldn’t overshadow what has been an excellent opening 10 games for Frank Lampard’s young side.

“His young charges have stepped up to the plate, with academy stars Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori impressing, but old heads who came in for criticism last year – namely Jorginho and Willian – have improved too.

“Abraham, in particular, has caught the eye, with huge question marks over his Premier League prospects – after a dismal spell with Swansea just over a season ago – already long forgotten thanks to his eight-goal Premier League haul.

“In August, a top-six finish would have seemed a good season for a team without their best player in the departed Eden Hazard and saddled by a transfer ban, but football is a fickle game and after a run of results to raise hope – as well as the belated emergence of Christian Pulisic – it may already be a disappointment if they miss out on the top four.”
