Chelsea have lost four of their last five league matches, but despite those defeats, the Blues are still in fourth position in the Premier League.

However, with Chelsea’s form dropping in recent games, Blues boss Frank Lampard is under pressure to avoid playing the youngsters that have served him well at the beginning of the season.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has pointed out that Chelsea might be far down the table if not for the influence of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.

Abraham has scored 11 league goals this season and assisted three while Mason Mount has scored 5 league goals and assisted one.

Jamie Redknapp wrote in his column for the Daily Mail: “Lampard may have already been planning to spend in January after their transfer ban was lifted but I wonder if their recent form forces his hand even more. I wonder if he will now look to bring in a bit of experience, some tried and tested reinforcements who can relieve the pressure on Mount and Abraham.

“Those two have shown themselves as Chelsea’s saviours time and time again this season. Where would that club be now without those two? Not fourth, I can tell you that.

“Let’s not forget the contribution of 21-year-old Fikayo Tomori, either, or the fact this is 21-year-old Christian Pulisic’s first season in England. So yes, Chelsea are in a rocky situation but these young guys need help. They need refreshing. Mount and Abraham cannot be expected to carry a club between them.”
