Blues legend Gus Poyet has hailed the incredible job Frank Lampard has done so far at Chelsea.

The former Chelsea midfielder has revealed that he was impressed with the work Lampard did last season with Chelsea youngsters.

Lampard guided Chelsea to a fourth place finish last season despite the transfer ban, but this season, the stakes have been raised higher, having spent over £200m in the transfer market.

Poyet believes Lampard loves this pressure and he’d do well with the current squad, despite the pressure to succeed.

“I like what Frank did last season without the chance to sign players,” Poyet told Daily Mail.

“He used young players who go through these adrenaline periods of doing brilliantly and then not so well.

“Expectations have changed now because Chelsea spent big money in the summer. Frank has embraced that, no more transition period.

“Is it more pressure? Give me pressure with better players any day. I’d always prefer a chairman who spends £200 million.”
