Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea players to continue to utilise the qualities of Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell in future games.

The England international impressed as the Blues beat Burnley 3-0 on Saturday.

“It’s been a really positive impact,” Lampard said when asked about the England defender.

“An important part of how I want us to play is involving our full-backs in an offensive sense and I’m not taking anything away from him defensively.

“I thought him and Reece [James] today perfectly found their moments to get involved and join in in high areas of the pitch, perfectly covered their positions to get ready for second balls with what was coming at us today.

“Part of the reason for bringing Chilly to the club was to bring that. He covers a lot of high intensity, distance in games, where he’s joining high up the pitch.

“We haven’t utilised it enough in our last two or three performances, I’ve got to say. It’s something we spoke about a lot yesterday and I worked on that with the team and we saw a little bit of that today.”
