Despite being slapped with a transfer ban at the beginning of the season and losing arguably their best player, Eden Hazard, to Real Madrid, Chelsea under Frank Lampard are looking very promising indeed.
With the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori all getting their opportunities in the first team, the former of whom currently tops the score charts, youthful exuberance is finally being wielded to its full potential at Stamford Bridge.
After firing a blank at Manchester United at the beginning of the season, only Liverpool (20) and Manchester City (27) have scored more than Lampard’s exciting Chelsea side, who currently sit on 18.
Indeed, the Blues under their fledgling manager command an exciting brand of football that all neutrals can get behind, not to mention legends of the English game like John Terry, Ian Wright and Michael Owen (not so much Jamie Redknapp, though).
The Chelsea boss posted: “Well done to our all our team yesterday. The hard work continues, Fans were incredible as always.”

Terry and Lampard won eleven major trophies together including three Premier League titles and the Champions League with the club.
