Former Chelsea forward Joe Cole has revealed that his former teammate Frank Lampard has made a perfect start to his time at the club. Speaking to reporters, Cole said that, given the circumstances, Lampard has been able to bring back the feel-good factor to the club.
Lampard was appointed by the club in the summer and has revolutionized the club with a new playing style despite the transfer ban.
He has brought about players from the youth team with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, among the players that have thrived under the tutelage of the former Derby manager.
Abraham, in particular, has thrived at Stamford Bridge after failing to secure the first-team action in recent years. The England international has scored seven goals so far this season, in league with the forward showing a mix of power, pace, and positioning,
Mason Mount has thrived in the midfield role, which is reminiscent of where Lampard made his name at the club. The 21-year-old has scored goals from the midfield with his uncanny ability to find space in the box with his late runs.
Another player that has thrived under Lampard is defender FikayoTomori. The former Derby County defender has been exceptional this season since his return on loan this summer. Tomori, with his mix of power and defensive positioning has been a top-quality player for the team.
He has been able to capitalize on the injury problems at the back, which has seen him play more games for the club than expected. Chelsea meanwhile are on a run of six victories in a row with the victory against Ajax, the latest scalp.
The Blues face Burnley this weekend as they look to push for the top 4 places this season in what is expected to be a difficult fixture.
