Cheslea seem to be enjoying life under their club legend in charge and appear to have made a good start, especially considering their summer transfer ban. Indeed, Frank Lampard has integrated the likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham into the first-time seamlessly, scoring 12 goals between them so far this season.
Right now, the Blues sit in fifth at the moment and have the returning Antonio Rudiger to give their defence a bit more stability, considering they’ve conceded more goals than anyone in the top half of the table so far this season, 14.
It’s not all been good news, however.
Over the international break, N’Golo Kante having picked up an injury and Mateo Kovacic gave fans a scare on Sunday night while on international duty for Croatia. A regular under Lampard this season, the former Real Madrid man had to be replaced by Barcelona’s Ivan Rakatic after picking up a knock against Wales.
Still, Talk Chelsea writer Simon Phillips posted a photo of him in training, with the caption “Mateo Kovacic in full training again today”. Fans quickly found the tweet and expressed their relief the injury isn’t serious in the replies.
