After seven wins in a row for the blues, questions have been asked if the young and energetic team can contend for the top four spots or maybe even the title. One thing still stands that Lampard and his youngsters have surpassed the expectations of many, it is no doubt that the blues are a team to envy especially with the recent performances they have displayed against opponents.

Let us not forget that the Lampard’s side struggled in the opening stages of the season especially with the hard to forget 4-0 thrashing by bitter rivals, Manchester United at Old Trafford, two straight home loses, dropping points after leading in the match. With the departure of Eden Hazard, a new and statistically inexperienced manager, inability to sign new players and inclusion of new young inexperienced players in the Chelsea squad, Chelsea were all but written off even before the start of the season but look at where that has got us now, wow.

Though we may not have gotten the ultimate team but the recent performances are something to be proud of. It is true that Chelsea have a couple of youngsters in the squad but it is even more thrilling that these youngsters are surprisingly performing well.

Tammy Abraham has been a revelation this season, Mason Mount has also been sensational in the midfield and Fikayo Tomori I should say has displayed some jaw-dropping performances in the center back this season. The performances of the two young wing sensations, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic is something to reckon with, it is indeed amazing.

It is also hard to overlook the work of the experienced players in the squad; the likes of Jorginho, Kovacic, Azpi and the rest of them. Indeed, the team has responded positively to the awful start of the season but can they keep up?

The fans seem pleased with the current performances but there are some lapses that may need to be looked into.

Chelsea are still improving, they still have a lot of work to do, it may take a little time, patience and probably some transfer activity but if there is something certain, it is the fact that they are surely on the right track. Lampard’s revolution in the Chelsea team has endeared him more to both the fans and also the football world.

Chelsea is a top club, one of the best in the world and the blues players and fans worldwide believe in the new system, it is surely paying off but soon, it would do more than just to pay off.

Trust the process, Keep the Blue Flag Flying High.
