Frank Lampard Chelsea won't go 'crazy' after transfer ban lifted

The Blues' ban on transfers has seen Lampard hand opportunities to several of the club's best young talents during the opening months of his reign at the club, though the Chelsea boss does not believes January signings will harm the development of his emerging stars.

A Federation Internationale de Football Association imposed transfer ban prevented the 41-year-old from signing any new players, so he took a closer look at the club's younger talent ahead of the 2019-20 season.

I think we've found ways in the team where we can still be competitive.

Despite a youthful side, Chelsea find themselves fourth in the Premier League and through to the last 16 of the Champions League.

"If you look at Tammy Abraham, at the beginning of the season there was a discussion about who would lead the line, and he managed to get himself a number of goals that stopped the discussions nearly straight away between him and Olivier Giroud".

Lampard said: "With the youth, we understand those bumps in the road will come, whether individually or collectively". "I believe in the quality of the young players here". We've shown that in the league and now the Champions League.

I think those sort of challenges should be ones that the young players stand up to.

"I don't think Frank wants a player who is at an older age and then doesn't want to obey his rules or the way he wants to play".

"But also I look at Abraham, he is the main guy, but if he gets injured who is going to score the goals?"

"But as we move forward and we want to improve the squad, it will be done with a view to what we have and where we can get better".

A 2-1 European victory over Lille on Tuesday helped to lift the mood at the Bridge ahead of another home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday, which they can ill afford to lose as the fixture list starts to pile up.
