The youth can’t produce when it matters the most, is complete BS. And Lampard’s Chelsea young padawans are proving that assertion right.
The club’s most budding prospects yet again generated a glittering display against a dogged and talented Wolverhampton outfit in their Molineux stadium and in front of their passionate faithful. Chelsea trounced and comprehensively outplayed a staggered Wolves team, who just couldn’t keep up with the talented, exuberance and zest exhibited by Chelsea’s gifted prospects.
Tammy Abraham bagged a remarkable hat-trick, the youngest Chelsea player to ever do so in the Premier League, which takes his goal tally to 7 goals – three ahead of his more illustrious counterparts: Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. Mason Mount yet again snagged a goal and ran the Wolves defence ragged, but it was Fikayo Tomori’s barnburner to open Chelsea’s goal galore which really stole the headlines and dropped the jaws of astounded viewers.
It ended 5-2 to Lampard’s men, and Chelsea fans are understandably buoyant after such a bewitching and lively display from their relatively inexperienced, but visibly zappy and sprightly squad.
