Marc Guehi could possibly be competing for a first-team spot within the 2021-22 seasonCredit score: Rex Options
THE England under-21 worldwide has actually come into his personal this season on mortgage at Swansea, serving to them mount a problem for the Championship title.
If he retains bettering at this fee he’ll actually be staking a declare to return in as one among Lampard’s centre-backs subsequent season.
His confidence has sky-rocketed and he’s displaying potential to develop into a top-class, modern-day centre-back.

THE midfielder’s path into the first-team seems to be so much more durable than Guehi and he would possibly exit on mortgage for one more season earlier than he will get his shot.
However you can’t ignore his capability and what he’s doing within the Premier League proper now for a struggling group.
Sarcastically, he has a glance of being ‘Lampard-esque’ by way of his box-to-box play and tendency to reach late within the opposition space to search out the web.
He has a LOT of prime expertise to compete with to make it at Chelsea, however I consider he can have an edge over some and get an opportunity.
Armando Broja has proven he has a watch for objective on mortgage at VitesseCredit score: Getty Pictures – Getty
THE 19-year previous has already been capped 3 times by Albania and he has the look of being a whole striker.
There is a little more improvement wanted from the on-loan Vitesse participant.
However with 5 objectives in 11 appearances to date this season, I firmly consider he will be within the Chelsea squad throughout the subsequent two seasons.

THE Wales ace lastly seems to be to be getting the sport time he deserves with Sheffield United within the Premier League this season – having performed as each a centre-back and defensive midfielder.
I’d nonetheless prefer to see him excellent one single place – and I do know Lampard sees him as a midfielder.
However the high quality he has is unquestionable and he’s been displaying it for years.
Equally to Gallagher, he has numerous high quality forward of him within the pecking order proper now.
However, relying on numerous different conditions and so long as he retains performing, I feel he could possibly be in Chelsea’s senior squad subsequent season.
