Declan Rice praises the progress made by fellow England teammate

Speaking in a press conference, Rice said that he is pleased with the progress made by Mount with the Blues and believes the midfielder has the credentials to succeed with the club on a long-term basis, he told: “He’s pretty much immaculate. He’s playing the same way Lamps used to play. I am not surprised he is doing that for Chelsea and he is going to keep doing that there for years.”

Frank Lampard reveals one concern over Chelsea’s early season form

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that the Blues need to improve on one aspect in order to return to winning ways. The west London side have yet to win under the management of new boss Lampard and they have managed one draw and two defeats from their opening three games across all competitions.

Speaking after the 1-1 league draw against Leicester City, Lampard said that the fans may need to show more patience towards the team’s performances, given there is the room for improvement. He added that the players could have put the game to bed after the early strike and the lack of clinical finishing remains a concern at the current point of time, he quipped: "It's very early for us. We have to be patient as we are working towards something. Two or three nil would have taken the game away from them but we didn't take those chances. That's the story of our season so far. We need to be more clinical, for sure. It is defining."
