The conclusion of the Southampton fixture, on Boxing Day, will see the 2019 / 2020 Premier League season hit the halfway mark.
I’m probably not alone in declaring that, considering the situation we found ourselves in last summer with Eden Hazard leaving and a transfer embargo in place, it has been a pretty decent season so far.
Whatever the result against Southampton, on Boxing Day, Chelsea will have secured a top-four place, an achievement many of us wouldn’t have thought possible, back in August, when all the talk was of this being a transitional season.
Throw into the mixer the fact that we’ve also reached the knockout stages of the Champions League and it’s fair to say that Frank Lampard has done a remarkable job, furthermore, the football his side are playing is a pleasure to watch in stark contrast to the boring dirge served up by Mauricio Sarri.
Much of our success, this season, has been based on the fact that Frank has, as we’ve all hoped for previously, given youth a chance to shine in the Chelsea first team.
But it hasn’t just been the occasional game, Frank has given the youngsters the chance to cement a place in the starting eleven, grow in stature, grow in confidence and also show the undoubted talent that they possess.
As a result, we’ve now become accustomed to Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount, Reece James and Tammy Abraham becoming regulars.
When you also consider that Callum Hudson-Odoi is now available after recovering from injury and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also soon be available, it’s fair to say that the future does indeed look golden for Chelsea Football Club.
But and this is where we’re asking for your participation, which of the four who have grasped their chance this season, Tomori, Mount, James and Abraham, has impressed you the most?
