Petr Cech issues warning to Chelsea FC trio after impressive displays
Former Chelsea FC goalkeeper Petr Cech gives his verdict on Tammy Abraham, Mason Moutn and Fikayo Tomori
Petr Cech has warned Frank Lampard’s impressive Chelsea FC youngsters that they must learn to be consistent after a promising start to the season.
The Blues manager hasn’t hesitated to give youth a chance to shine in his opening months in charge of the west London outfit.
Lampard has transformed the ethos at Stamford Bridge in a matter of months after handing Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori opportunities to nail down regular starting spots.
The English trio seized their chance with a series of eye catching performances to earn Abraham, Mount and Tomori call ups to the England squad.
Abraham has scored eight times in eight Premier League games, while Tomori has established himself as Chelsea FC’s most reliable centre-half.
Mount has earned comparisons to his manager and club record goal-scorer Lampard for his ability to time runs into the box and get on the score-sheet.
Although Cech was full of praise for Chelsea FC’s young guns, the former Blues goalkeeper warned that they’ve got a long way to go and must keep working hard.
“In this moment I think everyone is enjoying the moment, but obviously it all depends on performances,” Cech told Chelsea’s website.
“This is just the start, the beginning, for them and they have to make sure they stay consistent and carry on. And then as a club we move forward, and as a team we play well.
“I have to say it’s always great when you manage to, as a club, do something with your own product, because this is always the ultimate target for everybody.
“You try to make sure that people go through your programme, you make them better, and then they actually reach the level where you can put them in the first team, you don’t have to look elsewhere.”
Chelsea FC are in fifth place in the Premier League table after a return of three victories in their last four games.
The Blues won their first Champions League game under Lampard earlier this month thanks to a 2-1 win at Lille.
