Graeme Souness has claimed that Chelsea FC under Frank Lampard have a better environment for nurturing young talent than Manchester United.

The Blues are currently getting used to life under new boss Lampard after he was appointed as the club’s new manager back in July.

Lampard has not been afraid to give youth a chance at Stamford Bridge this season, with the former England midfielder having trusted the likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham with regular spots in the first team.

Chelsea FC won their third Premier League game in a row on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United to move up into the table’s top four.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have been struggling to find consistent form under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

And former Liverpool FC star Souness feels that Chelsea FC have a great environment for nurturing young talent under Lampard.

Writing in his column for The Times, Souness said: “It must be galling for United fans because in the past two seasons at Anfield Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez have blossomed into something close to the finished article with a minimum of fuss [at Liverpool FC].

“Even Chelsea, under Frank Lampard and their enforced transfer ban, now looks to be a better environment for young talent to mature than Old Trafford.”

Chelsea FC will return to Champions League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Ajax.
