Three #ChelseaYoungsters were in action against Barcelona earlier today. All three of them held their own in a competitive match against the Spanish giants.
Tammy Abraham (21) got himself his first goal for Chelsea, calmly finishing past ter Stegen in the first half. Although it was a mistake by Sergio Busquets that led to the goal, there was still a lot of work to be done by Abraham, and he handled the situation very well. Considering he looked very shaky with the ball prior to that goal, his composed finish will certainly do him a world of good in terms of confidence.
Mason Mount (20) made his third start of the preseason. He was not as much of a presence as he was in recent matches, but he did make the correct decisions when he got the ball. It definitely seemed like he was playing safe and not playing any “high-risk high-reward” passes, but when you’re playing a side as talented as Barcelona, there’s nothing wrong with that. He didn’t play a big part in the result, but he didn’t hurt Chelsea either.
Fikayo Tomori (21) once again had a solid outing. Individually, he was not tested all that much, but he seemed very sound all throughout the second half. Him and Zouma formed a very good partnership, which I would definitely like to see more of throughout the rest of preseason.
It looks like these three individuals are the youngsters that Lampard will be the most likely to use in the upcoming season. If Abraham, Mount, and Tomori can continue to produce solid performances against top teams, do not be surprised if they get legitimate playing time in this upcoming campaign.
