Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has identified Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori as the three Blues players that are excited to take on Valencia in Tuesday’s Champions League group stage clash at Stamford Bridge.
Lampard said this over the weekend following his side’s Premier League 5-2 victory over Wolves at Molineux.
Mount, Abraham and Tomori all scored in Chelsea’s victory over Wolves but Lampard believes the trio are eager to feature for the West London club against Valencia.
“It’s certainly a good feeling to see the team play the way they did,” Lampard was quoted by Sky Sports as saying.
“We need more clean sheets, that’s something we continually need to work on.
“But, yeah – the Champions League.
“It is the top club competition in world football and I’m sure Mason and Tammy and Tomori are all excited for it.
“All the players should be, all players love the Champions League – and I’m looking forward to my debut as a manager.”
The kick-off time for the match is 8 pm.
