Frank Lampard has told his Chelsea youngsters they have set the normal for the rest of the season immediately after their spectacular 1- win at Ajax.

Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi all began in the imposing Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

They stood up to every thing final season’s semi-finalists could throw at them, just before Michy Batshuayi rifled in the winner 4 minutes from time.

“That’s the blueprint. There are no excuses for us now. That is the normal and we can not drop it,” mentioned Lampard.

“The most pleasing factor is the need to boost and adhere to a game strategy, and we are moving in the ideal path. The indicators are excellent at the moment.”

Batshuayi had missed a sitter from six yards out just before he converted a cross from fellow substitute Christian Pulisic to move Chelsea level on points with their hosts at the top rated of Group H.

“I’m delighted with every single element of the efficiency, the perform ethic from absolutely everyone and the subs was second to none,” added Lampard.

“That’s what you want from the subs – occasionally the hardest aspect is leaving a person out. It is wonderful for the spirit of the squad when subs come on and make an effect like that.

“Michy’s instruction and positivity is precisely what you want. I know he missed a single possibility but his hold-up play was superb and he got his purpose.

“Whatever occurred immediately after that miss I would have been proud, but I know Michy can finish. Christian’s help is as essential as the finish, and the reality the sub scored tends to make me so pleased.”

Ajax will point to a disallowed purpose in the very first half from Quincy Promes, who was ruled offside by VAR in the tightest of choices.

Promes told Uefa.com: “I believed I had created my run at the ideal time but the VAR is there to make positive in this sort of scenario, so we just have to accept the selection.”
