Chelsea youngster Lewis Hall has been spotted in first team training this week ahead of the game against Nottingham Forest this weekend.

The 18-year-old has a really good chance of featuring this weekend as a result of more injury troubles for the Blues this year.

All in all, it has been a breakout season for Hall, despite hardly featuring in recent weeks.

A run of games around the Christmas period helped show everyone exactly the talents he possesses, being Chelsea’s best player on the pitch in numerous outings.

This is despite playing largely out of position too. He obviously can play left-back, however predominantly featured for the youth team in a central midfield role.

He may be required to play a part in the remaining few Premier League games of the season.

Big chance for Hall to play

Ben Chilwell was forced off the pitch against Bournemouth at the weekend due to injury, which is likely to rule him out for the rest of the season.

As well as the Englishman, Marc Cucurella is currently not available either, leaving the left-back role vacant for the foreseeable future.

Hall would certainly be the best choice to fill the role, although Lampard may look to the more experienced Cesar Azpilicueta to play there like he did at the Vitality stadium.

The position is likely to be under some scrutiny this summer, when young star Ian Maatsen returns from his loan deal at Burnley.

The recently promoted side would surely like to keep him for at least another season, however whoever the new manager at Stamford Bridge becomes will be keen to have a look at his talents first hand.

This is currently set to be Mauricio Pochettino, with reports claiming an agreement could be announced as soon as this week.
