Chelsea on-loan player Trevoh Chalobah has picked out the qualities Frank Lampard wants from his players.

The 20-year-old is now on loan at Huddersfield Town for his second spell in the Championship.

Frank Lampard’s appointment to succeed Maurizio Sarri has helped some of Chalobah’s teammates at Chelsea academy burst onto the scene.

The likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Reece James have had their shares of loan stints before breaking into the senior team.

Chalobah told Football London: “I think those boys have shown that going on loan is beneficial for the players. To go out and get game time and experience, that’s the main thing.

“Those boys have come in and done well and proved people wrong that they are good enough.

“It just shows that the loan system does work and if you do well then you can have the achievements they have had.

About Lampard, Trevoh said he could see what the manager expects from his players.

He said: “You could see straight away what Lampard wanted.

“Working hard, winning the ball back and that’s what you can see from Chelsea now.

“Keeping the ball, playing good, attacking football and you could see right away when he came in that it was what he ingrained in the lads.

“Obviously in pre-season it was really good, and playing that game in Ireland was fantastic to play under him.”

Chalobah, who started out as centre-back, has been playing in a holding midfield role in the past two years.

He has made 28 appearances for Huddersfield this season, where he has averaged 1.5 tackles and 1.5 interceptions per game.

To break into Chelsea’s midfield though, might be quite difficult.

Along with Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, Lampard also has Billy Gilmour who has recently displayed impressive displays in Chelsea’s last two games.
