'He's getting better - he showed his ability to step up': Lampard details Anjorin's progress with Blues, highlights teenager's strengths

"He’s shown in training, since last season when he was involved with us, a real ability to step straight into the level in terms of his abilities on the ball, which he showed today," Frank Lampard said of Tino Anjorin to Chelseafc.com.

"The way he receives the ball, the way he moves with the ball very quickly, his physical attributes to protect the ball and run. 

"He’s had some fitness issues in terms of being able to complete games at Under-23 and youth team level, and that’s something that’s a work in progress with him but he’s a player I feel the more he trains with us, the better he gets because it’s a really good environment for him. With the injuries we have in the short-term, he’ll be spending more time with us."

The 19-year-old was handed his first start for the Blues against Krasnodar and he impressed a lot - he completed 89 per cent of his passes, 2 key passes and attempted 2 shots in a very confident performance.

It's great to see youngsters like him doing so well for Chelsea. We hope to see Anjorin play more with the team and continue to grow into a better player!
