Against Sheffield United, in fact, the glaring individual errors were made by the visitors and some of Chelsea's better performances came from their younger players.

Wilder believes the battling draw at Stamford Bridge will give his side confidence and belief for the rest of the Premier League season.

Chelsea will once again be without the services of Pedro, who picked up a hamstring injury just prior to the Norwich game last weekend.

The Blades looked dead and buried at half-time after trailing to Tammy Abraham's double but they mounted a recovery in the second half and earned a point thanks to Callum Robinson's strike and a Kurt Zouma own goal.

"We conceded because we switch off in a game that should be comfortably seen out at 2-0 up". It is disappointing but we just have to learn from it. "We only have ourselves to look at as a group, not individuals".

Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed that his recovery from an Achilles injury has gone well and he should be back available for selection for Chelsea FC after the worldwide break.

The final ten minutes were critical for the Blues, as they fought to hold on to their win. Abraham is now on four goals in four games, and is really finding his scoring boots for Chelsea, which will come as a relief for Lampard, who has limited striking options.

The former midfielder's position was partly driven by the transfer embargo imposed on the club, but also a belief in the reserves of talent at in the club's academy that have too often been overlooked by Lampard's predecessors.

"Kovacic was on his haunches and was blatantly exhausted".

The manager though has come out to defend his decision saying that he has full faith in Billy Gilmour and his talent.

The tests are about to become harder but there is so much goodwill behind Lampard's efforts to promote young, homegrown players and offload some of the expensive misfits who have been sitting around at Stamford Bridge. "We must cope as a squad and we should show that".

Chelsea have been dealt a major blow with the news that N'Golo Kante will miss the game after failing to recover from an ankle injury that kept him out of the win at Norwich last time out.
