Lampard says Chelsea duo are amongst the best in the world

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has hailed his midfield teammates Oscar and Eden Hazard.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final second-leg clash at home to PSG, Frank Lampard has hailed the talent of his teammates Oscar and Eden Hazard.

The two playmakers have arguably been Chelsea’s most consistent performers this season - creating and scoring the goals which have helped the side to the Premier League summit.

Belgian international Eden Hazard is in the running for this season’s Player of the Year award as a result of his fine season. The 23-year-old has scored 14 goals and assisted a further seven – topping the club’s charts in both categories.

His teammate Oscar, on the other hand, is also showing huge potential as the 22-year-old Brazilian international is Chelsea’s second top goalscorer with eight goals in 22 starts.

In a season where Chelsea’s strikers have failed to live up to expectations, the two stars have certainly taken on their fair share responsibility, despite their young age.

Frank Lampard has been left mightily impressed with his teammates, and he believes the duo are already at the top level with the potential to go as far as they want.

“These two are top talents with a top attitude and this season Eden has put himself into the top bracket of world football.” He told the Daily Star.

“But I don’t leave Oscar out of that group either after what he did last season having just arrived from Brazil and what he’s doing again this season.”

“I’d put the pair of them in that top bracket of player already – and they can take it as far as they want.”
