Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was impressed with the performances of Raheem Sterling and Trevoh Chalobah in the 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest.

Lampard said: “Yeah it was a brilliant goal and also the first one, I think just from being around the penalty area, it was an important position to take and not be out wide and Raheem has obviously done that throughout his whole career.

“We have to understand it’s not just about Raheem doing that, it’s about other attacking players getting in the box to do that. At the moment we have some developing players.

“There a lot of things to work on for the club long-term not to take away from Raheem’s two goals because the second one was brilliant and that’s what you want from your players at the top end of the pitch.”

On Trevoh Chalobah, he added: “Yes. A really good game. Trevoh was fantastic. When you ask him to do something, he does it. He steps in with urgency, he defends well, he’s physically great. I thought he had a really good game, I agree.”
