Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has backed Chelsea stars Mason Mount and Kai Havertz to deliver for the Blues.
While Mount came through the academy for the Blues, Havertz, the 21 year old German, was signed earlier this summer for a record amount. Both stars are young and the United legend and BT sport pundit has backed them both to come good in the next few years.
“I just think there’s a little bit a lack of creativity on the pitch,” Scholes told Amazon.
“[N’Golo] Kante does what he does brilliantly well and he’s got two young players next to him in Mason Mount and Kai Havertz, who I think will be sensational players, but that’s why I don’t think they’ll win the league this year. It’s a bit early for them. They’ll be up there, close to Manchester City and Liverpool I just don’t think they are that ready.
“But in a year’s time with a bit of experience, know-how, a bit more quality, they’ll be up there challenging.”
Chelsea have signed a host of new stars in the summer and Lampard will be hoping what Scholes said does come true.
