Ray Wilkins would like one of John Terry or Frank Lampard managing Chelsea

Former Chelsea assistant Ray Wilkins believes John Terry and Frank Lampard should get a shot at managing the Blues at sometime in the future. Lampard called time on his professional career earlier this year whilst Terry is currently plying his trade in the Championship with Aston Villa., who are vying for top-flight promotion.

In a report covered by The Mail, Wilkins believes the club's legends should be offered a chance to impress, should the managerial vacancy prop up in the coming seasons, he said: "Why not?" They took a chance with AVB [Andre Villas-Boas] all those years ago. Why not give it to them and let them have a bash at it? They know the club inside out, they are absolutely adored by everybody at the football club and it can only be a good thing that those two are given half an opportunity."

Ruben Loftus-Cheek controversially picks Gerrard over Lampard

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has decided to put his loyalties with Chelsea aside by claiming that Steven Gerrard was a better midfield player than former Blues teammate Frank Lampard. The 21-year-old, who is currently on a season-long loan with Crystal Palace believes Gerrard was superior to the likes of Lampard and Manchester United legend Paul Scholes owing to his additional leadership qualities.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I think most people would say Scholes. I think I’m going to say Gerrard because he could do everything. Obviously Lampard was top at what he did, and what he did was score goals, and no other midfielder can do that like Lamps. But the way Gerrard leads as well, I’d say Gerrard."

Is Chelsea's Wunderkind All Bark and No Bite?

Can Ross Barkley, the midfielder once labelled “the new Paul Gascoigne“, finally fulfil his potential?

The forthcoming months are set to be crucial in the making of Ross Barkley, as he looks to become a Chelsea regular and earn a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England World Cup squad.

On 6th September 2013, Barkley made his England debut in a 4-0 victory over Moldova, after showing signs of progress in his game under Everton manager at the time, Roberto Martinez.
