Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is delighted with the progress of Brazilian youngster Lucas Piazon.

The 18 year-old midfielder joined Chelsea earlier this season from Sao Paulo.

"He has trained more with the first team, which is very good for him. He's made great progress since arriving and in the last two games was on the bench.

"Unfortunately, he had no opportunity to enter, but has done a great job in the reserves team. He is a player that we have high hopes for," said Villas-Boas.
