Chelsea boss Lampard: Werner and Havertz can take inspiration from Hazard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists Timo Werner and Kai Havertz can draw inspiration from Eden Hazard over their early struggles.

Lampard has tipped Werner and Havertz to shine at Stamford Bridge like Hazard before them, despite their early struggles.

He told talkSPORT: "The people that question them should look at other top players that have come at a young age to this country.

"Eden Hazard is a great example… he came here and became one of our greater players ever.

"It's not an easy transition to this league. It's a hard league.

"I think people that question them should give them time because they are great lads and we signed them for now and the future.

"I understand the questions as it's the world we live in. They will prove to be big players for the club."
