Chelsea youth coach Cole: There's no weakness in Frank's team

Chelsea youth coach Joe Cole says he can't see a weakness in Frank Lampard's first team.

Chelsea signed off for the international break with victory over Crystal Palace.

And Cole told BT Sport: "I think they're quietly chipping away at it.

“Frank won't thank us for this, I think he'd like to be even more quiet about it.

“Going into these two weeks now, he'll really take stock, reflect on how well Chelsea have started and they're in amongst it.

"I don't think the gaffer will thank me for this because you like to be the quiet ones coming from the outside in the title race.

“What I'm saying is you can't find too many faults in this Chelsea team.

"You play [Cesar] Azpilicueta, you play Reece James, you're going to get a performance.

“[Christian] Pulisic, [Mason] Mount, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, the strength in depth in this Chelsea team now.

"The biggest thing about this Chelsea team now? They look together, this isn't a collection of individuals."
