Mateo Kovacic: Chelsea youngsters don't need advice from me

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic is enjoying being part of manager Frank Lampard's young line-up this season.

While he's available to offer advice, Kovacic insists his young teammates are capable of making their own way.

He told the club's website: "I can help, but the young guys really have a great mentality, they don't need too much help,' Kovacic replies modestly when we put these achievements to him and ask what advice he can pass on to the likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham.

"They are doing great, they saw the pressure that is to play for Chelsea, they know the club already.

"They have been here for more than 10 years."
