Surely everyone expected that Frank Lampard job at Chelsea would be difficult this year. Not only Eden Hazard departed during the summer to Real Madrid, but the transfer ban meant that the former Derby County manager couldn’t bring in any new players to strengthen the squad. For those reasons, Lampard decided to put his faith in the young raising Chelsea stars. Two of them are starting to show great qualities and have attracted the attention of many.
2020 European Championship Betting
Mason Mount was on loan at Derby County with Lampard last season while Tammy Abraham scored lots of goals for Aston Villa in the Championship. Both have been trusted by the former Chelsea midfielder to step up into the Chelsea first team, and both have so far repaid their manager with top performances.
Gareth Southgate will name on Thursday his England squad for next week’s 2020 European Championship qualifiers. Both Mount and Abraham are expected to get a call for the matches against Bulgaria and Kosovo on the back of their Premier League performances in the first few weeks.
Of the two Mount is the player that has impressed the most. The 20-year-old exploded last season with Derby and has gone from strength to strength. He surely fit the profile of the young talents that Southgate is looking for not only for the most imminent encounters but even for the Euro 2020.
Bookmaker Paddy Power have decided to cut the odds of Mount to be named in Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad. He was at 7/2 with Paddy Power, and now he is available at 6/4 with the Irish firm. You can expect his price to shorten further if he will continue with his current form and if he will get a call on Thursday by the England manager.

Abraham, who is 21 years old, has more experience than Mount having already made loan spells with the likes of Bristol City, Swansea and Aston Villa. The 6ft 3in striker has great ability to score goals as showed in the last weekend against Norwich City and has already secured two England cups during his career.
If Abraham continues to score goals regularly, he can well take part in the 2020 European Championship. PaddyPower.com have cut his price from 14/1 to 6/1 to make the Euro 2020 squad from England. It looks as he is clearly in Southgate’s plans.
On Thursday we should get a better idea of what Southgate is thinking about Mason Mount and Abraham. Surely if the two will continue to deliver at Stamford Bridge, then they will increase their chances significantly to make it in England’s Euro 2020 squad.
