FRANK LAMPARD reckons Chelsea could have unearthed a gem in young Daniel Sturridge.

#bodycopy a { font-size: 12px; } The 19-year-old scored the Blues’ first in Seattle – then produced a superb pass that led to Lampard’s second as Carlo Ancelotti’s reign started with this friendly win on Saturday.

The striker’s signing from Manchester City almost slipped under the radar earlier this month.

But Lampard said: “He’s been very impressive in training. I was also impressed by the glimpses I saw of him when he played at City last season.

“I watched him in the FA Youth Cup against Chelsea and I could tell straight away that he had ability, but he’s shown now that he can come in and play in this team.

“He’s a very good signing for us because we want young, hungry players, and he’s got all that.”

He will also get better, with players like Anelka and Drogs to learn from, he will go from strength to strength. He has to have pitch minutes though, he is young and hungry and if we don't play him I think we will shoot ourselves in the foot, because he will be off to somewhere he will get first team games.

Should offer a Lampard a job as a scout when he retires, he can see talent in people and their poetential.

Sturridge and Di Santo should benefit this season, in small matches and then if their form is good enough then bigger matches.

Looked excellent and confident once again today against Inter. I can't help but feel all this expectation he is generating through these early performances will hinder him, though, as it always seems to be.
