Lampard has pushed Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and other academy graduates to the forefront of his team and got success over recent weeks.
Klopp sees comparisons between Chelsea and his early Dortmund team, while also believing that stars like Abraham, Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi – who yesterday signed a new five-year deal at the club – are already £60million players:
Abraham has scored seven goals in six appearances to kick the season off, while Mount has three goals in six games.
Lampard’s side beat Wolves 5-2 at Molineux last weekend and should be confident welcoming Liverpool to Stamford Bridge despite the midweek 1-0 defeat to Valencia in the Champions League.
