Chelsea possess two £60million players in their ranks after impressing in the early stages of the season, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Blues endured a stuttering start under Frank Lampard but have not lacked for goals, scoring 11 already in five games, a figure only bettered by title challengers Liverpool and Manchester City.

Striker Tammy Abraham bagged three as Chelsea beat Wolves 5-2 on their last Premier League outing and the England striker is one of a number of Blues to have impressed Klopp.

Tammy Abraham is now a £60m player. Mason Mount for sure if not more. [Callum] Hudson-Odoi was before that already, Klopp said.

Jorginho is not that young but not that long in the league. You have [NGolo] Kante who looks like he could play for the next 20 years.

Its unbelievable. [Mateo] Kovacic, [Ross] Barkley, then the experienced guys around them. Pedro, Willian, [Olivier] Giroud from the bench. [Michy] Batshuayi.

Chelseas five goals against Wolves all came courtesy of players aged 21 or younger who had come through the academy system.

Lampard has been forced to blood some of the younger members of the squad because he was unable to invest in the playing staff over the summer due to Chelseas transfer ban, which will last until the end of the season.

But Klopp believes they were well prepared for the sanctions.

If theres one club in the world who a transfer ban didnt hit that bad, it was probably Chelsea because of the transfer policy they did in the last few years with all these players on loan, and high-quality players, Klopp added.

Abraham scored 20-something goals last year.

Its not that he learned where the goal is at Chelsea, hed found it already.
