Callum Hudson-Odoi has a big future at Stamford Bridge.
The 20-year old Chelsea forward has been in amazing form this season scoring 3 goals from 11 games in all competitions.
The arrival of summer recruit Hakim Ziyech will likely mean Hudson-Odoi will get limited starts but Lampard wants him to be patient.
He turned down a potential move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in order to pen a long-term deal with the Blues.
“I am seeing constant improvements from him; I knew he’d had a couple of good performances for the England Under-21s last week,” Lampard told Chelsea’s website.
“I know he wants more minutes, but I have competition in that area.
“If he isn’t getting minutes in a period it doesn’t mean he is out of favour with me. He certainly isn’t.
“He is still a developing player, to a degree.
“The bit of quality he shows with the first two touches before he got his shot away was top class; I know he can do that.
“There are loads of great things about Callum, and I know there are things he can improve in his game. He knows that.
“He is a big player for Chelsea, he has a big future with us. His all-round game was fantastic, and he got his goal too.”
