Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has plans for Kenedy, Loftus-Cheek and Zouma


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says the young players of his team will enjoy regular first-team football this season.

The Portuguese was full of praise for 20-year-old Kurt Zouma, 19-year-old Robert Kenedy and 19-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek despite last weekend's defeat at home against Crystal Palace.

Zouma played the full 90 minutes against the Eagles with Kenedy and Loftus-Cheek coming on in the second half of the game.

And Mourinho has declared that the three youngsters will feature regularly during this campaign.

"This is about the young players working and coming in and using the opportunities they have to improve and show their qualities," Mourinho told the club's official website.

"I have beautiful young eggs in Kenedy, in Ruben and in Zouma. If you look at the game all of these young eggs did well. Zouma - great personality, great game. Kenedy changed the game and gave a different intensity and a different quality. Ruben was fine too.

"I'm not saying they are ready and they can be consistent and play every game.

"I am saying these young guys have good talent. Zouma with the experience of the last season has reached a fantastic level for a 20-year-old. Kenedy and Ruben, these kinds of boys, are players with very good talent."
