Chelsea are renowned to have one of the best Youth academies in the World with the Blues Colts the defending Champions of the Under-18 Premier League and are also the most successful English Team in the UEFA Youth League having won the Tournament twice.
So here’s a look at five exciting Chelsea youngsters who have Potential to achieve great things at Stamford Bridge in the years to come. Note that any player under the age of 23 is considered a youngster and even players from Chelsea’s Loan army are being taken into consideration. So here it is.
Chelsea's youth talent is actually unreal.
– Mason Mount
– Ruben Loftus-Cheek
– Ethan Ampadu
– Andreas Christensen
– Callum Hudson-Odoi
At any other top club, they'd be getting good gametime with first team. It's a shame Chelsea don't take advantage of the talent they've got.

5. Mason Mount- 19 Years Old
The 19-Year-old is Touted to be one of the best Midfielders for not only Chelsea but also for England. Mount is Currently on Loan at Derby County where under Frank Lampard he is continuing his development and is turning some heads.
Mount had a chance to show his parent Club what he’s made of when Derby squared off against Chelsea in the League Cup where Chelsea had to work exceptionally hard to register a 3 – 2 win over Derby but Mount proved his mettle with a Wonderful assist and exceptional passing from Midfield.
4. Callum Hudson-Odoi- 18 Years Old
Hudson-Odoi was the talk of the town during the whole of Chelsea’s Pre-Season. With Eden Hazard and Willian recovering from long World Cup campaigns, Callum Hudson-Odoi Stepped in and was absolutely sensational.
Though the youngster didn’t score any goals he showed an awful amount of flair and drive as he dribbled past defenders with ease to create Goals for Chelsea. With reports emerging that Hudson-Odoi is now set for a Loan move in order to get more game time, we sincerely hope that he hits the ground running at his Club and comes back a much-improved player.
3. Ethan Ampadu- 18 Years Old
Ampadu is a special player. Let me tell you why Firstly, the Welsh youngster is versatile and can be deployed at CM, CDM and at CB.
Second, he has the composure and calmness of a Seasoned campaigner, Ampadu made his debut for Chelsea at the age of 17 and he was calm on the ball, effective and very Impressive. He is a regular in the Senior Welsh team and has just signed a new long-term contract with Chelsea. Big things are expected from Ampadu, let’s see if he can live up to the expectation.
2. Andreas Christensen- 22 Years Old
Christensen may have been neglected by Sarri this Season but I still feel the Danish youngster has a future at Stamford Bridge, or at least I hope he does.
Christensen has maturity and solidity that is way beyond his years, he is expected to be one of the greatest Centre-Backs of his Generation. With an aging David Luiz, Christensen needs to start taking seriously, the game time he gets and needs to impress Maurizio Sarri soon. If Chelsea let him go, like Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, and Romelu Lukaku, Christensen would be another one that got away.
1. Ruben Loftus-Cheek- 22 Years Old
Loftus-Cheek has been spoken about for a long time and to be fair he’s lived up to the hype as well. Loftus-Cheek’s performances for Chelsea this Season have been particularly good especially in a Home game against BATE Borisov where he went on to score a Hattrick.
With Reports emerging that Loftus-Cheek will be loaned out for 6 Months in January and maybe Half a Season of regular Game-Time and no injuries is exactly what the English International needs. Furthermore, Cesc Fabregas is bound to leave the Club and Mateo Kovacic’s future is still unclear so maybe coming back an improved player with lesser competition may just elevate Loftus-Cheek’s Chelsea Career.
