Chelsea had a promising season in 2019/20 following the arrival of new manager and club legend Frank Lampard.

Questions were raised over whether the 42-year-old English manager would be able to guide the Blues to a strong finish due to his inexperience in management, but they ended the campaign in fourth position, with Lampard's faith in younger players paying off.

The likes of Tammy Abraham, Reece James and Mason Mount were all an integral part of Chelsea's squad last season, and have seen their stats upgraded in FIFA 21.

Here's how Chelsea's squad looks in EA Sports' latest game in the FIFA series.

30. Billy Gilmour (71)
