Performing well in front of the club’s technical and performance advisor will do them no harm – particularly at a time when the pathway to the first team has been opened up under Frank Lampard.
Here we look at three players, who will be hoping to make an impression and eventual breakthrough.
He’s actually already made his breakthrough and has been called up by Lampard as the Chelsea manager deals with injury concerns on the wings.
The forward started against Krasnodar in the Champions League last week and was on the bench against Everton in the absence of Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
With Chelsea playing Wolves on Tuesday night, he may be involved again – and that underlines the promise he has shown at youth level with his bravery on the ball, touch and movement.
A real threat when he drives at goal and forces to defenders to commit.
A goal-scoring midfielder who has impressed every time he’s been asked to make a step up.
One of the stars of Chelsea’s FA Youth Cup finalists last season, he has stood out since making the move up to the Development squad this season.
The 18-year-old from Isleworth was on target in the 2-1 win against Leicester earlier this month and is making a name for himself with his eye for goal, as well as his creative qualities.
A former winger, who also played centre-back, he cites Cristiano Ronaldo as his ultimate inspiration.
A versatile right-sided player, Livramento has firmly established himself in Chelsea’s Development team.
A modern player, he can operate as an attacking full back or as an orthodox winger, which are qualities highly valued by Lampard.
He says he is still to determine what is his favoured role, but that adaptability is proving to be a strength as he continues to develop his game and impress at youth level.
