Frank Lampard set Chelsea Academy first-team debuts records as he has given more debuts this season to Academy graduates than any other manager in Chelsea history.
In the 4-0 victory over Everton, Lampard introduced the 18-year-old Armando Broja, who has become the eight-academy product to make his debut this season.
Chelsea celebrated his 115 years of foundation and Lampard already gained his place in record books of the club as a manager.
After his marvellous career as a player for the club, now Lampard is building a legacy, not just a team.
Chelsea were handed a two-year transfer ban by FIFA, after 150 rule braches involving 69 academy players over several seasons.
Lampard did not sign any player in the summer before FIFA transfer ban reduced following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
During January, Lampard again opted against signing players.
However, he did his best as the manager lean on only academy graduates. In addition, currently, the number of those players is eight.
