Mateo kovacic: Lampard gives me more freedom

The Croatian started alongside Jorginho and Ross Barkley in Chelsea’s 3-2 win away to Norwich City on Saturday, what was Lampard’s first Premier League win since his appointment.
Kovacic, an attacking midfielder by trade, played in a more defensive capacity underMaurizio Sarri last season.
But since completing his £40million move to Stamford Bridge, and working under Lampard, the 25-year-old has begun to push further forward.
He is still to score for the Blues, but a fine pass in the second half yesterday created the all-important third goal at Carrow Road.

“Yeah, he [Lampard] gives me more freedom and I can come and take the ball and go forward,” he said.
“So I feel good, I have a good connection with the coach and the team but I am now a Chelsea player so I feel better – last year I was only on loan – this year I feel better and more confidence.

“I think we started [the season] playing very well, the results were not perfect but obviously we played good.
“We needed the three points more than the beautiful game and we did a good game, won and so everything was perfect.”
Chelsea certainly did need the win.
And Kovacic believes the team can now feel more relaxed with their first win under their belts.
“It makes it more relaxed, last year was difficult and I needed to show myself but I think last year was good, not perfect but good, this year I have started well and I want to continue like that.
