’s Under-14s captain took part in a training session with the first-team squad on Thursday.

’s side are preparing for their clash against on Saturday and are aiming to build on the 3-1 win over Bournemouth last weekend.

Sky Sports showed footage of Chelsea’s players going for a light jog at the start their training session and spotted running alongside Conor Gallagher, Thiago Silva, Mateo Kovacic and first-team fitness coach Matt Birnie was Charlie Holland.

Earlier this month, Holland captained Chelsea’s Under-14s to a 5-0 victory over Fulham in the Albert Phelan Cup South final.

And it appears Holland has been rewarded with a chance experience training with Chelsea’s senior players.

The win over Bournemouth was Chelsea’s first since Lampard was brought in as caretaker manager, ending a run of six straight defeats.

Noni Madueke and Benoit Badiashile both impressed in the victory but Lampard is adamant that no player is guaranteed a place in the team for Chelsea’s remaining four games.

When asked if both Madueke and Badiashile should remain in the team, Lampard said: ‘It’s probably not easy to answer that.

‘To a degree, yeah, but I’ll have to think about Forest, see what the week says. Of course, my role now is to try to give those players minutes, to show and grow a little bit in the team. But also, as much as there’s that, I have to work with all the players and they all have to respect what I’m trying to do.

‘So if they’re training well there are other players who will be pushing those players too, so they do need to have a level of performance. Noni’s performance on Tuesday got him in the team, even though he was not so well earlier in the week.

‘We all saw Benoit and it’s pretty clear that he’s got a big talent. So those are decisions I’ll have to make, but they do have to keep their level and they do have to keep pushing and we’ve got a tough run-in. The last week’s got three games and against three of the top teams, two of them away from home. So we’ll probably need to use the squad a little bit in that period anyway.’
