Callum Hudson-Odoi has found himself on the fringes at Chelsea this season, having not started any of the Blues' first three Premier League fixtures.
Despite letting experienced wingers Pedro and Willian leave, the additions of Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner who can all play out wide mean Hudson-Odoi has a lot of competition.
Manager Frank Lampard has repeatedly spoken about the need for Hudson-Odoi to improve his work ethic, most recently discussing it after the winger played the full 90 minutes in the 6-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley.
"I think he did well," Lampard said. "Not easy with not so many minutes, he is the same as some others in the same boat at the moment.
"I thought at parts he looked fresh and sharp. We talk about work ethic, which he showed really well in terms of getting the ball back for us, recovery runs, all the things which must be absolutely standard in his game.
"If you look at the top wingers in the Premier League and how they play. He showed loads of great moments. I was really pleased with Callum, I thought he had a good night."
And it seems as though Hudson-Odoi is heeding Lampard's advice, with the Sun claiming he has hired a £1,500-a-month personal trainer at his own expense in a bid to earn regular first team football this season.
The teenager is said to be lifting extra weights, doing sprint shuttle runs and aiming to improve his endurance so that he can regularly play a full 90 minutes.

The sessions are being done on top of his normal training workload with the Blues and Hudson-Odoi was doing them four times a week before the season began.
However, they have now been reduced to two times because of the packed fixture list.
The winger has also been once again linked with Bayern Munich given his lack of regular minutes in the league but he appears determined to fight for his place at Stamford Bridge.
