16 Sep Chelsea news: Frank Lampard to become rougher on Tammy Abraham following Premier League hat-trick at Wolves
The Blues manager is keen to make sure his young striker retains his attention even though an impressive start to the year
Frank Lampard is likely to be harder than ever before on Tammy Abraham following the Chelsea striker scored a hat-trick at a 5-2 victory over Wolves on Saturday.
Abraham transferred into the peak of the Premier League scoring charts using a nice treble at Molineux, after up doubles against Norwich City and Sheffield United to take his tally for the season .
The 21-year old, who invested some time on loan in Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa at the previous 3 decades, said following the game he expects to create 2019-20″my period”.
Abraham hobbled off at the 77th moment and was replaced by Michy Batshuayi, and Lampard cautioned that the matchball hero will have to keep on hitting on the high bar he’s put himself if he’s to maintain the Belgian and Olivier Giroud from the side.
“I believed that understanding his skills and watching him at the Championship have two good seasons and at the Premier League, I believed it was time for him to have his own chance,” Chelsea boss Lampard said of Abraham.
“He had to reveal it and in the onset of the year, hence he began in Manchester United.
“I’ve competition up there. I certainly do not wish to down-talk Giroud and Batshuayi since we want them too and Batshuayi looked sharp when he arrived on and Oli consistently gives some of a higher degree, therefore it had been around Tammy to reveal it.
“I have confidence in him and I am ready to give him opportunities, but much more today I will be more demanding on him since he has shown what he could do. Hence that the moment he would like to come off that and believe that aims will probably only drop at his feet are going to be a second when perhaps he’ll be rested, therefore it is important that he makes sure that he remains on his match.
“I am glad because I see him every day with a feeling as he needs to play daily, to evaluate goals daily and that is something a little special. You do not see that in most young players and it is a fantastic present .”
Abraham was left from the England squad to the Euro 2020 qualifiers from Bulgaria and Kosovo, but Lampard believes it will not be possible for Gareth Southgate to forget the Blues child again when he maintains his kind.
“How he is going it is clearly going to place him in that mount, without telling Gareth things to do,” additional Lampard.

“To score seven goals in 3 matches and also be top scorer and perform the caliber he is playing in his all-new match – the 3 distinct kinds of goals he scored are precisely what you would like from Tammy: a sloppy one, a fantastic header and a fantastic feet and complete objective.
“He’s to maintain it and he must get better. He needs to be starving, which I understand he’s. He can never break on his or her laurels since there’s more work to be performed and England squad is a couple of weeks away. He wants to continue playing at the level and he will have a wonderful chance, I would suggest.”
Asked when he’d spoke to Abraham amid reports Nigeria are eager to offer him an alternate route into global football, Lampard said:”No. No, that is not my pick. I understand Tammy’s been in England squads earlier and I am surprised Nigeria would need himbut that is a matter for him I guess.”
