Mateo Kovacic is backing Tammy Abraham to step his game up and become an important player for Chelsea FC this season.

The young striker scored his first two goals of the season on Saturday when he netted twice in the 3-2 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

New Chelsea FC boss Frank Lampard is clearly ready to place a lot of faith in Abraham, with the 21-year-old having started two of the Blues’ three Premier League games so far this term.

Abraham will be looking to hold down a regular starting spot in the Chelsea FC team in the coming weeks and months as he looks to help the Blues climb the table.

And Croatian midfielder Kovacic is expecting to see Abraham impress in a Chelsea FC shirt this season.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Evening Standard, Kovacic said: “It comes naturally [my understanding with Abraham].

“Tammy is a great player with good movement, he is still young and he can improve a lot.

“The whole team is doing quite well in these first games and we have a good connection, we can only get better from now on.”

Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they take on Sheffield United in front of their home fans at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are aiming to win back to back games for the first time this season after their win over Norwich City last time out.
