Frank Lampard has revealed that he has been delighted by Tammy Abraham’s displays in a Chelsea FC shirt so far this season.

The young striker has been a regular fixture in the first team under Lampard this term as the new Chelsea FC boss continues with his policy of selecting young players for his side.

Abraham scored his first Champions League goal for the Blues on Wednesday night when he helped the west London side to claim a 2-1 victory at Lille in the group stage.

The 22-year-old has now scored eight goals in nine appearances in all competitions for the Blues this season in what has been a very impressive start for the young striker.

Lampard was quizzed about Abraham’s fine form after Wednesday night’s win, and the Chelsea FC boss gave a glowing verdict on his recent performances.

Speaking at his post-match news conference in France, Lampard said: “Tammy’s performance was more of the same.

“He’s hungry for goals, he’s physical, he gives everything for the team and he has quality when the ball is at his feet.

“Of course, there’s improvement to be had but he’s showing that. The minute Tammy’s levels drop, then we look next to [Olivier] Giroud and [Michy] Batshuayi, and can they come in and make a difference.

“We will see many more Champions League goals from him I hope, and many more performances like tonight.”

Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their trip to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side are aiming to maintain their place in the top four this season and make it back to back wins in the top flight for the first time this term.
