Lampard demands more of the same from Abraham

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has demanded more of the same from Tammy Abraham after his Champions League exploits.

“Tammy’s performance was more of the same of what we are seeing,” Lampard said in his post-match press conference.

“He’s hungry for goals, physical, gives everything for the team, has quality with the ball at his feet and, while there’s improvement to be had, he’s showing that.

“It’s competitive, the minute Tammy’s levels drop then we will look to [Olivier] Giroud or [Michy] Batshuayi to see if they are pushing him and if they can come in and make a difference.

“But at this moment in time, Tammy is doing really well. That’s his first Champions League goal and hopefully we will see many more and performances like this.”

“There’s a long way to go in this group,” Lampard added. “Having lost to Valencia, it put more importance on this game.

“It’s such a tough place, anyone in the stadium would have felt that. The roof was on, the crowd were up for it, the speed in their team on the counter-attack was evident, something we knew we had to be ready for, and I thought our performance was really good.

“We controlled a lot of the earlier periods, got our goal. Set pieces are a problem for us, we need to keep working on that even more, but the chances we created away from home, the amount of possession meant that we deserved to win.”
