Chelsea Manager, Frank Lampard, has described Tammy Abraham’s goal in the Blues huge 4-1 away win against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday as ‘incredible’.
The win moved Chelsea further up in the table to fifth and Lampard told the club’s website after the impressive display and victory that he trusted in Tammy’s quality even before the season started..
“Tammy’s goal incredible, to get the purchase and contact on the ball,” he said.
“When people are in good form, things happen for them. It comes from how Tammy has handled himself all season, from preseason, from early season when people were questioning him in different ways, and the work ethic behind the scene that gets him in such good nick.
“He’s not just an incredible handful for defenders, with his running, holding the ball up and good feet, he’s getting the goals which is brilliant for him.
” I trusted in Tammy at the start of the season. I felt it was his time to come back to Chelsea. He also has Oli [Oliver] Giroud, a world Cup winner and Michy Batshuayi, a top class Premier League striker and he has made the position his own in the short term.
“He has to keep that going because competition is key. Over the course of the season we will need everybody, but he deserves the great week he has had and the great season he is having. I will keep on him because I want more.”
The Chelsea Legend hinted he was not worried when Abraham was subbed with the youngster feeling slight pain.
“He’s fine. He took a bang on the back of the knee, but I think he wanted a round of applause,” Lampard said.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
