Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has once again praised the outstanding contributions and development of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham. The 22-year-old striker came back from a loan spell at Aston Villa to become Chelsea's undisputed number one striker, and the manager, Frank Lampard is proud of his development so far.

‘Tammy has developed but I don’t want to talk down his start to the season either because I thought against Manchester United for the first half he gave them real problems. He hit the post, he could have scored when one ball went across the face and he should have got moving earlier.' Lampard told chelseafc.com

‘It was a good performance but it was very easy to criticise all of those players after Man United when we lose 4-0. It’s easy to say Mason Mount and Tammy shouldn’t be playing, they’re too young, you need to play experienced players – it’s the easiest, laziest comment.

‘Having said that, he’s developed. He’s scored his goals and his performance against Tottenham only lacked a goal because it was all-round. It was giving defenders problems, testing them the other way, stretching the pitch for us, chasing off the ball, bringing balls out the sky. He’s working hard, he’s developing all the time and he’s a serious striker - we know that and we know that he’s going to get better.’ Lampard concluded.
