Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes Chelsea made a mistake letting Tammy Abraham leave on loan during the summer.

The 20-year-old striker has scored five times in ten appearances for Swansea City this season.

When asked if it was a mistake letting Abraham leave on loan, Lampard told BT Sport: “For Chelsea as a club, yes it is a mistake.

“It’s not [a mistake] for Tammy as I don’t think he would have played so many games. Now you see him playing regularly and he is improving as a player.

“Chelsea could say ‘we didn’t feel Tammy was going to play’, if you say Morata was fit all season then it is great experience for him and he comes back next season as a well-rounded player.

“But now Morata is injured it seems a mistake. You can’t have it both ways. I know I’ve sat on the fence there but you improve the individual by sending him on loan, but as a club now you go ‘maybe we could have kept him’.”
