Tammy Abraham bounced back from being racially abused against Liverpool in the Super Cup clash to bag a brace in Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Norwich.
The 21-year-old striker was impressive against Norwich at Carrow Road last weekend and took his goals very well, in what was a very good performance to silence his critics.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been impressed with Abraham’s quality having played against him in the Championship last season, and the Blues boss has admitted he’s impressed with the character of the young Chelsea forward.
Lampard told reporters: “Really impressed. His character and how he dealt with the Twitter situation was brilliant. He had to rise above it which wasn’t easy. He certainly did with his response.
“He has this character which is enthusiastic. He trains with a smile on his face and a work ethic. In terms of what I see on the outside and how he reacted to that, and the competition to try and get in to the first XI, I can’t complain.
“That must stay and improve all the time. Two goals doesn’t make or break him. It’s just the start and he needs to push on. There’s competition up front and I’m not playing young players for the sake of it. Tammy is playing at the minute because he deserves it, but he will have to continue deserving it.”
