Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham scored a brilliant goal from outside the box after taking on two Norwich defenders as the Blues beat Norwich 3-2 on Saturday. It was his second goal in the game after he converted a cross from Cesar Azpilicueta after just 3 minutes.

According to The Telegraph, Frank Lampard has taken Abraham under his wings since arriving in the summer as Chelsea boss.

Lampard has been working personally with Abraham in training and his second goal against Norwich was proof of Lampard’s influence on the 21 year old striker.

The Telegraph claims Lampard, who was renowned for his long-distance shooting ability, has encouraged Abraham to take on more shots from outside the box.

Before Abraham’s goal against Norwich, he had never scored a senior goal, on loan at Bristol City, Swansea City or Villa, from outside the penalty area.

Lampard told talkSPORT about Abraham: “I thought he was fantastic, the finishes were really good.

“The first goal I thought was a top finish and the second one as well that wins us the game, yeah, really good.

“Difficult conditions, I ask a lot from the strikers, I want them to work off the ball, I want them to run channels, I want them to hold it up, I want everything from them.

“So in those conditions it was tough for him, but Tammy showed today with the stature of him, the size of him, the quality that he’s got.

“If he’s on it and he’s running and he’s causing problems, then he can be a really good all-round striker for this club.”
