Tammy Abraham equalled a Frank Lampard record that has lasted for nine after his brace in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Sheffield United.

Following his brace against Sheffield United, Abraham became the first English man to score at least two goals in consecutive English top-flight fixtures for the Blues in over nine years.

Not since current Chelsea boss Frank Lampard in 2010 has an English player netted more than one goal in consecutive Chelsea games.

Lampard achieved this feat after netting twice against Sunderland and then Birmingham.

Thanks to his brace against Sheffield United, Abraham has now scored four goals in four games for Chelsea in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Lampard refused to blame the defence after Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Sheffield United.

‘It is not the defence, it is conceding as a team so the lack of concentration or mistakes for the goals are moments when you defend as a team, as much as you attack as a team,” pointed out Lampard.

“We concede because we switch off in a game that should be comfortably seen out at 2-0 up. That is not to disrespect Sheffield United, 2-0 is not the end of the story.

“I was clear with the players at half-time that this can either be 3-0, and okay then this could be nice, or a potential 2-2 on our hands and the disappointing fact is the first goal as much as anything because that allowed it to happen. We only have ourselves to look at as a group, not individuals.

“And I could not care less that we have the youngest team in Chelsea Premier League history. It was a real plus last week, and the fact it was young today I don’t think relates at all.”
