Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is the man of the moment after bagging a hat-trick in the 5-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The 21-year-old seemed to have struggled with the striking position in his first couple of games and even missed an important penalty in the Super Cup penalty shootout loss to Liverpool.
Despite facing much criticisms about being unable to be the first choice striker for a big club, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard decided to stick with the young striker, and he has now repaid the faith his manager has placed on him with seven goals in his last three games.
Lampard has now backed the young striker to be considered for the next England squad.
Lampard said: “The way he is going, it is obviously going to put him into that bracket.
“Without telling Gareth what to do… But to score seven goals in three games and be top-scorer and play with the quality he is playing his all-round game.
“The three different types of goals he scored were exactly what you want from Tammy. A messy one, a good header and then a fantastic feet and finish goal.
“He has to sustain it and has to get even better. He has to be hungry, which I know he is. He can never rest on his laurels, because there is more work to be done.
“And that England squad is a few weeks away. So he needs to keep playing at that level and he’ll have a great chance, I’d suggest.”
It isn’t just Frank Lampard who’s in awe of the 21-year-old, the media and fans from the club and non Blues fans have taken to social media to sing his praise.
