Tammy Abraham has proven in two of his loan spells away from the club that he has the personality to do well as a top striker.
The young Chelsea forward impressed while on loan with Bristol City, and he was equally impressive while on loan last season with Aston Villa.
Abraham has now banged in seven goals in his last three games for the Blues, and after a slow start to the season, he currently tops the league’s scoring chart.
The 21-year-old looks confidence and it was shown in the hat-trick he scored in our 5-2 victory over Wolves at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Before the game against Wolves, Abraham admitted that he was full of confidence and that the pressure of being a top striker in a big club inspires him to do more.
“I have always been a player who has confidence in myself,” Tammy told the official Chelsea website when asked if the weight of expectation at Chelsea is greater.
“I use the pressure to drive me and inspire me. Going into the games I think it drives me even more: I want to do well for myself, my team-mates, my family and all the fans.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has challenged Abraham not to rest on his laurels after his hat-trick against Wolves because there is more work to be done, and he believes that the young forward will make Gareth Southgate’s England squad soon.
When asked about Abraham potentially being 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.”
