Tammy Abraham’s goal in the 4-1 win over Southampton on Sunday was his ninth goal of the season.

Many pundits doubted Abraham’s ability to lead the line for Chelsea and score goals at the highest level early this season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has praised the striker for his emphatic response to his early-season critics.

Lampard said: “When people are in good form, things happen for them.

“And that comes from how Tammy has handled himself all season from the early moments when people were questioning him.

“The work ethic behind the scenes that gets him in such good nick. I trusted in Tammy at the start of the season.

“He has made the position his own in the short term. Over the season we will need everybody and he deserves a great start to the season. I will keep on him because I want more.”
