Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham failed to get a shot on goal in the first half against Crystal Palace before scoring Chelsea’s opener in the 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
Asked about Abraham’s first half struggle against Crystal Palace and then scoring, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “It says he needs to be better in the first half.
“I suppose with Tammy in some games, he’s a striker and there are games in the PL that will frustrate you because good defenders won’t give you much space behind and then maybe not in front because their midfield are in front. It’s a problem to solve and as you say he was quite quiet but if you look at any top striker you expect a lot.
“You expect everything: goals, hold-up, run behind, etc. it’s not always possible but you need to do it, stay in the game, stay bright and lively and keep trying and keep running, which he did.
“And he gets his goal, which he takes very clinically, so a great game from Tammy, even if it might not be his best game in the showreel. When you think about tough games and you get the goal that puts you in front to win the game, that’s just as important.”
