Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham only just returned from injury to face Aston Villa, and the 22-year-old striker confirmed his importance to the team by scoring the first goal and assisting the second for the Blues.

Tammy had suffered a hip injury in the 2-2 draw against Valencia, which caused him to miss Chelsea’s game against West Ham. He also had to be taken off towards the end of the game against Villa.

However, Blues boss Frank Lampard has assured that the Chelsea striker is doing well.

When asked about Abraham’s injury after the win over Villa, Lampard replied: “It doesn’t seem too bad in there, so I’m presuming no, he’s alright.”

Lampard also hailed Tammy Abraham’s performance and his all round game after showing his importance to the team.

“Tammy at the moment is a striker that is near the top of the goalscoring charts in the league,” he added, “and is showing his all-round game which stretches defences and starts our press.

“He is a personality that is growing in our dressing room every day with his enthusiasm and his will to win and of course if a player is on such a good run and they come out of the team then it is normal you can miss them, and today he came back in as he left off.”
