Asked if Batshuayi can lead the line for Chelsea in the absence of Abraham, Lampard told reporters: “Yes, he is the recognised striker. We now Oli might potentially move on at the moment. He is the absolute recognised striker. He is an international striker, so yes, for sure.”

Lampard also added he was impressed with the performance of Batshuayi against Hull City.

Lampard said: “He gets his goal. I am pleased as a goal scorer and a striker, he wants to score goals and it helps his confidence. I am pleased.

“I have said all season that we can’t just rely on Tammy. Tammy has been scoring regularly. He has given us a lot. Of course, we want Michy firing and scoring goals like he did today and when he trains he needs to stay at that level because today we needed him.”
