Tammy Abraham is really experiencing a bad patch, as he has struggled to come up with goals in the second half of the season.

He has failed to find the net in his past 10 games for the club and was dropped by Lampard for the 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

The 22-year-old has failed to score in the Premier League in 13 games, and hasn’t found the net since a 3-0 win over Burnley on 11 January.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that the only way out for Tammy Abraham is to work hard.

“He has had a really good season, he hasn’t scored as much in the second half of the season,” said Lampard. “But as a young player it is always clear when you have these periods there is only one way out of it and that is work and repetition in training.

“I think that is where Tammy is at. I think the contract will hopefully look after itself between him and the club and he just needs to focus on giving us that Tammy that we had earlier in the season.

“He was giving defenders so much of a problem in games and scoring regularly and it all came from how he was training and working in the week. That is just what he has to sustain all the time.”
