Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has forced himself into the starting XI in recent weeks after he was left out of the starting XI when the season began.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is happy with Tammy’s reaction but insists Tammy’s next challenge is to remain consistent.

Lampard said: “I think when we brought a few players in attacking areas – Hakim Ziyech has had a big impact on the other side recently, and we have players here already in those areas.

“The whole point of that recruitment was not only to bring in quality but to lift others around them, either by link up on the pitch or by squad competition. I have more options in forward areas and I need reactions.

“Tammy has shown a brilliant reaction in terms of how he is.

“He needs to be on that edge, and all the young players need to be on edge daily to push themselves to try to play in this team, and when they play like Tammy is at the moment he starts to make my decisions easier because he’s playing so well.

“Yeah, I think linking up with Timo will obviously help him, but first and foremost it always has to be the player himself.

“Tammy should take credit for his start and understand that his next challenge is to remain consistent. If he looks at last season I think he’ll see that as well.”
