Lampard provides injury update on Tammy Abraham


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided a fresh update on the fitness of Tammy Abraham following the Blues’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The England international missed the West Ham United game with a hip problem but he was able to make his comeback against the Villains on Wednesday night where he bagged the opening goal.

However, he was unable to complete the 90 minutes as he was substituted with a possible knee concern but Lampard has dismissed suggestions that he could miss the forthcoming league clash against Everton.

In a press conference covered by Football.London, he said: “It doesn’t seem too bad. Tammy at the moment is Tammy. A striker near the top, showing his all round game. A personality in the dressing room.”

Abraham has been the stand out performer for the Blues in the attack with 12 goals and four assists and he will be hoping to continue the good form on the trip to Merseyside this weekend.

Lampard to take late decision on Abraham’s return


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that Tammy Abraham will be offered with every opportunity to prove his fitness ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

The England international picked up a hip problem during the Champions League clash against Valencia last month and he has since missed the Premier League meeting against West Ham United, where the Blues succumbed to a surprise defeat.

Speaking ahead of the Villains clash, Lampard has indicated that his striker is still in a bit of pain and a late fitness test may determine his involvement against Dean Smith’s side.

“We are giving him every opportunity to play tomorrow. We will make the call tomorrow, he has a little bit of pain. He was in good form, he is always keen, he is trying his best,” he told the club’s website.

The west London giants have lost back-to-back games in the Premier League since the international break. This has reduced their advantage for the fourth position to just six points.

Abraham updates on hip injury


Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham believes he has avoided a significant hip problem and he is hopeful of making his comeback in a short space of time.

The England international picked up the injury right before the half-time whistle against Valencia last night but he was thereafter stretched off for treatment.

Initially, it was feared that he may have sustained a serious setback but Abraham has now provided some positive news by stating that he has been able to walk about.

“It’s much better than when it happened. I was fearful of the worst when it happened but when got into the changing room, I could walk about. I’ll have a scan and hopefully it’s just bruising,” he told Chelsea TV.

Chelsea managed a 2-2 draw against Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday but they were lucky in the end with Los Che squandering a number of clear-cut chances.

At the weekend, they are scheduled to face West Ham United in the Premier League at home and Abraham is most likely to miss the London derby, barring a surprise.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Tammy Abraham following his match-winning impact against Crystal Palace over the weekend.

The England international made a tough start against the Eagles as he struggled to gain possession of the ball but he made amends after the break with a calm and collective finish past goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Abraham thereafter squandered another chance to find the net but that did not hamper the Blues with Christian Pulisic doubling the advantage in the 79th minute.

Following the game, Lampard revealed that he had offered some advice to Abraham at the interval and he is pleased that the marksman kept on going and found the breakthrough.

“He needed to liven up a bit but if you stick with it then you’ll get your moment and top strikers do. At the moment he’s proved himself to be that this season. The question is can he keep doing it? But what I see from his mentality and desire, I believe he can,” he told Sky Sports.

Abraham’s strike against Palace meant that he became the second youngest player after Arjen Robben to score 10 league goals for the west London giants.

The Blues graduate has been called up by the Three Lions for the forthcoming internationals against Montenegro and Kosovo, and it remains to be seen whether Abraham is handed with his maiden start.

Abraham wants to represent England


Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is reportedly prepared to represent England at the international level rather than switching his allegiance to Nigeria.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form for the Blues this season and he has already amassed seven goals for the club across all competitions.

According to Standard Sport, the marksman is keen on continuing his international career with the Three Lions and he has no plans of representing Nigeria for whom he qualifies through his father.

Abraham has yet to represent Gareth Southgate‘s side in a competitive fixture to date and he has appeared in just two friendlies in November 2017.

He was ignored for the previous set of internationals but reports suggest that he could earn a call-up when the new squad is announced on Thursday.

Abraham has become the undisputed striker in the Blues ranks this term and he is expected to lead the line when they take on Lille in Europe tonight.

The Blues are yet to register a point in the Champions League this term following their slender 1-0 defeat to Valencia in the curtain-raiser last month.
