Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed that he has had a chat with Tammy Abraham regarding the competition he will face next season.
The Blues signed Timo Werner this week and the German is expected to lead the line for them ahead of Abraham.
The youngster has been a regular starter for Chelsea this season and he has managed to impress a lot. It will be interesting to see how he performs as the backup striker next year.
Abraham will be hoping to start every game but it might not be possible for Lampard to accommodate two strikers in the starting lineup, as it would weaken the midfield.
It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds next year.
Tammy Abraham is a top talent who needs to play regularly in order to achieve his potential. He has scored 15 goals in all competitions so far this season.
Lampard claims that Chelsea have demands as a club and Abraham will have to sustain his form and improve if he wants to feature regularly.
He said: “I have spoken to Tammy before about competition. I don’t have to address every player if another one comes in. It’s how it has been in the Abramovich era, but Tammy has been very good this season. We have had options and pleased with the idea of that. He has been fantastic this season. He has to sustain and improve because at Chelsea we have demands. I am happy to have options and competitions for places.”
