Premier League: Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given an update on star forward Tammy Abraham. Abraham has been ruled out of today’s game against West Ham.
Lampard on Tammy Abraham
‘We’ll know by the end of the weekend. He’s got some pain. He won’t be involved tomorrow, and we will see by Monday. It’s a squad game over the course of a season. The lads have been training well. Every day is a work day, so when opportunities come they’re ready. I have full confidence in them.’
However, Lampard had some good news for the fans as well, regarding Toni Rudiger's condition. Chelsea boss said Rudiger's getting closer and they are getting him properly fit.
‘I’m pretty happy with how the team is playing. There have been a lot of games this season where afterwards I could say I was really happy with how we performed.
The balance of defence and attack is fluid; it can be different every game. Manchester City we were very good; Valencia we were tested in a different period of the game which makes you learn some small lessons. That’s normal.
‘There is always a need for improvement. We always analyse with the players and speak with them, but what’s important is points on the board, and that continued want for improvement. At the moment we’re okay, but we want more.’
