Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that striker Tammy Abraham can learn a lot from Blues club legend Didier Drogba. The 21-year-old has been one of the stars for Lampard’s side so far and exceeded expectations. Thus far, he has managed to score several goals in the League from just six games. The highlight for him so far was his hat-rick against Norwich City. Due to the prowess which he is showing at such a young age, Abraham has drawn comparisons to Drogba as well as former England striker Wayne Rooney. He should be introduced to the Three Lions squad soon as cover for Harry Kane based on his current level of performances.
“It’s normal that the top strikers are judged on goals, and the next level of that is: do you score goals against the big teams,” said Lampard as quoted by The Guardian.
“I understand that because against someone like [Virgil] Van Dijk, a defence like Liverpool, a team like Liverpool, maybe it’s harder to create chances.
“So it’s what can you do individually to try and create them, and how clinical can you be after that. He’s shown great signs this season but it will be another test on the way and it’s not the be all and end all day and we make our judgements after this. But for the top strikers like Didier, we all remember the amount of times he scored in finals and semi-finals and really important games and I think, quite rightly, players are judged on that.
Abraham could be the best Blues striker since Drogba
The Blues have had a difficult time finding a solid number nine since the departure of Drogba. Since then, they have tried out the likes of Diego Costa, Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain and Olivier Giroud. Costa did show flashes of brilliance and had the technical ability to become a great player at Stamford Bridge but he lacked loyalty and desire to remain at the club. After failing to fully settle into life in England, Costa was eventually granted his wish and made a return to Spain with Atletico Madrid.
Morata and Higuain failed to score goals on a regular basis and the club opted not to keep them. Giroud has been a relative success when considering that his role has always been to be a good cover option up front rather than to lead the line on a regular basis. The veteran was also instrumental in terms of helping the Blues to win last seasons Europa League but he will be unlikely to remain with the team beyond next summer.
Abraham has the technical ability to become a great at Stamford Bridge. He is also a boyhood product of the Blues and as such, may have a desire to remain with the club for a long-time.

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that Frank Lampard has what it takes to succeed as Blues manager this season. The 41-year-old Lampard was surprisingly appointed as the West London club’s manager during the summer after Maurizio Sarri opted to resign and take on the role of Juventus manager. Some such as myself felt that it would have been better for the Blues to go with a more experienced candidate such as Rafa Benitez who has a proven track record of working well with limited resources as the Blues have had to do so far this season due to their two window transfer ban.
