📷 Tammy Abraham: Match Snapshot

Abraham is a preferred option in attack for Frank Lampard given some of the issues plaguing his other personnel, and he delivered in emphatic fashion

GOAL ⏱️ 11': Timo Werner got to the goal line and cut the ball back to allow Abraham to hit across goal into the far corner to open the scoring.

GOAL ⏱️ 17': Six minutes later, it was two, as Reece James' flicked cross into the area found Abraham, who held off his marker with excellent strength to loop his header over the goalkeeper and into the net.

GOAL ⏱️ 74': And he completed his hat-trick on 74 minutes, after Callum Hudson-Odoi exchanged passes with Christian Pulisic and slipped the ball across goal to Abraham, who couldn't miss from close range.

Abraham: What Next?

The forward has been competing with Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner for minutes through the middle, and this kind of display may be enough to convince Lampard that he deserves a consistent run in the side - particularly while other options continue to struggle.
