Frank Lampard has played down the severity of Tammy Abraham’s injury after the striker was forced off during Chelsea’s win over Aston Villa on Wednesday evening.
Abraham netted Chelsea’s opener in the 24th minute before he turned provider in the second half to provide the assist for Mason Mount’s winning goal.
But the 22-year-old was forced off with seven minutes remaining after he injured his right knee.
Abraham was sidelined for Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham at the weekend due to a bruised hip, but Lampard appears confident that Abraham will not be sidelined for Chelsea’s trip to Everton on Saturday.

When asked about Abraham’s injury after the win over West Ham, Lampard replied: ‘It doesn’t seem too bad in there, so I’m presuming no, he’s alright.’
Lampard also ruled out the idea of giving Abraham a goal target after he netted his 11th in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
‘No, I don’t think I need to. He’s a hungry boy,’ said the Chelsea manager.
‘It’s stupid jumping too much into the future.
‘All you would say is every game as they come, game after game, can you score, can you be hungry, what can you do for the team.
‘At the minute he’s doing it and scoring goals.’
