Tammy Abraham believes Chelsea must make Stamford Bridge ‘rock’ if they are to get anything out of this season.
The Blues have struggled at home throughout the campaign, but sealed an impressive 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.
However, Frank Lampard’s side have a tough run of fixtures coming up at home, with Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich, Everton and Man City the next visitors.
The atmosphere inside Stamford Bridge has been questioned at times, but Abraham insists it is up to the players to make west London a fortress.

“Yeah, we’ve got to make the stadium rock,” Abraham said. “We’ve got tough games coming here but I am always confident – especially after the win today – that we can go out and enjoy ourselves.
“A lot of people say the fans are quiet, but they want to come and watch beautiful football and recently in our home games we haven’t been doing that. You can see today that we were playing beautiful and the fans were behind us.”
The Blues had a shocking end to 2019 at home, with defeats to West Ham, Bournemouth and Southampton rounding off their calendar year.
But the Chelsea striker, who netted his 13th Premier League goal of the campaign at the weekend, always had faith that things would turn around.
“For me I was always confident, it was just a matter of time, when?” Abraham said. “We knew we had to give a performance against Burnley and we went out, full confidence.
“It was a bit disappointing after the win against Arsenal to draw at Brighton but we had to take the confidence from Arsenal into this game.
“I think we come here and it was just a bit too slow. We showed today that we started sharp and it continued throughout the game.”
