Tammy Abraham has had a superb start to life in the Chelsea first team, but Frank Lampard expects him to improve in one particular area.
The 22-year-old has netted 13 Premier League goals so far, with another two in the Champions League and four assists in all competitions.
The England international had a tough test on Saturday during the 3-0 win over Burnley, going up against the physical centre-back partnership of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski.
However, Abraham stood up to the challenge well, netting the second goal and impressing with the fighting nature of his game to stand up to the challenge.

It is a side to his game that has been a little underestimated over the course of the campaign so far, with his goals being the standouts.
But Lampard has been impressed with his work in that area and believes the striker will get even better with that side to his game.
“He gave as good as he got,” Lampard said. “I think that is important for Tammy to do that when you have his frame six foot three, he has to use his body.
“I think he has done to great effect this year and he’ll get better at that.
“It is important to know when bodies are coming through you that you hold your frame and at least make it very difficult for them, and he did that today.”
