Tammy Abraham will miss Chelsea’s FA Cup trip to Hull on Saturday

Frank Lampard is keen for Chelsea to sign a striker in the January transfer window and confirmed that Tammy Abraham has not fractured his leg.

Abraham hobbled off in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Tuesday following a challenge from Rob Holding which saw him crash into an advertising hoarding.

Lampard was pleased to reveal the 22-year-old has not fractured his leg as feared, but confirmed he will miss Chelsea’s trip to Hull in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

“Whether he’ll be fit for Leicester after that I’m still not sure. It’s not clear at the moment.”

Chelsea are heading…
