Frank Lampard says Tammy Abraham would have gotten a chance in the Chelsea first-team this season, irrespective of the club's transfer ban.

Abraham took his tally to seven goals in three games with a hat-trick in Saturday's win at Wolves, which lifted him to the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.

Lampard says the 21-year-old is not exceeding expectations, however, and believes there is plenty more to come from the striker.

"I never had clear expectations for him, only the fact that I believed in him and trusted him," said the Chelsea boss.

"I know a lot has been made of the ban, giving young players potential opportunities, but I felt the time was right for Tammy to have his opportunity at this club anyway, because of the quality he has got.

"I'm really delighted he has got his goals, I think there's even more to come. He's in a good place that requires him to sustain and improve even more. With his mentality, I hope to see that."
