Tammy Abraham sends warning to Timo Werner over "pressure" after Lampard sacking

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has sent a warning to team-mate Timo Werner over the pressure of playing in the Premier League.

Werner has come under fire after a slow start to life at Chelsea, and has not scored in the league since November 7.

The German also missed a penalty in the 3-1 win over Luton in the FA Cup last weekend, while rival attacker Abraham grabbed a brace.

And following the sacking of manager Frank Lampard, the England international had a word of advice for his colleague to try and help him get over his slump in form.

“I feel that to be a new player coming into the Premier League it is never easy,” Abraham told Chelsea’s official website.

“I have had my struggles last season where I went a couple of games without scoring myself, so I know the pressure that comes with it.

“You just have to keep getting into the right areas and putting yourself out there.

“One thing I love about Timo is that even in hard times he always works his socks off. He is a top player and it is always good to have those players around you.

“As a striker you just have to keep making the runs and getting yourself in those positions. Eventually it will come for you.

“That’s one thing that getting into football does to you. There is always pressure.

“Good times and bad times, there is always pressure in football. But I feel like that is what we signed on for, to deal with the pressure.
