Frank Lampard Gives Tammy Abraham Injury Update, Talks Chelsea's Striker Search


Cheslea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Tammy Abraham has not fractured his ankle, but the club are searching for a striker in the January transfer window.

As former footballer and sports writer Warren Haughton observed, Abraham was injured in the Blues' 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Tuesday:

Abraham momentum takes him off pitch, crashes into barriers. He plants feet/studs onto 4G turf after touch line to avoid barrier. No chance. Why on earth do clubs allow this to happen? He would be able to slow down if he was on grass.
