Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham admits he used criticism of his difficult start to the season to fuel his match-winning display at Norwich.
Abraham’s brace fired Frank Lampard to his first Premier League victory as Chelsea manager and erased some of the doubts about his misfiring strikers.
None of Chelsea’s forwards had scored in the Premier League this term until Saturday when Abraham bagged his first goals for the club in the 3-2 win.
It was a special afternoon for Abraham, who is one of Chelsea’s prized homegrown assets.
It was a nasty experience for Abraham, who is aware of the doubters and is determined to silence them.
‘I have always believed in myself,’ Abraham told Chelsea’s official website.
‘I know I have had a bit of a sticky time at the start of the season, but I’m someone who doesn’t let that affect me. It drives me on.
‘Now I have scored two good goals and hopefully I can keep scoring for Chelsea.’
