Tammy Abraham suffered a fresh injury scare after Chelsea’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
The Bundesliga champions are in full control ahead of the second leg in Germany as a double from Serge Gnabry and a goal from Robert Lewandowski sealed a 3-0 victory against Frank Lampard’s side at Stamford Bridge.
Olivier Giroud started the match in attack but the French striker was replaced by Abraham in the 61st minute.
Abraham had an excellent opportunity to pull a goal back for Chelsea following Pedro’s low ball across goal but the England international failed to anticipate the delivery and was caught too far away from the pass.
Abraham was seen visibly limping as he walked towards the tunnel and now raises doubts over whether he will be fit for Chelsea’s clash against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Last month, Abraham suffered an ankle injury which saw him miss Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United.
Abraham, who has scored 15 goals in 33 games for Chelsea this season, has started just one of his side’s last five matches.
Speaking about his side’s defeat to Bayern, Lampard told BT Sport: ‘The performance was poor and sometimes you have to be brutally honest.
‘They outclassed us in every department and it’s quite sobering. The level of team they are is why they challenge in the Bundesliga and Europe year in year out.
‘I’m disappointed we couldn’t do more against them. We have to take it on the chin and work towards getting back to the levels we want to be at.
‘If you look at the choice of passes they make, our choices have to improve.
‘If our players have a bit about them, which i think they do, they will look at who they were playing against and the level they need to work to.
‘We will always play with pride but I’m more concerned about the bigger picture.
‘How quickly can we recover for the Premier League and how quickly can we get to the level?’
