LAMPARD WARNS ABRAHAM, TOMORI  AGAINST COMPLACENCY  AFTER ENGLAND CALL-UP

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has told  Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori  that they must raise their game even more and not rest on their oars after earning call-up to the England team.

Abraham and Tomori  have enjoyed excellent season so far with the Blues, earning recognition from Gareth Southgate in the latest England squad for this month’s internationals.

Lampard, a former England midfielder, is thrilled to see the pair get international  recognition, but he does not want them to lose focus on their Chelsea form.

“I spoke to them before, I was aware of the call-up coming,” Lampard explained at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

‘They’ve got big smiles on their faces today, the three of them – plus Ross [Barkley]. Ross has been there obviously a while.

“But they’re very smiley and happy and I might have to remind them, come Sunday [Southampton vs Chelsea], they need to perform for us. Because it’s great news for them, it’s great news, but as I keep saying, it’s just the start.”
