Abraham compares Chelsea pal Mount to manager Lampard

Tammy Abraham has compared Chelsea teammate Mason Mount to manager Frank Lampard.

An attacking midfielder like his coach, Mount, 20, has enjoyed a superb breakthrough season, having notched six goals and four assists.

Speaking about Lampard to Chelsea's 5th Stand app, Abraham said: "When we were growing up, him and John Terry were massive for us over in the academy.

"Lampard was always a leader, he always wanted to train the best, be the best. You could see that in his character.

"I see similarities in Mason Mount, you know.

"You can see that he has obviously studied the way the gaffer played and that's huge; because he knows about scoring, he knows about defending, he knows about passing.

"He knows about everything, so it's nice to have a manager with that experience."
