Batshuayi will start against FA Cup opponents Hull City today.
“He starts tomorrow," Lampard said of the Belgian. "Yes, this is a chance for him.
"We have seen [Abraham's] breakthrough and the consistency of his game, but yes, this is a chance for him and clearly, he certainly has got to take that chance in terms of his all-round game and goals and his overall performance.
"There have been times this season where he has come on and he has made a difference, and that needs to be consistent."
