Lampard delighted with Chelsea strikers Abraham and Giroud

Frank Lampard is delighted to have two in-form strikers at Chelsea.

Lampard decided to replace Olivier Giroud with Tammy Abraham for Monday's win over West Ham United.

The Englishman netted twice in the 3-0 victory, giving Lampard a welcome selection headache.

"It's good for his confidence clearly," Lampard said of Abraham. "You have to work for your goals and he worked for them today because he put a lot of effort in. I wanted him to be a handful and to have energy and move the backline which he did.

"Oli Giroud has been doing it for us in his own way and scoring goals so it was a decision more on the opposition today to play Tammy and I was pleased with how he did."
