Tammy Abraham has given an insight into how Chelsea turned their recent form around with a comprehensive win against Burnley at the weekend.

The Blues had lost three and drawn one of their previous seven Premier League games, but made it two wins on the bounce on Saturday as Abraham inspired the west London club to a 3-0 victory.

And the England international has claimed that hard work and enjoyment in training has been key to their upturn in results.

“We know our home form wasn’t too great and we had to make it right,” the goalscorer told their official website.

“Coming off the back off Arsenal and drawing at Brighton, we knew we had to give a performance, especially for our home crowd, working hard every training day up to this game. It paid off.

“As you could see, we enjoyed ourselves out there. We had to give a performance and that’s what we did. We worked in training at getting in the box, creating chances, different movements, and we did that in the game. Hopefully it continues.

“We wanted to score goals, everyone wanted to score – I should have had a hat-trick myself. On another day we score more goals in the game. That’s what we have to build on. This is one win, but we still have a lot of games to go.”

Frank Lampard’s side now face Newcastle and Arsenal in a vital January for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
