Chelsea boss Frank Lampard praised his players after the 2-1 win at Watford.

Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic scored again as the Blues chalked up a seventh consecutive away victory.

Lampard joked that Abraham, whose goal was his 10th of the season, had endured a barren spell, having not scored in the previous three games.

On a more serious note, Lampard admitted that Jorginho being suspended for next weekend’s game against Crystal Palace is a “blow”.

Jorginho must serve a one-match ban after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.

Lampard was full of praise for Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, who were outstanding in midfield again.
