Tammy Abraham injury: Chelsea striker limps off pitch after draw with Arsenal

Bernd Leno of Arsenal checks on Tammy Abraham of Chelsea after the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC at Stamford Bridge on January 21, 2020 in London, United Kingdom.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard repeated his wish to bring in a new striker after Tammy Abraham limped off with an ankle injury against Arsenal.

Lampard had already made signing an attacker a priority before Abraham clattered into the advertising boards. He played on but had to be helped off the pitch at the end of the game.

"You can't say we will definitely sign a striker but we are looking," he said.

"If you don't score enough goals then you won't win enough games."

Abraham was helped from the field at the end of a 2-2 draw against an Arsenal side who played with 10 men for over an hour and Chelsea do not know how long he will be missing.

"I hope he's not (out for several weeks), but then if he is then yes, we do have the players to cope.

"But we can't finish," he said.

"We get into the box and we could have had three or four goals today. We are having shots, having crosses and lots of 'ooh' moments for the crowd.

"But we have to be clinical. Do we need to put the ball in the back of the net more? Yes. That's clear. Our chance conversion is one of the worst in the league."
