(Reuters) - Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham faces a late fitness test before Wednesday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa as the 22-year-old recovers from a hip issue, manager Frank Lampard said on Tuesday.

Wednesday’s match will mark the first time former Chelsea captain and current Villa assistant manager John Terry returns to Stamford Bridge as an opponent.



We spoke last week, we’re regularly in conversation, but both working hard on our jobs.” Fourth-placed Chelsea are looking to return to winning ways following defeats by champions Manchester City and West Ham.



“We’re giving (Abraham) every opportunity to play tomorrow,” Lampard told a news conference.

England international Abraham, who is Chelsea’s top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions, sustained the injury after falling awkwardly in his team’s 2-2 Champions League draw at Valencia last week.

Although Abraham played down concerns over the injury, he missed Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat by West Ham United last Saturday, with his replacement Olivier Giroud looking rusty.

“It’s more about John and the reception he’ll quite rightly get from Chelsea fans - greatest captain, won everything,” Lampard said.
