Frank Lampard admits he was impressed with Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham as Chelsea sealed a 4-0 win against St Patrick’s in Dublin on Saturday.

Chelsea continued their pre-season preparations with a comfortable victory as Olivier Giroud scored twice, while there were also goals for Mason Mount and Emerson Palmieri.

Batshuayi and Abraham, who both left Chelsea on loan last season, started the match in attack but couldn’t find the target, although they both had excellent chances to score.

But Lampard had a positive message for the pair as they look to convince the new Chelsea boss that they are capable of holding down a first-team spot this season.

‘The negative is that we should’ve scored more goals,’ Lampard told Chelsea TV after the match.

‘I thought some of our build-up play and combinations from midfield and around their box was fantastic, really enjoyable to watch, so there are positives.
