Lampard was criticized following Abraham’s poor showing against Manchester United on the opening day.

Abraham also missed a spot-kick in the penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.

Shockingly, Jose Mourinho was part of the critics who felt that Mount and Abraham underperformed in the game against Man Utd. Lampard however, hit back at his former manager, citing that he (Lampard) doesn’t care about what anyone else thinks.

Mount and Abraham have gone on to repay Lampard for the great confidence he had in them.

It’s clear that Lampard is hoping to build a strong core around these Chelsea youngsters.
