Tammy Abraham has told boss Frank Lampard he can rely on him to help fire in the goals to get Chelsea into the Champions League.
The 15-goal forward remains the club’s main striker after Lampard’s January frustrations.
Chelsea had their transfer ban lifted in December but failed to make a single signing last month, despite being linked with Edinson Cavani and Timo Werner.
Olivier Giroud failed to make the bench for Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Leicester with Michy Batshuayi, Chelsea’s other senior striker, an unused substitute.
Abraham is Lampard’s first-choice forward and the England international insisted he can be the one to ease the manager’s striker worries.
“Playing for a club like Chelsea there is always going to be pressure,” he said.
“For me it is about being in the right place at the right time and believing in myself and my abilities as well. I am sure I will score a few more. I like the pressure and I play under pressure.
Abraham did admit he would have welcomed the competition at Stamford Bridge after his impressive first half of the season.
“The players we were talking about coming like Cavani and other top-class strikers who have been around in the game for many years,” he added.
“It would have been nice if he had come. He would have been someone I can learn off and steal his ideas to add to my own.
“It didn’t happen though and for me, it gives me that extra push and desire to claim my position and be as best as I can.”
