Despite Abraham impressing, Chelsea spent £47.5million on Germany international Werner in the summer and also bolstered Lampard’s attacking options with the signings of Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech.
The added competition at Stamford Bridge meant Abraham endured a subdued start to the 2020-21 season but he has forced his way into the team recently, scoring three goals in his last four matches.
Sherwood is ‘pleased’ Abraham has been able to break back into the team as he feared for the Chelsea star’s future over the summer.
‘Frank Lampard seems to have found a balance now,’ the former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager told Premier League productions.
‘Tammy Abraham’s come back in having proved that he can score goals last year.
‘It looked like when they brought in Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, it looked like we were going to see the end of him [Abraham].
‘[Christian] Pulisic was brilliant towards the end of last season, it looked like Tammy might have been pushed to the side, but he’s pushed himself back to the front.
‘I’m pleased to see that because he really is effective.’
‘It works well for Tammy and Werner because Tammy can still stretch teams,’ he said.
‘We’ve seen Werner can come short and get the ball and run it through and progress it through that way.
‘I think that once Tammy gets it even more in respects of holding up play and the linking, and getting the people who play alongside him to just continue to feed him, Tammy will continue to score goals.
‘I think it works perfectly with the way Timo’s playing.’
Chelsea host London rivals Tottenham on Sunday and victory over Jose Mourinho’s team could see them go top.
