After a summer of spending at Stamford Bridge the future looks an extremely exciting time to be a Blue – despite the rather shaky early results!
With the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz brought into the fold it seems Frank Lampard’s intentions and expectations are very high. It is clear a fourth place finish is no longer acceptable.
But, do we have the man to take us to glory on our own front door step all along?
Tammy Abraham has been at Chelsea since he was 6 years old and the his dreams of a first-team stint came true last season. After a successful spell on loan at Aston Villa where he scored 26 goals in the Championship, Tammy set the Premier League alight with seven goals in the first five games including a hat trick away at Wolves. His season continued to impress but his lack of Premier League experience did became apparent by the end. Tammy Abraham ended the season on 15 Premier League goals – the highest at the club.
Now with the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and a resurgent Olivier Giroud, Abraham’s playing time seems like it’s going to be rather more restricted. Chelsea started this season brightly away at Brighton with a win whilst Tammy featured only 15 minutes towards the end and again the same in the defeat to Liverpool.
Carabao Cup time, surely a time for Tammy to impress ? And boy did he! With 2 assists for Kai Havertz first senior hat trick, Tammy also got on the score sheet twice showing a level of maturity and awareness we hadn’t seen from the England man. His dummy for Kai’s second goal proving they could have a good partnership blossoming. This earned him a start against West Brom, and again he netted a crucial equalising goal.
Tammy Abraham is making a statement.
There is no doubting his work rate off the ball and physical strength on it, and people only question whether he is the right man to get 25/30 goals every season. I believe he has the right attitude and talent to go very far for Chelsea.
Only time will tell.
