BBC pundit Garth Crooks believes Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham deserves the plaudits for the performances he is currently putting in for the London club.
The 21-year-old scored his ninth goal of the season against Southampton yesterday, and Crooks thinks the Blues may have a fight on their hands to keep the forward if he continues performing at such a high level:
“Who would have thought that Chelsea fans would be chanting the name of Tammy Abraham in the same manner they used to celebrate Didier Drogba.”
“That is because the young striker is leading the line in a similar manner to the Ivory Coast legend. If Abraham continues to develop at this rate, manager Frank Lampard will have another problem on his hands – keeping him at Stamford Bridge.”
Considering Abraham is Chelsea through and through, it’s highly unlikely that he would leave Stamford Bridge, but you can understand where Crooks is coming from in terms of his level of performances.
The striker’s form at the start of the campaign has been remarkable and tremendous credit has to go to manager Frank Lampard for putting faith in the player.
There is no doubt that Abraham has room to improve, and that’s the scary thing about him, especially when you see how prolific he is in front of goal already.
