Tammy Abraham is loving life down in the Championship.
After leaving Chelsea in the summer for Aston Villa, Abraham started fairly slow for the Championship giants.
But November saw the England Under-21 striker hot up, scoring six goals in four games.
That included an astounding game against Nottingham Forest where Abraham scored four goals in a 5-5 thriller.
Abraham beat out Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki – scorer of five goals – Nottingham Forest’s Joe Lolley – who scored twice and added four assists – and Middlesbrough goalkeeper Darren Randolph – proud owner of the best defensive record in the division.
He is clearly not a stranger to awards in the Championship, after winning Bristol City’s Player of the Season two seasons ago having scored 26 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions.
Following Chelsea’s striker problems, fans have been calling for Abraham to be recalled in January.
However, Aston Villa manager Dean Smith he should remain in the Midlands to develop.
Also, it is more fitting with Chelsea’s philosophy to buy a big name striker rather than give a youth player a shot.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to the news of Abraham’s award:

BRING HIM BACK. In fact, bring back Batshuayi as well.
Abraham/Batshuayi > Morata & Giroud. Not even a debate.
