With so many new exciting players currently impressing at Chelsea, it’s been easy to overlook some of the other individuals in the Blues squad at the start of the season.
One man that many feared for going into the new campaign was Tammy Abraham, who is a talented player to come through the club’s academy and he scored 18 goals last season in all competitions during his senior debut year for Chelsea.
The 23-year-old was the first-choice striker for Frank Lampard’s side for a large part of last season, but Chelsea reinforced that area of the pitch in the summer transfer window with the signing of highly-rated German Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.
Werner, 24, has quickly taken his spot as the number one option at striker for the Blues and the speedster has four goals in nine appearances so far.
But Abraham deserves immense credit for the way he’s reacted, and is certainly one player that has gone under the radar at the start of the season despite his contribution.
Abraham has only started in three of his nine appearances this season for Chelsea, but he’s scored two goals and supplied four assists in return.
It would’ve been easy for him to sulk after being dropped to the bench, but he’s continued working hard and most importantly he’s made the most of any minutes on the pitch given to him by manager Lampard.
He set up Christian Pulisic’s goal on Wednesday night in the Champions League group stage win over Krasnodar and his form has been impressive whenever called upon, which is why he deserves praise for his start to the season.
