Former Blue Tammy Abraham has had his say on Chelsea’s dominant 2-0 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Chelsea secured their fourth win over Spurs, having beaten Antonio Conte’s men twice in the Carabao Cup semifinal twice earlier this month.
Hakim Ziyech’s outstanding goal opened the score two minutes after the break, before Thiago Silva’s headed home after a brilliant free-kick from Mason Mount and doubled Chelsea’s lead.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, who made an impact with an assist from his favourite left winger role, wrote on Twitter after the game: “London is Blue.”
Abraham responded to the tweet, saying: “It always was”.
The 24-year-old left Chelsea to join Roma last summer as the Blues brought in Romelu Lukaku in a club-record deal.
Among the reactions to Abraham’s tweet, several Chelsea fans made it clear that they would like to see the young striker return to the club — and this might actually happen in the future.

According to a report from The Athletic, Chelsea inserted an €80million (£67m) buy-back clause in the transfer deal with Roma.
The England international has already had 10 goals and three assists in Serie A so far, which is quite impressive given he had to adapt to a completely new environment.
Obviously, it is unlikely that Chelsea would make another big investment on another striker while Lukaku is still at the club, but in three, four years, the buy-back clause could be an attractive option.
