Tammy Abraham goal Vs Southampton: Watch Abraham’s splendid goal against the Saints in the Premier League to make it 1-0.
Tammy Abraham has been a revelation at Chelsea and has already scored 8 goals in his 8 appearances for the Blues in the league. Thus, signalling his importance at Chelsea so early in his career.
There are expectations around Abraham by Chelsea fans and the English International has once again proved his calibre by scoring a sensational goal against Southampton to give an early lead to Chelsea.
It was in the 17th minute of the game when Callum Hudson-Odoi spotted Abraham making a run ahead and hence he releases the 21-year-old striker ahead of Southampton’s defence line.
I response, Angus Gunn comes ahead of his line to add some pressure at Abraham. However, Abraham instead hooks the ball towards the target, and the ball travels over the line.
Despite the effort of Maya Yoshida trying to clear the ball, the goal was given as the goal-line technology favours Chelsea, and the Blues receive their first success in the game.
Certainly, it was a good finish by Abraham, who is a phenomenal run of form, and with the 8 goals in his kitty, the English striker can contest for the Premier League golden boot if he stays consistent throughout the season.
Watch the goal
Further, the lead was extended by Mason Mount in the 24th minute and this time, he pairs up with Willian to achieve the goal. Thus, Frank Lampard’s young prospects are making some deep impact.
Although Chelsea was later hit by Southampton, as Danny Ings bags a goal for the Saints bringing the game back on, with plenty of time left in the clock.
Chelsea desperately needs to win three points tonight, in order to further vie for the top-4 finish in the league this season.
