Tammy Abraham is staying late after training to cement his place as Chelsea’s main striker ahead of rival Olivier Giroud.

The 21-year-old has scored four goals in his last two games and with the added weight of expectation the No9 jersey at Stamford Bridge carries, Abraham is working hard behind the scenes.

Speaking after Saturday’s brace, he said: “I just looked around the stadium and said ‘wow’. I couldn’t believe it. Chelsea fans are amazing. They have always supported me. From a young kid growing up they have always pushed me to get into the first team, and now I am here they have backed me ever since. Hopefully, now we can start getting some wins for them.”

Abraham has enjoyed loan spells at Bristol City, Swansea and Aston Villa over recent seasons.
