After being put through on goal against Liverpool on Sunday, Tammy Abraham opted to shoot instead of pass to Mason Mount who was in a better position to score.

Abraham missed the chance and Mount was understandably angry.

According to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Hasselbaink was pleased Tammy showed that single-mindedness and hunger to try to score himself instead of teeing up Mason.

“There was also another moment that was painful to watch,” Nevin told Chelsea’s official website.

“When Tammy was through on goal, in retrospect he should have cut it across to Mason Mount for an easy tap-in.

“Usually I would be angry with the player who didn’t pass in those circumstances, even if he is a centre-forward, but Tammy has been on fire of late and probably hadn’t even considered the possibility of not scoring.

“It is very strange, I was having a laugh with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink this week on the analysis for Chelsea TV, about him doing exactly the same thing! Jimmy half apologised but didn’t need to, he scored on the clip we were looking at.

“Mason was understandably miffed for a moment, because he knew that he should have got the pass and another goal added to his tally.

“That might have changed the nature of the game and possibly even the final result. He also knows that strikers do not always think the way the rest of us do.

“Jimmy, a classic striker, was probably pleased Tammy showed that single-mindedness and hunger to try to score himself instead of teeing up Mason.”
