Chelsea and Manchester United academy graduates Tammy Abraham and Marcus Rashford seem to have a little competition going between them this season, and they are both in good form for their respective clubs.

Abraham scored his 13th goal of the season as Chelsea defeated Lille 2-1, and the Chelsea striker continues to prove how good he can be.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Tammy Abraham’s desire to always be in the box and admits that it’s something Rashford doesn’t always do.

“He’s going to score a tremendous amount of goals because what he does is he wants to be in between the sticks, he wants to be in the centre of the goals to score goals,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“He’s somebody who’s hungry and got a desire to score.

“It’s a very good finish, it’s clean and clinical. He makes it look easy, it’s not an easy finish.

“What I love about Tammy is his first instinct, his first thought is ‘get me in there, get me in there to hurt the opposition, get me in there to score goals’.

“It’s the positioning, some people will tell [Marcus] Rashford to get in that position and he’ll score five, six, seven, eight goals a season more.

“This kid here, that’s all he wants to do, that’s an element of his game that doesn’t need working on. He’s scored goals at every level and he’s brought it into the first team.”
