Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has so far had a productive season, with 13 Premier League goals to his name already this season.

Despite Abraham’s decent goalscoring record, his overall gameplay still needs improvement and he also needs to improve his scoring abilities as he tends to miss more than he scores.

Premier League legend Alan Shearer has now sent a piece of advice to help Abraham after he fluffed his lines against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

“A lot of the time I listen to his manager Frank after games and he says that Chelsea are not killing teams off,” Shearer said on BBC’s Match of the Day.

“This is not a criticism of Tammy Abraham because I am a huge fan of his. He has got a massive future in the game and he’s scored 13 league goals this season already, which is a very good return.

“But to get from 15 goals to 25, which he is capable of, you just need a little help and reminding of what the good things to do are.

“There was a very good run from him and Pedro didn’t play him in. You could then see the anger in him and he had his arms up in the air and so he should do because that ball should have gone into him. There was a moment when Reece James put the ball in the box and he had to be in control of that situation. He shouldn’t have let Jonny Evans get there first.

“He provided another good run and he needed to go across Soyuncu and not come back inside. He needed more confidence to go on his left foot.

“It’s a really difficult role to play even in his first season in the Premier League like he is. Please don’t take that as a criticism as we are fans of him. But to get to that next level, those are the bits that he needs to improve on.”
