Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has had a decent first season with the Blues, scoring an impressive 15 goals in 34 club appearances before the football season was suspended.

Tammy Abraham’s form dropped before the league was shut down due to injury, but he has revealed that he’s raring to go, ahead of next month’s resumption, and he can’t wait to get back to his scoring ways.

“I miss football,” he said. “I just miss scoring goals, seeing the fans and being with my team-mates, having a smile on my face. If it’s safe to do so, I want to finish the job. If not, then we go into the next season.”

Abraham admitted that he has been keeping fit during the lockdown, but revealed that it can’t match the same intensity like being out on the pitch.

“I’ve stayed in good shape,” the striker went on. “I’m a young lad and I don’t feel I ever lose fitness. If there was a game tomorrow, I’d say I’m ready but I know a 90-minute game is different to going on the bike and doing 20 minutes or 30 minutes outside running. The tempo is different. You need a few sessions.

“There’s a lot of competition,” he says of working with his younger brother. “We spend time together in the gym and play football together in the garden. We’re working on our technique and first touch. He’s 19 and working much harder than I did at his age but he has a long way to go. He doesn’t beat me on the teqball table [a combination of football and table tennis]. He doesn’t even come close!”
