The link-up play between Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and new signing Kai Havertz was clear to see in the 6-0 bashing of Barnsley.

However, Tammy Abraham has revealed that the understanding with Kai Havertz didn’t come by chance.

According to Tammy, the duo have been working on this in training, and it only paid off naturally during the game.

“We were working on it quite a lot,” explained Tammy. “I would go short towards the ball and Kai would go in behind me, so I knew where he was.

“I had a quick look and he was there waiting, so it was great to see it work out so well.”

Tammy made one clever dummy for the first of Havertz hat-trick, and set up another with a clever heeled pass to the German.

For Abraham, assisting goals could just be fun as well.

He said: “You know sometimes it’s good to assist other people. We’ve not had a lot of time to work together but as you can see, what we tried was paying off and hopefully it can continue like this for us.”

Speaking after the game against the Tykes, Kai Havertz was full of praise for the partnership he had with Tammy Abraham, and even Frank Lampard has hinted that we could get more of that in coming games.
