Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham stirred a bit of controversy after attending a party with Chelsea teammate Ben Chilwell and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

They were all filmed at Abaraham’s surprise 23rd birthday party at his London home on Saturday evening.

Abraham was unaware that friends and family had planned a surprise birthday party for him, as he clocked 23, and according to The Sun, around 20 people attended the event, which goes against current Government restrictions which do not allow gatherings of more than six people.

A source close to Abraham told The Sun: “He genuinely had no idea it was going to happen.

“He and Sancho didn’t drink alcohol.

“‘It was family and very close friends only – and they even did temperature checks on arrival.”

Abraham, Chilwell and Sancho were all named in the England squad for the upcoming international games, but they won’t be dropped by Gareth Southgate despite the incident.

Abraham has apologised for his actions, and has claimed that it wasn’t his plan.

“I arrived home to find a small surprise gathering,” Abraham told The Sun.

“Though I was totally unaware this was planned, I would like to wholeheartedly apologise for the naivety shown for the organisation and attending of this gathering.

“All I can do now is learn from it, apologise to everyone and ensure it never happens again.”
