According to Manchester United legend Gary Neville, Chelsea have our very own version of Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino in Tammy Abraham.

Neville believes Abraham is crucial to how Chelsea plays but doesn’t score enough goals just like Firmino at Liverpool.

Speaking on Sky’s Monday Night Football, Neville said: “He’s got to get 12-15 goals.

“He’s not going to 25 goals, but the pressure will come on him when people say ‘Chelsea need a goalscorer’.

“I know they’ve got Werner who will score from wide areas, but when the centre-forward isn’t scoring 15 goals, 20 goals a season, he’ll come under pressure.

“He’s got to get those goals early in the season. I think there’s a massive relief there on his face when doing that interview.

“I mean he could be the Firmino. You see Firmino at Liverpool who does sometimes get questioned a little bit for not getting enough goals.

“But I don’t think from anyone who knows football questions him and what he brings then the other two get more plaudits and score goals.

“But he does a lot of work for the team that obviously supports that.”
