Tammy Abraham put in an industrious performance against Barnsley, which earned him the man of the match.
The 23-year-old was at the right place and at the right time to tap in Reece James assist, in what was the only goal of the game.
Speaking at the end of the match, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel didn’t only praise Abraham for his goal, but he was also pleased with Reece James and Billy Gilmour for their work leading up to the goal.
“Clearly he made the difference,” Tuchel said on Abraham after the game, “but with the strike you cannot leave out the pass from Billy Gilmour, you cannot leave out the run from Reece James, so it was a very nice goal where he was at the end of a very good combination.
“But yes, he scores decisive goals in cup games and that is good for him because for the strikers it is most important to score. And of course the stop on the line was crucial at that moment.”
