Prior to the game against West Ham, Tammy Abraham had not played for the past two months, with Thomas Tuchel giving game time to Timo Werner and Kai Havertz upfront.
The 23-year-old still remains Chelsea’s top scorer and was a key figure under Frank Lampard, but he hasn’t really been fancied by the new manager, who had complained about his quality and lack of confidence.
Ahead of the Hammers clash, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson had revealed that it was time to give Tammy Abraham a chance in the team, insisting that the young striker has a good attitude.
“I don’t know Tammy Abraham, but I’ve watched him play over his career,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“The one thing, he has got a good attitude. I’m not seeing him in training as one of them kids who you think, ‘Oh, he ain’t trying in training’.
“His attitude is spot on. Even when he made the mistake with the party that time, he was very sorry about it. He’s got a good attitude.
“He should be given a chance. That’s the problem with Chelsea, they will never be successful again if they don’t get a goalscorer in that football team.
“They won’t blow anyone away, for how great they are and they dominate football matches, they don’t score enough goals.”
