Chelsea’s transfer ban by a FIFA-imposed in 2019-20 campaign saw a host of Blues academy products handed a starting berth by new boss Frank Lampard.
Amongst those youngsters was Tammy Abraham, who had played a key major role in Aston Villa promotion back to English Premier League.
The 22-year-old England international scored 26 goals and contributed three assists in 40 appearances for Aston Villa in 2018-19 campaign and he was awarded special recognition award due to his remarkable performers at Villa Park.
Before heading to Villa Park in 2018, Abraham had previously loaned to Championship side Bristol City and he was impressive during his loan spell with Bristol City.
Abraham, who was 19 that time, ended the campaign as the Championship’s second highest goalscorer with 23 goals, making him the highest scoring teen in the 20-year history of the competition.
And he has added another record to his collection, taking home all three major honours at the club’s end of season award ceremony. The Englishman won the Top Scorer award as well as being named both Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year.
Despite his very limited experience with the Blues, though, Abraham was tasked, for the most part, with being Chelsea’s number one source of goals by Frank Lampard.
The 22-year-old has starting 2019-20 campaign in remarkable form as he netted 15 goals and contributed five assists in all competitions for Chelsea before lockdown.
But since resumption of the campaign, the England international has struggled in front of goals as he managed three goals in all competitions.
And despite the 22-year-old England international had a couple of rough patches during the season, Abraham was still a pretty solid asset for the Londoners.
The hitman netted 15 goals and contributed four assists in 34 Premier League outings this past term as well as bagging three goals and one assist in eight Champions Legate ties.
