Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has claimed that he studies three strikers in particular namely Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Roberto Firmino.
He said: “In my spare time I go on Youtube and watch all the best strikers in the world play in this competition, stealing their ideas and adding it to my game.
“I watch so many. Harry Kane, Aguero, Firmino, these are Premier League strikers obviously but also Lewandowski and all sorts and players who have played in this competition before.
“For many of us it is a dream come true, so we don’t want that dream to stop now. We want to keep going, keep pushing, keep doing the best we can and like I said tomorrow we have to just leave it all out on the field.
“Tomorrow is the biggest game of the season so far and you have to let that joy, that childhood dream you’ve always thought of just go for a minute and focus on the game.”
Abraham has surpassed expectations this season and proven to be a huge success at Stamford Bridge despite doubts having been raised over his potential prior to the start of this season. He will most definitely be a strong contender to win the Premier League’s Golden Boot award this season and will provide strong competition to Harry Kane for the England first-choice number nine role going forward.
Abraham’s rise has been interesting
Abraham’s rise has been filled with highs and lows. His potential was first seen during the 2016/17 season whilst on loan with Bristol City as he went on to score 23 goals in the Championship from 41 games. The following season, he spent time on loan with then Premier League club Swansea but failed to make an impression as he went on to score just five goals and was unable to save the Welsh giants from relegation.
Following his struggles with the Swans, Abraham was sent back to the Championship and spent time with Aston Villa. He went on to score an impressive 25 goals from 37 second-tier appearances to help the Villains win top-flight status.
Chelsea’s two-window transfer ban has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. If they were not affected by the ban, it is likely that they would have forked out millions of pounds to recruit a recognized number nine to replace Alvaro Morata who joined Atletico Madrid after a failed stint in West London
The Golden Boot race this season will be interesting
For the first time in the Premier League era, three Englishman in Kane, Jamie Vardy and Abraham will be contenders for the Golden boot this season.
