Despite leaving the club for Roma during the summer transfer window, Tammy Abraham remains highly thought of among Chelsea fans.

The striker graduated through the Blues’ academy system and spent two seasons in and around the first team before Thomas Tuchel’s purchase of Romelu Lukaku all but ended his ambitions of being the club’s top striker.

In his time at Chelsea, Abraham scored 30 goals in 82 appearances and provided 12 assists, while he also won the Champions League.

Brought to the Stadio Olimpico by Jose Mourinho to replace an Inter Milan-bound Edin Dzeko, Abraham has arrived with a point to prove. The 23-year-old has scored two goals in five Serie A appearances and provided two assists in that time too.

His latest strike came on Thursday night when Udinese travelled to the Italian capital. Using all his striking instincts, Abraham timed his approach into the six-yard box to perfection to creatively flick home a Riccardo Calafiori cross.

As he has tended to since arriving in Rome, Abraham wheeled away in passionate celebration, punching the air and shouting into the sky.
