Tammy Abraham’s Future has been in the news for some time, but not because of what he actually did.
Instead, there are rumors that Chelsea are ready to go all out to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland this summer, with the Blues apparently determined to sign a world-class forward ahead of the 2021/22 season. .
Abraham must have responded to those reports when he started Sunday’s FA Cup reunion with Luton Town, and it’s safe to say he did just that.
With some suggesting it could have been a decisive game for Chelsea’s season, Abraham seized the opportunity with an impressive hat trick and a fantastic overall performance in the 3-1 win that showed he was ready for the fight. .
He bagged his first two early on, first with his foot, then with his header, but he also brought the typical all-round style of play we’ve come to expect from Abraham this season.
Whether it was to get closer to the creative players or to engage in a physical battle against Luton’s three center-backs, Abraham was ready to do whatever it took and looked like good value for his three goals. .
There was an energy in his game that was lacking the last time around against Leicester City, and while there was a legitimate argument that Abraham was not against the same quality here, the important thing was that he was redoing the basics. .
It was encouraging to see the 23-year-old charging onto the pitch with real enthusiasm. He followed when needed and always wanted the ball to be played in his feet – an outlet Chelsea haven’t always had in recent weeks.
The next step for Abraham is to do this consistently and do it against the opposition at the top. It’s something Haaland has already perfected, so it’s not hard to see why Chelsea would love the Norwegian.
However, Abraham proved that he deserved the chance to reach this level himself. He has shown real quality and been Chelsea’s best forward this season, and he’s clearly up for the challenge. If Chelsea are to replace him, he won’t fall apart without a fight.
