Alan Shearer has given some pointers to striker Tammy Abraham following the Blues playing against Leicester City, which ultimately ended up in a 2-2 draw.
The principle Chelsea striker once again could not score a goal – this is the third time in the league games. Abraham suffered a hip injury and is back playing, but he is definitely tired out of his mind. Being the only striker Chelsea is reliant on and has named him in every starting XI, Abraham is bound to burn out soon. And the Leicester City draw proves that it is happening already.
“A lot of the time I listen to his manager Frank (Lampard) after games and he says that Chelsea are not killing teams off,” Shearer said of Match of the Day,” said Shearer.
“This is not a criticism of Tammy Abraham because I am a huge fan of his. He has got a massive future in the game and he’s scored 13 league goals this season already, which is a very good return.
“But to get from 15 goals to 25, which he is capable of, you just need a little help and reminding of what the good things to do are.
“There was a very good run from him and Pedro didn’t play him in. You could then see the anger in him and he had his arms up in the air and so he should do because that ball should have gone into him.
“There was a moment when Reece James put the ball in the box and he had to be in control of that situation. He shouldn’t have let Jonny Evans get there first.
“He provided another good run and he needed to go across Soyuncu and not come back inside. He needed more confidence to go on his left foot.
“It’s a really difficult role to play even in his first season in the Premier League like he is. Please don’t take that as a criticism as we are fans of him. But to get to that next level, those are the bits that he needs to improve on.”
