Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has backed Tammy Abraham to make the cut for the England national team if he continues to impress for the Blues.
The 21-year-old netted a brace in Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Norwich, as the Blues netted their first Premier League win of the season.
Praising Abraham for his performance, Sutton said,
“I thought Chelsea were very good. You talk about England and I think the interesting one is Tammy Abraham. I know it’s early days but I thought he was very good.”
“You talk about England and I think the interesting one is Tammy Abraham. I know it’s early days but I thought he was very good.”
” When you think of England strikers you’d say shoe-in Rashford and Kane but then you start to think.”
“Could Abraham push Callum Wilson? Yeah, I think he could. Frank Lampard seems to have great faith in Abraham, getting the nod over Giroud.
“I was impressed with Abraham at the weekend. It’s a big season for him and the fact that he has Frank’s backing, good mobility and no doubt he took both goals fantastically.”
Tammy Abraham will be under the spotlight yet again as Chelsea host Sheffield United this week.
