Pat Nevin has praised Tammy Abraham for his ability to score different types of goals after the Chelsea FC striker continued his scoring spree last weekend.

Abraham scored twice in the opening 45 minutes of Chelsea FC’s home clash against Sheffield United to put the west London side in control of the Premier League clash.

However, Frank Lampard’s side squandered their 2-0 lead in the second half to succumb to a 2-2 draw with the promoted side and miss out on a second successive Premier League win.

Abraham, though, emerged from the Premier League clash with a lot of credit as the Chelsea FC youngster continued to silence his critics with a clinical display.

The Blues forward opened his Chelsea FC account with two goals in a 3-2 victory over Norwich City last month after Abraham failed to get on the score-sheet in his first three competitive appearances of the 2019-20 season.

But Lampard’s faith in Abraham has been rewarded given that the striker has now scored four times in his last two games.

Former Chelsea FC winger Nevin heaped praise on Abraham for his prolific form in front of goal.

“It is fabulous that Tammy is continuing his goal-scoring spree and doing it with different types of goals,” Nevin told Chelsea FC’s website.

“Clearly he is no one-trick pony. He is getting the tap-ins and the fine strikes from distance but he is also getting the scruffy ones nicked from defensive mistakes.

“The last category is vital if you are going to get 20 in a season or more in the Premier League. Every top scorer will tell you the same thing; a 40-yard pile driver counts the same as a two-yard mishit as long as it goes over that line.”

Chelsea FC have collected five points from their opening four games under club legend Lampard.

The Blues finished in third spot in the table last term.
