Garth Crooks has once again heaped praise on Tammy Abraham for the Chelsea FC striker’s prolific form as the BBC Sport pundit picked him in his team of the week.

The 22-year-old has been excellent for the Blues so far this season and he has already scored eight goals in the Premier League for Frank Lampard’s men.

Abraham scored Chelsea FC’s opening goal in their 4-1 win at Southampton on Saturday as the Blues secured an all-important three points to lift them up into fifth place in the table.

The young England striker has been earning plenty of praise for his performances this season and he will be hoping to continue to hold down a regular spot in the first team.

And Crooks has admitted that he has been highly impressed by what he has seen from the striker in a Chelsea FC shirt so far this term.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Crooks said: “It was the great Jimmy Greaves who said that football is a funny old game.

“Well, who would have thought that Chelsea fans would be chanting the name of Tammy Abraham in the same manner they used to celebrate Didier Drogba?

“That is because the young striker is leading the line in a similar manner to the Ivory Coast legend.

“If Abraham continues to develop at this rate, manager Frank Lampard will have another problem on his hands – keeping him at Stamford Bridge.”

Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 19 October.

The west London side are aiming to maintain their spot in the top four this season after they finished third and won the Europa League last term.
