Charlie Nicholas has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by Tammy Abraham’s start to the season with Chelsea FC.

The 22-year-old has found himself as a regular fixture in the first team at Stamford Bridge after Frank Lampard firmly placed his faith in the youngster.

Abraham has started seven of Chelsea FC’s eight Premier League games and he has already netted eight times in the top flight to lead the way at the top of the scoring charts along with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

The England striker will be hoping to continue to keep the likes of Olivier Giroud out of the starting line-up at Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks and months.

And former Arsenal star Nicholas has admitted that he has been highly impressed by what he has seen from Abraham this term.

Asked to pick his player of the season so far, Nicholas told Sporting Life: “It has to be Tammy Abraham for me.

“I did not see his goals coming as regularly as what they are. I see a young Emmanuel Adebayor in him, with his long stretching legs but amazing ability to finish.

“After a game or two, people said he would never make it at Chelsea. I liked what I saw when he was on loan at Aston Villa, so he is the player that has caught my eye the most.

“Mason Mount and James Maddison are close but it has been a breathtaking start to the season for Abraham.”

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

The Blues are currently fifth in the Premier League table as they bid to try and maintain their place in the top four this term.
