Gary Lineker heaped praise on Tammy Abraham for a brilliant finish in Chelsea FC’s 2-1 victory over Watford on Saturday night.

The Blues were looking to make a return to winning ways following their 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the League Cup fourth round on Wednesday night.

Chelsea FC made an early breakthrough when Abraham got on the end of Jorginho’s pass to give the visitors a fifth-minute lead.

Abraham’s goal was his ninth of the Premier League campaign as the 22-year-old continues to establish himself in the Chelsea FC team.

Former Spurs forward Lineker was full of praise for Abraham after his finish in Chelsea FC’s 2-1 win against Watford at Vicarage Road.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: “That’s as delicious a pass as you’ll see this season from Jorginho. Lovely finish too from Abraham. 👌🏻”

United States international Christian Pulisic scored a hat-trick in a 4-2 win against Burnley at Turf Moor in his last league outing.

And Pulisic netted his fourth goal in two games to give the west London outfit a 2-0 lead against their London rivals in 55th minute.

Gerard Deulofeu halved the deficit from the penalty spot but Chelsea FC held on to secure three points.

Match Of The Day host Lineker was impressed with Chelsea FC’s performance.

Lineker posted on social media: “Chelsea are looking very good. Playing some mouth-watering football.”

Chelsea FC moved to within two points of second-placed Manchester City thanks to their 2-1 victory over Watford.

The Blues have a six-point cushion over fifth-placed Arsenal after the Gunners drew 1-1 with Wolves at The Emirates on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s side will return to Champions League action with a home clash against Ajax at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
