Abraham’s impressive start has seen him equal Marcus Rashford’s highest scoring season
Tammy Abraham just can’t stop scoring this season.
The Chelsea striker has already racked up an impressive 10 goals in the Premier League, which puts him second behind Jamie Vardy in the top-scorer chart.
The 22-year-old’s impressive start to the season has seen him match Marcus Rashford’s best scoring tally in a single Premier League campaign – and he’s done it in just 12 games.
Rashford has only reached 10 goals once in three seasons for Manchester United, with the England international reaching double-digits last season.
It took Rashford 32 games to net five goals in his debut season before bettering that tally by two goals in the 2017-18 campaign.
Abraham’s electric start has earned him a call up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with Montenegro and Kosovo.
While Harry Kane will keep his starting place as captain, Abraham will now jockey for minutes with Rashford.
Abraham broke the deadlock in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday to cap off the Blues’ impressive run going into the international break.
Abraham finished off a fantastic flick from Willian before Christian Pulisic doubled the lead to seal yet another three points for Frank Lampard’s side.
