The Anglo-Nigerian was in action for the Blues against the Seagulls, and Goal reviews his performance
Tammy Abraham put up a fine performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

After a scoreless first half, the Blues stepped up their game to secure maximum points thanks to goals from Jorginho’s penalty and a strike from Willian.

The game at Stamford Bridge was Abraham’s sixth start for Frank Lampard’s men in the English top-flight this term. He did well combining with Pedro and Mason Mount.

In the 61st minute, a backpass from Dale Stephens was cut out by Abraham who poked an effort towards goal, but Mathew Ryan blocked the effort with his body.

The 21-year-old was a thorn in the flesh of Graham Potter’s men as he recorded five shots, 27 touches and 75% passing accuracy.

Abraham was replaced by Michy Batshuayi in the 83rd minute as Lampard’s team moved up to sixth spot in the English top-flight.

He is expected to be on parade when the one-time European kings host Lille in Wednesday’s Champions League encounter.

Four days later, they travel to St. Mary’s Stadium for a date with Southampton.
