TAMMY ABRAHAM has bundle of skills in his locker – which has helped him bag seven goals this season.
New Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has trusted academy product Abraham to be his main man up front for the Blues so far this term.
And with seven goals in as many appearances, it appears the decision to snub experienced pair Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi has proven the right one.
A clip on YouTube from 2016 compiling Abraham’s fanciest tricks is further evidence the striker has more than just finishing ability.
The 21-year-old’s seven goals have all come in his last three league games, scoring two doubles, against Norwich and Sheffield United, before a hat-trick against Wolves.
Abraham latched on to a loose ball in the box against at Molineux to grab his first of the game before a header doubled his tally.
But the skill shown in the YouTube compilation was on display for the ex-Aston Villa forward’s third.
Picking up the ball from a Jorginho threaded pass, Abraham held Conor Coady off as he drove into the box.
The inform forward then skipped past Coady and arrowed in past Wolves keeper Rui Patricio.
Lampard praised his No9 for the versatility in goals scored at Molineux.
He said: "I'm so delighted for him. I know how hard the academy works and Tammy has a fantastic approach to the game and how he wants to progress.
"All three goals of his goals were so different, it just shows what he can do."
