Cesar Azpilicueta believes Tammy Abraham can lift the Golden Boot
Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta strongly believes his teammate Tammy Abraham can romp to the top of the Premier League scoring charts at the end of the season. According to the full-back, Abraham's work ethic, passion and hunger are sure to fuel his success.
The Blues returned to winning ways against Aston Villa after a run of two consecutive league defeats, with Abraham's contribution proving more vital than anything else. Upon his return from a minor injury, the marksman registered his 11th league goal of the season, before laying it on a platter for Mason Mount to score the eventual match-winner.
Amid fierce competition for the spots, Abraham has emerged and grown into one of the most indispensable players in the Blues' squad - a sign clearly visible during Chelsea's defeat against the Hammers at home.
Only Jamie Vardy has netted more goals this term, and it's safe to say there's no stopping Tammy Abraham at the moment.
Shedding light on his view regarding a possible Golden Boot for the young sharpshooter, the Blues captain remarked:
Tammy doesn’t talk about that. If he scores the most goals, then the team will do better as well. I am confident that he can get many more goals because of the way he is working and improving.
It is amazing and he has the potential to go even higher. With his passion and hunger, he is capable of getting to the top, for sure.
Abraham, besides his goals that have been embellishing his stature as a centre-forward, is known to work his socks off when not in possession and own all-round capabilities. Azpilicueta added on the same, continuing -
But not only is he scoring goals, he is playing for the team, recovering the ball and he made an assist as well.
Abraham would be aiming to add to his tally when Chelsea travel to a sorrowful Goodison Park to lock horns with Everton on Saturday afternoon.Published 05 Dec 2019, 19:01 IST
