Tammy Abraham equals Marcus Rashford’s best ever goal return in a Premier League season… in just 12 games

By | 9th November 2019

TAMMY ABRAHAM’S 52nd minute strike set Chelsea on their way to their eighth win in 12 Premier League games under Frank Lampard.

It also saw the 22-year-old amazingly reach double figures in the Premier League already.

Tammy Abraham has already equalled Rashford’s best PL tally for a season… in just 12 games

And with it, Chelsea’s number nine has also equalled England team-mate Marcus Rashford‘s BEST EVER Premier League tally in a whole season.

Rashford bagged ten goals in 33 league matches last season.

This means that Abraham has reached the tally in 21 fewer appearances.

The prolific Blues marksman was rumoured to be leaving Stamford Bridge while Maurizio Sarri was at the helm.

But after the arrival of Lampard and 26 goals banged in at Aston Villa last season, the youngster was finally handed a chance at Stamford Bridge.

And the academy graduate hasn’t looked back, currently jointly leading the Prem goal charts alongside fellow Englishman Jamie Vardy.

Rashford, meanwhile, has endured a mixed start to the season.

Also 22, the Manchester United academy graduate has been an established member of the Red Devils’s first-team squad for over three years.

And while he made a blistering start to life in the Old Trafford limelight.

His goalscoring record has fallen to 53 in 186 games – and average of well under one goal every three games.

And Abraham already has double Rashford’s league tally for the current season, despite Rashford already having 36 England caps at the same age.

Both men will be vying for a place in Gareth Southgate’s England lineup for next summer’s European Championships.
