- Tammy Abraham missed Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat by Manchester United on Monday
- Abraham was unable to train in the run-up to United collision due to an ankle injury
- He is now back and ready to lead the line against London rivals Tottenham
Chelsea has received an injury boost for their London derby against Tottenham because Tammy Abraham is expected to be fit after overcoming an ankle beat.
The Chelsea striker missed his 2-0 defeat by Manchester United on Monday, but he was in full training for Saturday’s collision at Stamford Bridge.
The times report Abraham, who has 13 Premier League goals to his name, was taken out of training as a precaution in the run-up to their competition conflict with Manchester United and he did not recover on time.
Tammy Abraham is expected to come back into action for the collision of Chelsea with Tottenham
The news of his return will delight manager Frank Lampard if Michy Batshuayi didn’t take his chance against the Red Devils.
The Belgian lost two chances in the first half, while the goal of Olivier Giroud was rightly excluded from VAR when Manchester United prevented 2-0.
Tottenham has its own injury problems, because Harry Kane and Son Heung-min suffer from hamstring and arm respectively.
