We're taking every day as it comes - Tammy Abraham

We're taking every day as it comes - Tammy Abraham

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has highlighted why new signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are struggling at the club.

Timo Werner and kai Havertz both joined Chelsea from the Bundesliga during the summer both have both been subject to criticism as they have failed to display the kind of form they were at the Bundesliga before joining the London side.

With Chelsea still struggling in the Premier League, Tammy Abraham has highlighted why both players have failed to live up to expectations so far and the progress they are making.

“We have hardly had any time to train together and to work out how each other play so we’re just taking every day as it comes at the moment,” Tammy Abraham told Chelsea's official website.

“Every game we play, we’re learning new things about each other. I’m starting to understand them more and they’re starting to understand me more so hopefully we drive each other and be the best we can be.”

Tammy Abraham has been in brilliant form for Chelsea compared to Timo Werner, the younger star explains how it feels to finally get the chance to showcase his talent at the club following a series of loan moves.

“I dreamt about it as a little boy and I still feel like I’m dreaming today,” Abraham added

“I’ve been at the club since the age of seven so you can imagine how much I’ve always wanted to make it to the top level. I still have to pinch myself now and then when I realise where I am today.

“I think you need the experience of going out on loan as a young kid, playing men’s football at the top level. I was getting kicked and scratched in games and you have to learn that ugly side of football as well. It really prepared me to know what I had to come back and do.

“I had to learn to use my body more because you don’t need it as much as a kid growing up. I learnt about being in the right positions, had to work on my finishing of course, and just try to understand my team-mates more. That’s the main thing I’ve learnt over the years.”

“You have to be hungry and work hard because you see a lot of talent at the younger ages when you’re growing up at Chelsea but we know that talent alone is never enough.

“You have to put in that extra work and work even harder. For me right now, it’s still all about working as hard as I can and trying to be the best I can be.”
