Premier League

See what Abraham was doing in training that made Chelsea fans blast him

Chelsea will face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and they are already getting themselves ready for the game. As the team keep preparing for the huge encounter, a picture of Tammy Abraham and N'Golo Kante during Friday's training session was posted online and it has sparked a specific reaction from Chelsea fans.

Chelsea's center-forwards haven't really performed as expected this season. Abraham, Giroud and Werner all have 15 Premier League goals combined which is the same number of goals Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes has in the league. Liverpool's Salah has already bettered that figure with 17 league goals.

Abraham, nevertheless, is Chelsea's top scorer in EPL this season with 6 goals, and he is also the team's highest goalscorer in all competitions with 12 goals. He has enjoyed playing time under Thomas Tuchel and has started in the Blues' last 2 league matches. After being unused in the 1-0 win against Atletico Madrid in mid-week, the striker could be handed a place in the starting 11 by Tuchel on Sunday.

But after seeing this particular picture of him and Kante in training on Friday, fans have critized him for being only active in training and not in matches.

In this picture, Abraham holds off Kante to prevent him from getting the ball. This is what Chelsea fans believe he only does in training but can't do it on the pitch on match days. He hardly shields the ball or use his physicality well to help the team. And most times, he is often dispossessed in attack. Fans have urged Tuchel not to start him against Man United.

Here are some of the reactions -
