Tammy Abraham reveals toughest defender he has faced

Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, has named Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, as the central defender he fears most.

Abraham currently tops the Premier League scoring charts, having struck eight times for his club already this season.

But he failed to score in a 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool at the end of last month, when he came face to face with Van Dijk.

Abraham told reporters: “He’s a beast. He’s just good at what he does. He’s experienced. I try to do a little… I try to use my tricks in my head but his understanding of the game is top drawer.

“It is to do with little things. Movement. My movement in the box, some defenders don’t pay attention to me – they are only focussed on the ball.

“With him, it’s kind of both, he’s paying attention to me and the ball, knows where I am, knows where I want to go, follows me.

“It’s quite annoying for a striker – just leave me alone!”
