Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham showed off his versatile set of skills, as Aston Villa took on Bolton last night, in search of new manager Dean Smith (and assistant to the manager John Terry)’s second win since taking over in mid-October.
It only took only four minutes for Abraham to gather a ball in front of the defense, dummy his marker into giving him more space and then slot in a perfect pass to let Jack Grealish in on goal.
That was Abraham’s first assist of the season to go with his four goals in eleven appearances.
Villa would go on to win 2-0, a welcome result for all concerned. Villa have lost two and (now) won two since the new management team took over on October 10. But least they’re winning matches, something they struggled to do under departed manager Steve Bruce — he’d won just 3 of 12, drawing six.
As for Tammy, he seems to be thriving once again in The Championship, just as he did two seasons ago for Bristol City (26 goals, 4 assists in 48 matches). Long may that continue!
