New, comments

The Chelsea No.9 certainly isn’t lacking in confidence and ambition

Tammy Abraham believes England can go all the way at next summer’s Euro 2020, Chelsea can challenge for the top two in the Premier League, and he can compete for the Premier League Golden Boot. And that he can maintain his current levels not just this season, but well into the future.

But Tammy Abraham doesn’t want to jinx England winning Euro 2020, Chelsea finishing in the top two (or four), or his Golden Boot chances by talking too much about England winning Euro 2020, Chelsea finishing in the top two (or four), or him winning the Golden Boot. Jinxes love it when you talking about such things, and Tammy’s wise to their shenanigans.

“[Next year will hold even] bigger dreams hopefully. Being at the Euros, winning it, top four or top two in the Premier League. Just believing! The sky’s the limit. Hopefully, hopefully, I don’t want to jinx myself.”

“I believe so [that England can win Euro 2020]”

Abraham’s season started with a cruel woodwork against Manchester United and a cruel penalty miss against Liverpool. Those two hits alone could’ve knocked out the 22-year-old and ended his Chelsea first-team dreams before they even started. But Tammy’s gone from strength to strength instead, currently sitting on 10 goals in the Premier League (second only to Jamie Vardy, who has one more) and having now opened his England account as well.

Tammy has proven his goalscoring credentials in two separate Championship seasons already, but it remains to be seen whether he can keep up this pace for a whole Premier League campaign — and many more in the future. He’s of course confident that he can. After all, without said confidence, he’d have no chance of doing so in the first place.

“It’s just about maintaining it, not just for the rest of the season but for many years, hopefully. I’ve always believed in myself to score goals. There’s still a lot in my game I need to develop but I can’t complain. It’s going well.

“There’s going to be a lot of praise, you just have to stay focused, ignore some bits and use some bits to lift my confidence. I’m just going into every game, believe in myself, block everything out and focus. That’s what you need as a player to get to the top level. To always believe, even in tough times.”

Belief. Confidence. And the skills and desire to makes his dreams come true. Chelsea’s No.9, Tammy Abraham!
