The star centre-forward of Chelsea, Tammy Abraham was taken off the field in stretchers after picking a knock just before the half-time mark. It was an awkward landing for the young gun and all were in fear that he would now be missing the next few games for the Blues. After the end of the match, Tammy Abraham told that the pain at that moment of injury was unbearable. However, he is now able to walk and the pain is gone. He will have a scan tomorrow to check the extent of the injury.
The Story About The Fitness Of This Chelsea Front-Man
Tammy Abraham has already scored 11 goals this season for the Blues. The young English centre forward is the top scorer in all competitions for Chelsea. So, his presence in the field will certainly be important for the Blues. Michy Batshuyai came as a substitute for Tammy Abraham.
However, he failed to make an impact on the game. The new manager of the Blues, Frank Lampard is not using the experience of Olivier Giroud. He should get some chances at this moment. Otherwise, he will be out to a new club in the winter transfer window.
Chelsea earned a valuable point against Valencia on Wednesday on the fifth game week of the Champions League. It certainly remained as one of the best matches of the group stage of the Champions League this season. The Blues were really lucky to escape with a draw from the home Stadium of Valencia. Maxi Gomez and Rodrigo Moreno missed two open sitters which should have been converted into Goal. On the other hand, Cilessen also made some great saves to keep the home side in the game.
When Will He Be Making His Return From Injury?
Carlos Soler put the home team ahead at the 40-minute mark. However, Chelsea equalised with a brilliantly placed shot of Mateo Kovacic. It was the first goal for Mateo Kovacic for Chelsea in his 71 appearances. Chelsea went ahead at the 53rd minute when Christian Pulisic’s goal was confirmed by VAR.
After that Kepa Arrizabalaga saved a penalty taken by Dani Parejo. Valencia came back in the match with a surprise goal of Dani Wass. He intended to provide a cross. However, it went straight towards the goal. Kepa Arrizabalaga failed to keep it out of the Goal. The match ended with a scoreline of 2-2 after the end of 90 minutes.
The scenario of Group H is now very much interesting. Ajax was able to beat Lille by a margin of 2-0. They are now at the top of the group and will be favourites to top the group. If Ajax wins against Valencia they will certainly reach the pre-quarter-final in the Champions League this season as group toppers.
The equation for Chelsea is also very much clear. If the Blues win the match against Lille on the last matchday of the Group stage they will also qualify as the other team from this group.
Frank Lampard also mentioned the importance of this one point after the end of the match in Spain on Wednesday.
