Is Abraham good enough for Chelsea? Maybe not, but when will they find out?

The guys respond to your tweets about Tammy Abraham, Milan’s loss to Inter and Manchester City’s dominant start. Tammy Abraham might have been Chelsea’s saviour — a young forward who could have galvanised a club searching for answers as hopes of retaining last season’s Premier League title fade. But he can’t be. Not this season, at least. Abraham, just older than Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, is on loan at Swansea City for the 2017-18 campaign, and the 20-year-old has scored four league goals in eight matches. His parent club Chelsea, meanwhile, are praying that a hamstring problem for Alvaro Mortata, one of only two main strikers in the team now Diego Costa has departed, will only be a short-term issue. As Chelsea sit nine points behind lea...
