(Video) Chelsea loanee scores twelfth goal of the season

We are beginning to get quite accustomed to brilliance from Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham.

He has been one of the breakout stars of this season having already scored 12 goals on loan at Bristol City.

Today, he did it again. This time it was Barnsley who failed to keep him out.

Diego Costa is firmly the first-choice striker at Chelsea, but don’t be surprised to see Abraham return to provide competition at some point in the next few years.

Bridging the gap between the youth setup and the first-team is a feat that no manager has been able to do since Roman Abramovich took over at the club. Many have tried and failed, but Antonio Conte is making genuine steps to be the first. He will be encouraged to see Abraham’s good form, as he has the potential to be the first academy product since John Terry to break into the starting side.
