Watch: Ex-Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scores brilliant goal for Roma


Former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham opened his goalscoring account for Roma with a brilliant strike in their 4-0 win over Salernitana.

Abraham came through the Chelsea academy and established himself in the first team during Frank Lampard’s reign, scoring 15 goals in 34 Premier League appearances in 2019-20.

But he struggled for regular first-team minutes under Thomas Tuchel and fell further down the pecking order following Romelu Lukaku’s arrival.

The England international then completed a £34million move to Jose Mourinho’s Roma and enjoyed a brilliant debut, registering two assists against Fiorentina.

Abraham made his second Serie A appearance against Salernitana and made it 3-0 in the 69th minute, firing home a first-time finish from just inside the area.

“I spoke to Jose and obviously (general manager) Thiago (Pinto) before coming here and they told me the ambition of the club,” Abraham said recently.

“They told me what they want from the club and how they see the club moving forward. I am someone who is very ambitious myself so when I see vision and I believe in the vision and I believe I can help in the vision I give my all.

“I am here to win – I didn’t come here just to play, to score.”
