Tammy Abraham revealed that he wanted to get subbed off at half time during the match against Wolves earlier this season but Fikayo Timori urged him to stay on and he went on to score a hat trick on the day.
Tammy Abraham said “It was one of those feelings where you score in two consecutive games so you’re not under pressure to score. In my head I felt there was no pressure, Fikayo [Tomori] had already scored a banger, then my first chance came and I took it. Then there was another one and I scored again, so we were in a great position at half-time. I said to Fikayo, ‘I’m tired, man, I might just tell the manager to replace me’. Fik was like: ‘Stay on the pitch, try and get your hat-trick’ because it was the second game in a row I’d scored two goals. I came out for the second half and then I just remember I was one-on-one with Conor Coady and the confidence that I had inside me took the tiredness away. I did that skill to get away from him and scored and then after the game me, Mason [Mount] and Fikayo were all talking and realising that we’d all just scored for Chelsea in the Premier League, so it was crazy and amazing feelings that day.”
