Abraham has scored almost a third of Chelsea’s goals this season.
The striker could be set for a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
Chelsea must decide whether to stick or twist in the transfer market.
It has not been a particularly positive month for England strikers. In late December, Tottenham’s Harry Kane suffered a hamstring injury that could keep him out until next season. Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford recently joined his international colleague on the sidelines. And now Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham faces an anxious wait to discover the severity of his ankle knock.
The Chelsea frontman sustained the injury after crashing into the advertising hoardings at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. That was just one part of a frustrating evening for the Blues. They could only draw 2-2 with an Arsenal team that played the majority of the match with 26 men.
Rival teams have eaten into Chelsea’s lead in the race for fourth. Frank Lampard can ill-afford to be without his star striker for a sustained period. If Abraham is indeed ruled out for several weeks, Chelsea must sign a replacement in the transfer market, before the January st deadline.
