Tammy Abraham showed that he remains very much a Chelsea favourite after engaging in a Twitter exchange with Callum Hudson-Odoi following the Blues’ win over Tottenham on Sunday.
Chelsea’s dominance in London derbies at Stamford Bridge continued with a win of 2-0 on Sunday.
Hakim Ziyech’s stunning 25-yard strike nestled into the top corner to hand the hosts the lead in the second half before Thiago Silva headed home from a Mason Mount free-kick.
The Blues had lost just once in their 38 previous meetings with Spurs at Stamford Bridge. They were rarely bothered except by a Harry Kane goal. VAR credited Kane for a foul on Thiago Silva.
Hudson-Odoi shared the customary message, which comes after Chelsea beat Tottenham in Stamford Bridge. “London is blue,”With a blue heart Emoji
Just hours after scoring in Roma’s 4-2 win over Empoli, it is clear Abraham was keeping a close eye on the Chelsea result — and the England international could not resist issuing a cheeky response.
The 24-year-old replied, “It always was.”
The England international finally left the club for Roma in a £34million deal in July, ending his 17-year association with the club he joined as a young boy.
Thomas Tuchel has frozen Abraham, after Abraham made only seven substitute appearances last season under the German flag.
But that clearly hasn’t stopped the striker from keeping track of the Blues’ success from afar after heading to Italy for the next chapter in his career.
Naturally, the exchange between Chelsea’s two Cobham favourites was met with a delighted response from the Chelsea faithful on social media.
Hajir, a fan who shared the thoughts and feelings of hundreds upon hundreds of blues, told Abraham: “This is why I love you.”
Another Twitter user suggested that the Blues should feel regret for letting Abraham go: “Can’t believe we threw you away for Lukaku. A proud Chelsea boy who loves this team,”They wrote.
And one even pledged to crowdfund his transfer fee to return to Stamford Bridge: ”Tammy I’ll put £20 towards your buyback clause.”
It might take a fair few £20 notes to get Abraham back, given his release clause is estimated to be around £80m in 2023, and the striker is enjoying life with 15 goals for the Giallorossi this season.
But it is clear that Chelsea fans are keen to see one of their most successful graduates back in a blue shirt one day — and his love for the club remains despite his heavy-hearted exit.
