Tammy Abraham: Chelsea Striker Plays Down Severity Of Injury
NOV 28, 2019 FOOTBALL NEWS

Tammy Abraham played down the severity of the hip injury that forced him to leave the pitch before half-time during Chelsea's 2-2 draw at Valencia.

The 22-year-old was led away on a stretcher after landing awkwardly on Valencia defender Ezequiel Garay.

He told Chelsea TV: "It's much better than when it happened.

"I was fearful of the worst when it happened but when got into the changing room, I could walkabout. I'll have a scan and hopefully, it's just bruising."

The England forward has scored 12 goals for club and country this season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard added: "It looked quite severe at half-time, a strong bang on the hip, but the word after the game is it might not be as severe as we thought. That's all I know."
