Tammy Abraham Becomes England’s Top Goalscorer Since 2018/19 After Brace Against Norwich

​Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has scored more goals than any other English player since the start of last season, taking his tally to 28 after netting twice in the club’s 3-2 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

Battling with the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling as the Three Lions’ best marksman, Abraham had a slow start to the campaign and struggled to find the back of the net in Chelsea’s opening two matches.

But two goals either side of Mason Mount’s effort has seen Abraham become England’s top goalscorer in the top two tiers (including play-offs) since the start of last season.


The 21-year-old has also become the third youngest Chelsea player to score a league double, with Abraham sitting behind only Mark Nicholls and Eddie Newton.

The arrival of new manager Frank Lampard was believed to bring a host of opportunities for Chelsea’s golden generation of academy graduates, offering the likes of Abraham, Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi regular first-team football.

Although the latter is still returning from injury, both Abraham and Mount have featured heavily under Lampard already this season.

Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori have also broken into Chelsea’s first-team on a more regular basis, as Lampard looks to build around a young core of players at Stamford Bridge amid the club’s transfer ban.

The club will look to make it two wins from two when they host Sheffield United next week, while games against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool are on the horizon after the international break next month.
