Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has insisted that he believes Tammy Abraham can force his way back into Chelsea’s first XI.
The English striker was left out of Tuchel’s match squad for last Sunday’s game against the Red Devils.
This has led to countless speculation about Tammy’s future at the London clubs as rumours about a possible transfer resurfaces.
Chelsea are also being strongly linked with a possible summer transfer for Norwegian youngster Erling Haaland, and that may sound as a huge threat to Tammy’s future at Chelsea.
However, Tuchel has revealed he has not given up on the potential of Tammy despite his recent run of form.
Speaking in a recent interview, Tuchel said, “Yes. This is my job to push him to his limits. We will not stop doing this and supporting him.
“It was a tough decision. We have these decisions to make. This is part of my job, which I do not like but at the same time I like it because it means we have everybody available and then we have to take these decisions.” The Gaffer continued.
“We have to cut it down to 18 players in the field. So it (being left out) is not always a punishment or a signal for a player.
“In this case it was not a signal or punishment, it was just a choice from alternatives about who starts and who can come from the bench.” He concluded.
Chelsea face Liverpool next today and the Blues will be hoping to get back to winning ways.
