5 Chelsea wonderkids who could light up Stamford Bridge

At just 18 years old, Abraham literally stands taller than other players in his age group. A tall, leggy striker, he is a prolific goalscorer at youth level and the third top scorer in the Uefa Youth League this season with eight goals.

He operates ahead of the attacking midfield trio as a kind of target man but possesses pace to get in behind a defence and has an excellent first touch. One long chipped pass was brought down superbly on the edge of the PSG box, though his finishing was found unusually wanting as he lifted his shot over the bar with the goal at his mercy.

Across all youth age levels (Under-18, Under-19, Under-21) Abraham has scored 46 goals in 42 games and 19 substitute appearances this season. Last season he scored four, helping Chelsea to win their first Uefa Youth League trophy and FA Youth Cup.

At Under-18 level, Abraham has scored an astonishing 32 goals in 26 games. Though his decision making let him down a couple of times in the final – one quick counter-attack came to an end when a chipped pass to send a team-mate one-on-one with the keeper was sent back to the defence – but his ability to control and then hold up the ball was impressive. These attributes and his phenomenal scoring record suggest Chelsea might have a gem.
