Chelsea striker Abraham battling to overcome ankle setback

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is battling to overcome an ankle setback.

Abraham resumed training three days ago as he finally hopes to shrug off the problem which has dogged the second half to his season.

The Sun reports Abraham did not feature in any of his club's seven previous games prior to the international break, hampering his chances of proving himself to new boss Thomas Tuchel.

He has already suffered one setback on the road to recovery when he was forced to abandon training after just five minutes of the warm up.

The injury, which he suffered against Burnley in January, has taken longer than expected to settle down and ruled him out of the England reckoning over the past fortnight.

Abraham, 23, is still a way off full fitness and will not be considered for tomorrow's Premier League clash at home to West Brom.

But it is hoped he can play again within the next two weeks with the possibility of being involved in Chelsea's FA Cup semi final against Manchester City on April 17.
