Chelsea striker Abraham enjoyed playing with Werner for FA Cup win

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says he felt comfortable alongside Timo Werner for victory over FA Cup opponents Luton.

Abraham hit a hat-trick on Sunday, while Werner missed from the spot.

But the England international told the club's website: "I enjoyed it a lot.

"It takes the pressure off me, always making the run in behind and coming to feet. Sometimes it is tough to do too much at once, so playing with Timo, we kind of equalled it out. When he comes short, I come long and we had a good combination in this game. I enjoyed it and hopefully it can carry on like that."

Abraham added: "We drive each other. When one of us scores a goal the others are delighted for him and for me and Timo to be on the pitch together was an honour. I encouraged him and he encouraged me and we got through it. It was unlucky for him not to get a goal as well."
