Chelsea striker Abraham hails former teammate Solanke

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has spoken of his admiration for former teammate Dominic Solanke.

The former Blues centre-forward could lead Bournemouth's line today against his old club.

Abraham told chelseafc.com: "We have so many good memories together.

"He was the first player I ever met when I came in to Chelsea and we clicked straight away. He was always skilful in the younger age groups and he had the quickest feet you've ever seen!

"I remember he used to play as a winger but we had a good partnership up front. When I saw him doing a certain skill, I wanted to do it as well and we were just like that, always driving each other on. It was nice to have that friendship and bond to play alongside him."
