Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is set to be fit to face his former club Aston Villa on Wednesday night, according to a report.

The Telegraph have claimed that Abraham is ‘likely to return’ against his former club after picking up a knock during Chelsea’s Champions League clash against Valencia last week.

It resulted in him missing Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham over the weekend, as it seems that he is being nursed back to full fitness.

Last season, Abraham helped Villa earn promotion to the Premier League, as he played a starring role for Dean Smith’s side.

There’s no doubt that the away fans will give Abraham a warm welcome, and it wouldn’t surprise many if he sticks the ball into the back of the net.

They will be well aware of what Abraham is capable of, especially from inside the penalty area because that is his strength.

It will be a very interesting battle between the two because there surely would have been some interesting battles on the training ground between the two.

Ezri Konsa, who is set to be Mings’ centre-back partner, will also know a little about Abraham because he would have come up against him last season when the Villa summer signing was playing for Brentford.
