Chelsea fans reckon they could be witnessing the second coming of Didier Drogba after Tammy Abraham’s winning goal at the Emirates.
The frontman completed the Blues’ 2-1 comeback with a winner in the 87th minute and proceeded to pull out a celebration that drew plenty of comparisons with Didier Drogba.
The Ivorian scored over 100 goals for Chelsea and made a habit of scoring against their London rivals.
West London has not seen a striker of Drogba’s calibre since his departure, but fans reckon they may be onto something special with Abraham.
“That was 100% intentional from Tammy lmao, you love to see it. New daddy of London,” said one.
“Dread it, run from it, Drogba still arrives,” joked another.
“I also noticed this, haha good touch!” added a third.
“Can you imagine if he turns out even remotely close to Drogba!?!?!?!?” screamed an excited fourth.
Tammy Abraham bagged the winner with three minutes of normal time remaining
Tammy Abraham’s celebration had a whiff of the Didier Drogba about it
Abraham has scored 14 times in 27 outings in all competitions as he enjoys his first full season as Chelsea’s first choice striker.
Frank Lampard has put his faith in the academy graduate and was pleased to see him find the net against a top six rival.
He said: “It will help him for sure. Tottenham last week he showed everything apart from the goals. I get the big six thing from the outside. As he develops he’ll do that even more.
“That’s the beauty of Tammy, he will never hide and constantly be in the box and get hungrier.”
Drogba scored 13 times against the Gunners during his time at Stamford Bridge with eight of those coming in the Premier League.
The Ivorian scored 157 times for the Blues during his glittering career with his 2010 total of 37 his highest.
