Tammy Abraham opens the scoring against Barcelona 🔥

After a successful loan spell at Aston Villa, culminating in a dramatic playoff win to help guide the Championship side back to the Premier League, a lot has been made of the future of Tammy Abraham.
Scoring in Chelsea’s most comprehensive pre-season win so far, Traders have backed the forward heavily after a good performance.
Only time will tell to see if the young forward can do enough to lead the line for the Blues come the opening weekend of the Premier League.
Milinkovic-Savic (£1.64) once again linked to Manchester United
Continuously linked as a replacement for Paul Pogba, the future of the Serbian has been a popular theme amongst Traders this summer.
Should the Lazio midfielder make a move this summer, expect further interest from Traders.

A lot has gone array at Newcastle this summer, the departure of Rafa Benitez epitomising a feeling of gloom from supporters.
However, the record signing of Hoffenheim striker Joelinton has brought back some hope on Tyneside.
A marquee signing for the club, the talented Brazilian forward will be looking to make an instant impact ahead of what could be a tricky season ahead for Steve Bruce’s side.
