Roma striker Tammy Abraham insists Chelsea’s No9 shirt isn’t “cursed”.
Abraham says being a striker for Chelsea can be tough given the way they traditionally play.
He told the Daily Mail: “I remember Lukaku saying at Inter Milan he is facing the goal more compared to Chelsea, when it is more back to the goal and linking up. It made me think back and compare it to my style of play now.
“The midfield and defenders are so vital for Chelsea, it is a lonely job up front and can be difficult.
“But I don’t think it’s true to say there is a curse of No9s, there will be different reasons for each striker, and it’s an honour to play for that club.”
