Chelsea are currently off on their holidays, enjoying a week away on the newly introduced winter break in the Premier League.
Whilst many of them will be off sunning themselves in warmer climates, the fans at home are left to debate and discuss the season so far, and look forward to the second half and the clubs top four challenge.
The team will be back training again next week getting ready to face Manchester United on February the 17th.
So there will be a lot more time for debates on Twitter yet. One caught my eye from yesterday, and that is off the back of a statistics chart putting Tammy Abraham top for ‘big chances missed.’
Now, as you will see from the comments, there are two ways of looking at this despite it appearing a negative.
As some Blues fans point out, it is good that he’s been getting into the right positions. But as Frank Lampard has highlighted this season, a big problem is Chelsea not finishing chances, so here lies the negative.
Chelsea fans had their say…
A lot of top players are up there with him, so I wouldn’t be too bothered by it.

Shows that he's in the right areas. Finishing needs to improve but he will know that. Plenty of time for him to get better.

Imagine Tammy in 3/4 years in his prime, he’ll get there, I have faith in him.

it’s natural, id even say that’s a good sign…

Good sign, shows you're creating chances

He’s in good company and he’s getting in the right positions. It’s encouraging

At least he’s getting in the correct positions mate, Morata/Higuain would’ve gone down with 6 injuries by now trying to run

That was the positives, now for the negatives….
No suprise that's why we needed a clinical striker this window and we need one in the summer

Keep giving yourself false hope mbappe wasn't even up to his age when he was scoring goals for fun. Aaland is a young adult look at him converting even the tiniest of chances. But go on

Tbf I don’t really rate Abraham, I feel like he loses the ball way too much when he has it and misses quite a lot of chances. Would love to hear opinions on this

At least 8 is from Reece James crosses he can’t say the service isn’t there

Who else isn't surprised?? Tammy can miss like 4 big chances in a Game

We all know Tammy is a average striker. We needed somoeone to get a few goals and be an energetic presence upfront , and Tammy has done that well. But now we need many goals , Tammy is not the guy

I think we need Werner
