Abraham must show he is an upgrade on Grabban as strikers go head-to-head

Tammy Abraham is Aston Villa’s main striker this season, just as Lewis Grabban was towards the end of the last campaign. Tonight, the two strikers go head-to-head as Aston Villa face Nottingham Forest.

Tammy Abraham is still finding his feet since his summer loan switch from Chelsea to Aston Villa.

But with each game he plays, the young striker looks more comfortable in claret and blue.

Tonight, he goes head-to-head with his Villa Park predecessor as Aston Villa welcome Nottingham Forest to the West Midlands.

Lewis Grabban was on loan at Aston Villa last season but is now returning to Villa Park as a Nottingham Forest player.

With both players in red hot form, this is Abraham’s chance to show Aston Villa fans that he is an upgrade on Grabban.

So far this season, Grabban is leading Abraham in the goal scoring charts.

The 30-year-old has 10 goals in 17 league matches, trumping Abraham’s tally of six goals in 12 games.


But with two goals in his last two games, Abraham is hitting form under new manager Dean Smith.

The 21-year-old will be determined to keep his goal scoring run going after netting in the Second City derby as well.

Over the course of the season, it could be a close-run contest between Grabban and Abraham in terms of goals.

But all eyes will be on the two centre-forwards in tonight’s encounter.

Have Aston Villa found themselves a better striker in Abraham? Only time will tell.
