In what was arguably the biggest game of his career to date, Tammy Abraham stood tall and produced a magnificent display.
Aston Villa hosted Birmingham City in the highly-anticipated Second City derby.
Abraham would not have much experience of crunch rival games like that, especially in front of a packed house at Villa Park.
But rather than let the atmosphere intimidate him, Abraham rose to the occasion and further underlined his talent.
The 21-year-old is regarded as one of the best young talents in England and he scored his sixth goal of the season in this game.
Abraham won a penalty when he got the better of Michael Morrison and was pulled to the ground.
The England under-21 international, on loan from Chelsea, picked himself up and showed nerves of steel to score his penalty off the inside of the post.
Abraham was a handful for the Birmingham defenders all afternoon, providing a presence up front for the Villans to work with.
He is growing into his role as Aston Villa’s target man and alongside the likes of Jack Grealish, Albert Adomah and Jonathan Kodjia, the goals will start flowing.
Abraham will be high on confidence after his Second City derby performance as he aims to impress for Aston Villa this season and earn his place in Chelsea’s team next year.
