Tammy Abraham’s form will surely seal January exit for Scott Hogan

Tammy Abraham has hit a rich vein of form. With Abraham flying, surely Scott Hogan is surplus to requirements at Aston Villa.

Tammy Abraham continued his fine form last night as he struck four goals in Aston Villa’s 5-5 draw with Nottingham Forest.

Abraham took his tally to 10 goals in 13 Championship matches since his summer loan move from Chelsea.

After scoring in the Second City derby last weekend, Abraham took that confidence into the midweek clash with Nottingham Forest at Villa Park.

And the Reds, who are usually so solid in defence under Aitor Karanka, could not handle the 21-year-old.

Aston Villa fans will be delighted to have Abraham as their main striker; he has the potential to fire them back to the Premier League.

 

But this is not good news for Scott Hogan, whose Aston Villa career is surely coming to an end.

The 26-year-old would have hoped for a reprieve when Steve Bruce was sacked and his former Brentford boss Dean Smith took over at Villa Park.

But it is going to be nearly impossible to replace in-form Abraham in the Aston Villa line-up.

And with Jonathan Kodjia also impressing and youngsters Keinan Davis and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy in and around the first-team when fit, Hogan seems surplus to requirements.

Abraham’s goal scoring exploits are ruining the Republic of Ireland international’s chances of salvaging his Aston Villa career.

For the sake of his own career, Hogan needs to leave in January.
