Ian Wright has revealed that he would prefer Tammy Abraham at Chelsea’s over Michy Batshuayi.

Abraham scored twice to lead Swansea to a 2-0 win over Huddersfield at the Liberty Stadium while Chelsea lost 2-1 to bottom-of-the-league Crystal Palace.

Wright highlighted Batshuayi’s poor performance, insisting he would have given Abraham a chance over sticking with the Beglian.

“I said a couple of weeks ago that Batshuayi should be very disappointed that he [Conte] would rather put Hazard up there,” Wright told BBC.

“The problem I have got with him is he is not working defenders hard enough to get some space to get a chance in the box, that’s what he needs. He needs to make movements to get this space.

“When you watch him he doesn’t move. His movement just doesn’t have enough intensity about it, there’s nothing in it. There were some fantastic balls [against Crystal Palace] but he was too late for many of them.

“Tammy set the tone straight away,” he continued.

“What I really like about him is that he hits the target. I was hoping he would get some goals today to give him confidence.

“He worked hard and showed composure for his first goal and his movement today was superb.

”With that movement, I’m taking Tammy all day long,” he concluded.
