Former Chelsea player Tammy Abraham is having the best form of his life as he recorded his 17th Serie A goal of the season but Roma was held at 10-man Sassuolo and lost further ground in the race for European qualification. The England international Abraham scored the opener from the penalty spot but Chris Smalling’s own goal and Hamed Traore’s strike put the hosts in front.
Tammy Abraham Doing well at Roma
Sassuolo defender Gian Marco Ferrari was dismissed and Bryan Cristante headed in the equaliser in injury time. Jose Mourinho’s side stays in seventh, two points behind local rivals, Lazio. Speaking on the success of Tammy Abraham, AS Roma head coach Jose Mourinho said: “It isn’t the result we wanted, but if nothing else we haven’t lost in the last four in Serie A. We have got eight points.” The former Chelsea and Manchester United player praised the Englishman for his good play so far in the league.
He also said: “If you had asked me at the start, I would not have wanted a draw, but in the 90th minute.” Elsewhere in Serie A, Danilo scored an added-time equaliser to rescue a 1-1 draw for Juventus at Atalanta and earn a point that could prove crucial to their top-four hopes.”
