Tammy Abraham’s long-time girlfriend, Leah Monroe, took to Instagram to blast Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel after he left out her man from the Blues squad for Saturday’s FA Cup final against Leicester City.
Tuchel had no place in his matchday squad for Abraham – despite him being Chelsea’s top scorer this season.
Timo Werner started in attack for Chelsea, with Olivier Giroud and record signing Kai Havertz both among the substitutes.
That left Abraham – in attendance at Wembley – to watch from the stands.
Reacting to the snub, she wrote in a now-deleted post: “How on earth do you make the decision to leave your top goalscorer out of the squad for a final!?!”
“The same person who even scored the goals to actually qualify for this competition? “It’s not making any sense to me whatsoever.”
She also added: “Not even the bench?! This has to be a joke.”
Chelsea went on to lose the final 1-0 courtesy of a Youri Tielemans volley from outside the box.
A number of Premier League clubs are keeping tabs on Abraham's situation including Aston Villa – where he previously enjoyed a fine loan spell – Wolves and West Ham.
David Moyes is understood to be a big fan of the Blues’ No.9, but believes the Hammers may struggle to meet any potential big-money fee – amid suggestions Chelsea would be looking for a figure in the region of £40million.
