​Neville blames Chelsea striker for injuring himself

Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville, has criticised Tammy Abraham for attempting to win a penalty.

Abraham was involved from the start against Newcastle United, but came off with an injury in the first half.

The 23-year-old almost won a penalty after a tangle with Jamaal Lascelles.

However, Neville felt Abraham tried to engineer the contact, which eventually led to his injury and substitution.

“We have seen this time and time again where players do not play the ball, they try and encourage the penalty and want the foul,” the former England defender told Sky Sports.

“Watch Tammy Abraham’s right foot… he steps right into and unnatural position because he wants Lascelles to come through the back of him.

“Rather than play the ball where he could have got a penalty anyway, or might have scored a goal, he ends up getting himself hurt.”
