Ex-Everton Star Rates 21-Year-Olds: Chelsea's Abraham Not In The Same League As Rashford
Former Everton defender Joseph Yobo has insisted that Chelsea's Tammy Abraham is not in the same league as Manchester United young star Marcus Rashford.

The two 21-year-olds featured from the off as Chelsea suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, with the England striker netting a brace for the hosts.

With Chelsea slapped with a two-window transfer ban by FIFA, they didn't have the chance to sign new players in the summer and Abraham was drafted into the first team fold for the first time in four seasons.

Comparing the two players, SuperSport pundit Yobo stated : ''Abraham is relatively new. Talk about a Rashford, he's an experienced player, he has been around for two seasons and he has done relatively well for Manchester United.

''He has played in the big games. Most times when Lukaku was found wanting last season, Rashford stepped up.

''So he is a big game player, he is more experienced than Tammy Abraham. With the athleticism and how quick he is, he is a threat to any defender.''

In 112 outings in the Premier League, Rashford has found the net on 29 occasions, while Abraham has netted 5 goals in 34 appearances.
