Tammy Abraham’s Girlfriend Slams Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel After FA Cup Final Snub

Tammy Abraham's partner, Leah Monroe, shared her anger that the Chelsea striker was left out of Thomas Tuchel's FA Cup final squad - before deleting her Instagram post.

Abraham has four goals in three FA Cup matches this season, but has been a less and less prominent player at the Blues since Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in late January.

The decision not to have a goalscorer like Abraham on the bench caused a reaction from fans, from pundits - and from the England's international's partner, who made her feelings clear on Instagram.

"How on earth do you make the decision to leave your top goal scorer out of the squad for a final?" posted Monroe on her IG stories, before later deleting the message.

"The same person who even scored the goals to actually qualify for this competition? It's not making any sense whatsoever."

She finished: "Not even the bench?! This has to be a joke."

Abraham's partner shared her message before Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Leicester in the FA Cup final and there might be some Blues fans also asking why Abraham wasn't even worth a place among the substitutes.

The 23-year-old scored the only goal of the game when Chelsea beat Barnsley in the fifth round in February. He is also still the club's joint top scorer this season - on 12 in all compettions, the same number as Timo Werner - despite his lack of first-team action of late.

Instead, Tuchel went for Werner up front with Olivier Giroud among the substitutes as a centre-forward option.

There are reports that Abraham is likely to leave Chelsea this summer as he is clearly not part of Tuchel's plans.

And at least one person close to Abraham clearly believes Tuchel made a big mistake with his squad selection on Saturday.
