Will Tammy Abraham be able to hit the pitch on Saturday, as Chelsea takes on Leicester City in a monstrous English Premier League clash? That's the $1 million question Blues fans have right now.
Abraham, one of the top scorers in the league thus far this season, suffered an ankle injury in his side's 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Jan. 22. Now, a little over a week later, the 22-year-old could reportedly be asked to fight through the pain to take the field.

Abraham's injury isn't a serious one, which is why manager Frank Lampard could indeed ask for him to battle through his knock to be able to suit up. It goes without saying, but the meeting between Chelsea and LC is a big one.
Leicester City stands in third place of the league table with 48 points, while Chelsea remains in fourth with 40. However, Manchester United is only six points behind in fifth with 34 points. Chelsea must continue to keep them at bay.
Things could change for Lampard if the Blues are able to sign a goal-scorer ahead of the January transfer deadline. They've been consistently looking for options to help out at Stamford Bridge.
Abraham is no question the team's best scoring threat. On the year, he's got 13 goals in 23 league matches. Will he be able to find the net for the 14th time come this weekend? We're about to find out.
