Tammy Abraham has struggled to hold down a place in the Chelsea team under Thomas Tuchel (Picture: Getty Images)Aston Villa and West Ham are considering a summer move for Chelsea and England striker Tammy Abraham as he struggles to hold down a place in the first team under Thoams Tuchel.

Nathan MacKinnon suffers injury late in Avalanche’s 4-0 victory at San Jose

In response to its second four-goal loss within a week late Wednesday, the Avalanche used a near-flawless effort to defeat the San Jose Sharks 4-0 at SAP Arena and finish 3-1 on its four-game road trip. Top-line wingers Mikko Rantanen (two goals, two assists) and Gabe Landeskog (goal, two assists) led the way offensively, and goalie Philipp Grubauer (26 saves) was excellent with his third shutout of the season after allowing five goals in Monday’s 6-2 loss to the Sharks. Star center Nathan MacKinnon, however, left the game with an apparent head injury after absorbing a check-to-the-head from Sharks fourth-line winger Joachim Blichfeld at 8:08 of the final frame. MacKinnon, who assisted on Rantanen’s goal, did not return. Landeskog scored a power-play goal during Blichfeld’s five-minute ma...
