Tammy Abraham: I want to score 30 goals this season

Bristol City striker Tammy Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, has revealed that he has set a target of 30 goals this season.

Following the arrival of Michy Batshuayi in the summer, the teenager departed Stamford Bridge in the search of regular first team football and has been one of the standout players in the Championship at this early stage of the campaign since joining The Robins.

He scored eight goals in his first 11 appearances for City, netted a brace on his full debut for the England u21 side against Bosnia earlier in the month and spoke of his targets for the season in an interview with Sky Sports.

“The way I’m going I’ve set myself a target of 30 plus goals this season.

“We know in the Championship any team can beat any team but all the players I’m playing with are fantastic and we’re aiming for the play-offs.

“[The Championship] is a different challenge, I knew what to expect coming across players older than me and stronger than me.

“You have to adapt the way you play and adapt your game [from youth football].”

Abraham is one of many highly-rated youngsters currently on the books at Chelsea but also dotted around Europe on loan as there seems to be a reluctance to show faith in those from the academy.

The striker made two cameo appearances off the bench in the Blues’ final games of last season and has already acknowledged that it will be tough to break into the team upon his return, although scoring goals for Bristol City should do his chances no harm.
