Swansea manager Paul Clement has backed Chelsea loanee, Tammy Abraham, to deliver in the English Premier League.

The Anglo-Nigerian who spent last season on loan at Bristol City in the Championship scoring 26 times has yet to register a shot on target in two games played so far.

But the Liberty Stadium outfit boss believes the 19-year-old forward will rediscover his goal-scoring form soon as he continues to get used to the rigors of the English Premiership.

“I think both Tammy and Jordan (Ayew) needed to do better when the ball was played forward to them (against United),” Clement told the Dailymail.

“This was Tammy's second game at this level, aside from two substitute appearances at Chelsea. He is now starting Premier League games.

“It is going to be a brilliant learning experience for him, but at the same time he is not here on work experience.

“He is here to deliver. He knows that and I am sure it is a matter of time before he is scoring goals.”
