Tammy Abraham has been a revelation for Bristol City on loan in the Championship. The 19-year-old had a successful loan spell, scoring 23 league goals for a Championship side that spent most of their season fighting relegation.

Ray Wilkins is disappointed that the 19-year-old is out on loan and believes he should rather be in the Chelsea squad.

The former Chelsea assistant manager told Sky Sports: “If you look through the strikers they have, they’ve got Tammy out on loan at Bristol City.

“That young man has scored 23 goals and he’s had a remarkable season.

“I wish he hadn’t gone there. I wish he’d been on the bench for Chelsea.”

I disagree with Wilkins here, Abraham’s loan spell has given him the recognition he deserves and has boosted his confidence as well; he’d probably have wasted on the Chelsea bench.
