Chelsea right now are in need of a hero, and Swansea captain Leon Britton believes Chelsea have a hero in youngster Tammy Abraham who is currently on loan with Swansea.

Abraham scored a brace in Swansea’s 2-0 win against Huddersfield which allowed the Swans to move up the table after falling into the relegation zone and Britton believes the 20-year-old could make a big impact at Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t see why Tammy can’t make it there, when he goes back to Chelsea,” said Britton.

“The top teams always create a lot of chances and Tammy is a very good finisher. If you give him those chances, he will score the goals.

“He has come here to prove to Chelsea that he can do it in the Premier League with a team who are not at the standard of Chelsea.

“If he does that, I don’t see any reason why he can’t go back to Chelsea, break through and have a long career there.

“He reminds me of someone I played with years ago at West Ham, Jermaine Defoe, in terms of the hunger to score goals.

“Sometimes players don’t want to do that, they will look to pass the ball.

“But he just wants to get on the end of everything. He is very single-minded.

“Jermain has scored 160-odd goals in the Premier League and Tammy can go on and have a great career in the Premier League.

“Hopefully, for him, he will continue to do it here and then go back to Chelsea and score many goals there.”
