Tammy Abraham scored his first senior goal for the Blues as Chelsea beat Barcelona 2-1 on Tuesday.

Abraham has revealed he has set himself a target of 26 goals for Chelsea this season.

The 21 year old striker scored 26 goals on loan for Aston Villa last season as he helped lead them back into the Premier League.

“I do set targets. If I can get near what I scored last season for Aston Villa I will be more than happy,” Abraham said.

“But it’s more about the team. Score goals, help the team and I’ll be happy.”

Abraham added: “The Championship is different to the Premier League, but it toughens you up and makes you more of a man quicker.

“It was about learning that side of the game for me. Coming from the Chelsea academy we always dominated with the ball.

“Going to play for teams where you don’t have the ball so much it’s about learning the other side of the game. And scoring goals has brought me a lot of confidence.

“Things are looking positive. I’m sure a lot of the young lads know this is our opportunity to impress and try to work hard.

“I’ve grown up with most of them. We’ve got some fantastic footballers here. But it’s about learning the other side. The manager is bringing in how we want to defend and it’s about learning that aspect as well.

“I’ve played with Mason Mount a lot and in training we’ve been connecting as well. We played together at Under-18s and Under-21s, so we know what each other are about.

“It is about getting regular football. The rhythm of games does help you. The more games you play the more experiences you get.

“Obviously it doesn’t come easy at Chelsea, but I’ve got a manager who believes in the young lads and believes in opportunities for young players. It’s about doing my best and hopefully I’ll be knocking on the door.”
