Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has hailed on-loan star Tammy Abraham as good enough to get in the Chelsea team now.
The 18-year-old forward, who is on loan from the Stamford Bridge club, has started the season in phenomenal form and will be the dangerman ahead of his club’s trip to Leeds on Tuesday night.
Abraham has scored 10 goals in just 12 appearances this campaign, with the youngster scoring seven in the Championship and in all three of City’s EFL Cup rounds.
The England youth international, who already stands at an imposing 6ft 3ins, has been a key figure in City’s climb to 10th in the league, where they sit two places above their Tuesday night opponents.
“The world is his oyster,” manager Johnson said, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post. “He can do anything he wants. He could go into Chelsea’s team now, no doubt about that. “The test will be, does he keep his feet on the ground?”
Abraham will be available to play against Leeds on Tuesday after recovering from a dead leg suffered in the 4-0 win against Fulham on Saturday and will be firmly on the radar of Pontus Jansson and Kyle Bartley this evening.
City’s assistant manager John Pemberton has confirmed that Abraham will be fit to play Leeds.
“Tammy is alright,” he said, as quoted by the Bristol Post. “He had a slight dead leg but he’ll be okay.”
Leeds have won four consecutive matches in all competitions and victory on Tuesday will lift them into the top half of the Championship table.
