Tammy only has eyes for the Swans

Tammy Abraham insists he is not thinking about the future as he focuses on firing Swansea City up the Premier League table.

Abraham will be due to return to parent-club Chelsea when his season-long loan stint with the Swans concludes in May.

But the 20-year-old frontman’s only thoughts right now are on helping his loan club pull clear of relegation danger.

“I have to show everyone that my mind is here at Swansea,” Abraham said.

“My job is to help the team as much as possible and at the moment. I am a Swansea player and this is not about me standing by the door waiting to go back to Chelsea.

“I’m 100 per cent focused on Swansea and on trying to get us out of the mess we are in at the moment.

“We are trying to put things right and we have to stay focused and positive.”

Abraham scored five goals in his first two months as a Swan after arriving on loan in the summer.

That form saw him capped at senior level by England for the first time, but he is without a goal since mid-October.

Abraham also experienced a dry spell while on loan in the Championship with Bristol City last term, and he is determined to come through the current barren spell.

“Last season the goals dried up and I needed to learn from that,” he added.

“You do different things to help the team and then hopefully the goals will start coming.

“It’s frustrating as a striker when you are not scoring goals, but I just have to focus on changing that.”

Abraham’s first Swans goal came at Crystal Palace back in August.

The Swans face the Eagles once more tomorrow and are desperate for points after a run of one win in 10 games which cost Paul Clement his job this week.

“Saturday is massive for us, a must-win, and we have to go out with all guns blazing,” Abraham said.

“We have to keep fighting. We have to give everyone a performance – we owe everyone a good performance.

“Palace is like a cup final for us and we have to perform.”
