LOAN WATCH: Chelsea striker Abraham stretchered off in Swansea loss

England international and Chelsea loanee, Tammy Abraham, is in doubt for this week's game against Bournemouth, after being stretched off on Saturday during Swansea's clash with Burnley.

The on-loan striker started complaining of back pain early in the second half but continued playing. Yet, Abraham's night did end early when, in the 80th minute, he attempted a shot from distance and ended up collapsing in agony.

Swansea Manager Paul Clement commented on the injury: “The physio's said his back went into spasm, but we will have to see if there's any injury there in the next day or so."

The loss of Abraham was not the only a disappointment for Swans' fans on Sunday as their side lost the game 2-0.
