LOAN WATCH: Chelsea youngster Abraham scores debut Premier League goal for Swansea

19-year-old Tammy Abraham became the second youngest player in Swansea history to score a Premier League goal, after striking home in the 44th minute, in Swansea City's 2-0 defeat of Crystal Palace.

Abraham who is on loan from Chelsea this season, managed to connect with Leroy Fer's cross and side-foot the ball into the goal at close range.

Abraham's goal was Swansea's first shot on target in 223 minutes, and helped lead Swansea to their first win of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

Swansea boss Paul Clement said after the match, “Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew took their goals well, they both scored midweek, it's what you want from the strikers."

Abraham was awarded man of the match for his performance. He took to twitter to express his delight: “BIG BIG WIN!! Nice to take 3 points back and over the moon with my first Premier league goal.. time for the international break. #jackarmy

Abraham was also named in Garth Crooks' team of the week:

Swansea plays Newcastle in their next game on September 10th at 4pm.
