Swansea striker Tammy Abraham could be fit for Bournemouth clash

Striker Tammy Abraham could be in the selection frame for Swansea's Premier League appointment with Bournemouth on Saturday.

Abraham, who is on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Chelsea, was carried off during the closing stages of last Saturday's 2-0 Premier League defeat against Burnley.

And although he missed training on Tuesday, Swans boss Paul Clement is upbeat about his prospects of being fit to face Bournemouth in four days' time.

"Tammy didn't train today, but we are expecting him to rejoin training this week," Clement told Swansea's official website.

"His back went into spasm at Burnley, but I don't think there is an injury there.

"He is a bit stiff at the moment, but we think he will be okay for Bournemouth."

Abraham, 20, made his England debut against Germany earlier this month, and has been a star performer amid a difficult season so far for Swansea.

He is the club's leading scorer this term, having netted five times, while he has also started all but one of the club's 12 league games.
