He's dominated youth football from the age of 16, and now Tammy Abraham is transferring that form into the competitive ranks.

The Chelsea youngster scored a remarkable 72 goals in 101 games for their various youth sides, and the 18 year-old is now scoring in the Championship with Lee Johnson's Bristol City.

A brace in City's 2-1 win over Burton Albion at the weekend added to his tall of two in two, after goals against Wigan Athletic and Wycombe Wanderers. His early season form has really announced the forward as a player to potentially have major success this term.

With his tall frame, all four of Abraham's goals in a Bristol City shirt have shown he has the ability to score in different situations.

Both finishes at the Pirelli Stadium this weekend were poacher's finishes, as well as a brave header on his debut and a goal from the edge of the box in the EFL Cup. 

Given his goal rate at Chelsea, he certainly has a knack of being in the right place at the right time which is a sign of a natural finisher and his goals at the weekend proved that.

His physical presence will allow Lee Johnson to be flexible in his approach. At Chelsea he showed intelligence when in possession, when to 'set and go' and look to be on the end of the final pass but also when is the right time to be selfish in the final third, which all successful strikers have to be.

The England Under 19 international's explosive pace means he can stretch games and create space for midfielders also.

Abraham featured for Chelsea's first team in the clubs final two games of the season against Liverpool and Leicester City where he impressed during his cameo, the club will no doubt be watching his progress intensively given his blistering start at Bristol City.

It's a mighty impressive start to his senior career, four goals in three games was unexpected, but it's only the beginning of what Bristol City hope will be a very happy loan spell for the Chelsea man.
