England-born Nigerian striker, Tammy Abraham scored twice as Swansea registered their first three points at home this season, in a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in the English Premier league on Saturday.

The striker whose international career continues to hang in the balance, scored the first goal when he slotted in a Tom Carroll’s cut-back after Jonas Lossl’s poor clearance in the 42nd minute of the match.

Australia international, Aaron Mooy was introduced in the second half, but he inadvertently setup Swansea’s second when he dispossessed Luciano Narsingh and the ball fell to Jordan Ayew, with Abraham ensuring the Ghanaian’s dink crossed the line 3 minutes into the second half to give the team from South Wales all three points.

The result means Swansea now sit 13th in the Premier League standings, just a point behind the Terriers, who continued their slide down the table.

Abraham has now scored 4 of Swansea 5 Premier League goals this season and might even be in for a recall by parent club, Chelsea if Mitchy Batshuayi continues to struggle in deputising Alvaro Morata.

After the game, Swansea City boss, Paul Clement had words of praise and encouragement for the young striker saying he was particularly impressed with his defensive ability.

“That was the best game Tammy has played, I was pleased with his overall performance.

“He was threatening the defence with his runs, his play with his back to goal was better and he put in a good shift defensively,” Clement said.
