Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham fears he suffered a ‘serious’ thigh injury while playing for Bristol City at Leeds last night.
Abraham limped off in the first half of the 2-1 defeat at Elland Road and is going to have a scan on the problem within the next 48 hours.
The England Under-21 international has starred for the Championship club while on a season-long loan from Chelsea this term.
He has already scored 21 goals for Bristol City and is being monitored by Chelsea coach Antonio Conte in view of being part of the first team squad at Stamford Bridge next term.
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson is worried that the forward could now be facing a long spell on the sidelines.
Johnson said: “He has done something to his thigh although we don’t know to what extent yet.
“Tammy is gutted because he thinks it’s something serious. We hope that isn’t the case. We need to get it scanned over the next day or so to see how bad it is.
“He’s played a lot of games for a young kid, but you cannot leave him out when he is nigh-on the top scorer in the league.”
