ABRAHIMOVIC Chelsea star Tammy Abraham matches the historic record set by Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli with a hat-trick against Wolves
It seems that the days of sending an army of starlets out on loan are no longer in Stamford Bridge, and Tammy Abraham is the one who profiting most.
Young Chelsea star has sensationally matched a record set by Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli this weekend, after scoring a hat-trick against Wolves for his SEVENTH Premier League goal in just five games.
A double on Carrow Road against Norwich City was instantly followed by another on the Bridge against Sheffield United.
And now Abraham has replicated the feat once more and has put his name among the esteemed company.
The forward has become the third player of 21 years or less to score at least two goals in three consecutive Premier League games, after Ronaldo, in December 2006, and Alli in January 2017.
His treble came after another academy, Fikayo Tomori, opened the scoring with an absolute screamer.
In his second appearance for Chelsea, the defender produced a moment of magic to give his team the advantage.
After Willian played a small corner kick with Mason Mount, the game creator fought for possession before the ball fell on Tomori, which was miles away.
But he took everyone by surprise after lining him with such a deviation that he left Rui Patricio with no chance
And his lightning even made Gary Lineker speak on social media.
The presenter of the game of the day tweeted:“Absolutely superb goal from Tomori for @ChelseaFC, another of Frank’s young stars.”

Surprisingly, Abraham also scored a fourth in the game, but on the wrong side.
He included the ‘Roman Saiss’ header on his own network to become the first player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick and a goal in the same game.

Tomori, who was borrowed in Derby last season and won his Player of the Year award, was deployed on the right side of the last five when Frank Lampard changed his tactics for the Midlands clash.
