Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham equalled a feat only previously achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli when he headed home against Wolves at Molineux.

After a cagey opening half hour, Fikayo Tomori had given Chelsea the lead with a 35-yard strike that Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio will feel he should have saved.

Tomori was involved again just two minutes later when he roved forward from centre-half and found Mason Mount bursting into the box. The midfielder was tackled but the ball broke kindly to Abraham who stroked the ball home to double Chelsea’s advantage, his fifth goal of the season.

He made it six before half-time when he connected with a Marcos Alonso cross and, as well as giving Frank Lampard and co a commanding lead in the game, he wrote himself into the history books.

His brace, a third in as many games, made him only the third player aged 21 or under to score twice in three consecutive Premier League appearances, emulating Ronaldo in December 2006 and Alli in January 2017 – before going on to complete hat-trick in under an hour.

The match ended 5-2 in favour of Chelsea, with Abraham grabbing the headline.

Tammy is now the highest goal scorer in the Premier league with seven goals.
