Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham equalled a feat only previously achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli after his hat-trick in the 5-2 victory over Wolves on Saturday.

His hat-trick against Wolves means Abraham is only the third player in Premier League history to score at least two goals in three consecutive Premier League games emulating Ronaldo in December 2006 and Alli in January 2017.

The 21 year old striker also set a new Chelsea record after his hat-trick against Wolves as he became the youngest Chelsea player to score a Premier League hat-trick.

If Abraham continues his scoring streak, he could be set for another record as he’d match a record set by former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

In 2013, Suarez scored 2 or more goals in 4 games in a row. Tammy can be the first player to repeat the achievement if he at least scores a brace on Sunday.

Suarez started the run in December 2013 by scoring four goals against Norwich which he followed up by two strikes each against West Ham, Tottenham and Cardiff. Suarez became the first Premier League player to score two or more goals in four consecutive games.

Tammy Abraham will be up against Virgil van Dijk on Sunday, and Blues boss Frank Lampard has revealed that it’ll be Abraham’s biggest test to date.

Lampard insists it’ll be a huge test for the 21-year-old especially when he faces Van Dijk who’s hailed as the best centre-back in the Premier League.

“Van Dijk clearly with the performance he has put in this year has thrown him up into the reckoning for the individual awards,” he said.

“Quite rightly. He is an incredible player. Seemingly, he has every attribute needed to be a defender and more.

“It is a test for our centre forward.”
