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.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori gave Chelsea against Wolves the lead with a 35-yard strike before Abraham doubled Chelsea’s advantage two minutes later.

Abraham scored his second goal of the game and Chelsea’s third, before half-time when he connected with a Marcos Alonso cross, to give Chelsea a commanding 3-0 lead at halftime.

He then completed his hat-trick just before the hour mark after receiving a pass from Jorginho, showing good pace and strength to see off Conor Coady, before clinically slotting the ball past Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

Abraham has adapted quickly to the Premier League since returning from his loan spell at Aston Villa.

His last spell in the Premier League was on loan at Swansea City, in which he managed just five goals in 31 appearances.

Abraham admitted earlier this week that his loan spell at Swansea City thought him a lot about making the most of his chances.

“It was a good learning curve going to a team like Swansea,” Abraham said.

“We didn’t create a lot of chances and we weren’t on the ball as much.

“With Chelsea growing up in the academy I was used to winning things, scoring a load of goals, but at Swansea I learned the other side to football in the Premier League. It made me into a man even quicker.

“At Chelsea if we are not on the ball for the majority of the game then we can count it as a disappointment. I’m playing with so many quality players here, some of the best players in the world.

“I get to learn off them and train with them every day, so it’s nice to be in this environment.”
