Two Chelsea players – Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham have been named in BBC’s Team of the Week for the role they played as Chelsea defeated Wolves 5-2 in the Premier League fixture on Saturday.

BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks was impressed with the performance of Tomori and Abraham over the weekend and put the duo in his first eleven.

Tomori scored a spectacular long-range strike to open the scoring at Molineux, and Crooks wasn’t only impressed with his goal but his performance as well.

“What a goal. What’s more he meant it. This performance by this youngster was outstanding and his goal only tells half the story,” said Crooks of the 21-year-old.

“Playing in a back three, he was amazing. Tomori’s confidence to take the ball into the danger area and provide the assist for Tammy Abraham suggest this lad is no ordinary defender. This is someone I intend keeping my eye on.”

Abraham became the youngest Chelsea player to score a hat-trick and made Crooks team for the second time.

“His first goal against Wolves was alright, his second better and his third outstanding,” Crooks said of the young Chelsea forward.

“I said recently said that Frank Lampard had seen something in this kid and we are clearly starting to see the same thing.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen an English centre forward of Abraham’s size and stature move around the pitch so comfortably and be so competent on the ball.”
