Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scored his first ever Premier League hat-trick earlier this season, in a 5-2 win against Wolves that also saw a spectacular strike from Fikayo Tomori.
Abraham has now revealed how he was able to achieve that feat, and the role that Fikayo Tomori played.
“It was one of those feelings where you score in two consecutive games so you’re not under pressure to score,” said Tammy in an interview with Chelsea’s official app, The 5th Stand app.
“In my head I felt there was no pressure.
“Fikayo had already scored a banger, then my first chance came and I took it. Then there was another one and I scored again, so we were in a great position at half-time.
“I said to Fikayo, ‘I’m tired, man, I might just tell the manager to replace me’, Fik was like: ‘Stay on the pitch, try and get your hat-trick’ because it was the second game in a row I’d scored two goals.
“I came out for the second half and then I just remember I was one-on-one with Conor Coady and the confidence that I had inside me took the tiredness away, I did that skill to get away from him and scored and then after the game me, Mason and Fikayo were all talking and realising that we’d all just scored for Chelsea in the Premier League, so it was crazy and amazing feelings that day.”
