Share this story

The English striker scored three superb goals to help Frank Lampard’s side defeat wolves at Molineux stadium.

Tammy Abraham continued his fine form for the blues after scoring three to help the Blues beat Wolverhampton Wanderers. Defender Fikayo Tomori opened the scoring for the Blues in the 31st minute with a stunning 25-yard finish.

Abraham doubled Chelsea lead in the 34th minute with a shot on the turn before scoring the third for his side in the 41st minute after collecting a pass from midfielder Jorginho. The striker completed his hat-trick feat with a headed goal from Marcos Alonso’s cross in the 55th minute. The striker, however, was unfortunate to score an own goal in the 69th minute when Romain Saiss’ header struck his right hand before crossing the line. Patrick Crutone reduced the deficit for wolves after scoring his side second goal of the evening. Mason Mount scored with the last kick of the game to seal the victory for the blues.

The striker has now scored seven in his last five premier leagues and is now the top scorer. Abraham joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli in becoming only the third Premier League player aged 21 or younger to score two or more goals in three consecutive appearances.

Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard was delighted with the striker performance and was quick to point out the striker’s enthusiasm to succeed as well as his ability to score more goals. Chelsea has 11 Premier League goals this season, and Abraham has scored seven of them during an excellent start to the campaign.

The blues are now placed sixth in the league table with this win. The win would surely serve as a morale booster for Frank Lampard lads as they get set to face Spanish side, Valencia in the UEFA Champions League group stage on Tuesday before welcoming league leaders, Liverpool in matchday six of the English Premier League.

Chelsea will come up against League favourites, Liverpool in their next fixture. The Blues are available at 3.67 to win, while The Reds are backed at 1.99. A likely draw is fancied at 3.91.
