Tammy Abraham has become the youngest Chelsea player to score a Premier League hat-trick after his goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Anglo-Nigerian continues to add to his growing reputation despite a sluggish start at his boyhood club, and on Saturday, he etched his name in the Blues' history books in his side's 5-2 triumph.

He got his first of the evening after 34 minutes and his second right before half-time before completing his treble in the 55th minute.
Also, the Chelsea graduate becomes the youngest Englishman to achieve that feat in the competition since Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling against Bournemouth in 2015.
In the seven-goal thriller, he also made an unwanted record for himself when he turned the ball into his net to hand Wolves the first of their two goals.

Following Frank Lampard’s arrival in the off-season, Abraham was handed the No. 9 shirt and has proved to be the man for the job with seven goals in his last three outings.
After turning in an awe-inspiring shift at the Molineux Stadium, he was replaced in the 77th minute by Michy Batshuayi.
Abraham is expected to lead the Blues’ attack when they host Valencia in Tuesday’s Champions League opener at Stamford Bridge before their blockbuster English top-flight showdown with Liverpool next weekend.
