Tammy Abraham Matches Cristiano Ronaldo And Dele Alli’s Premier League Record

The Blues’ youngster becomes the third player under the age of 21 to score at least two goals in three successive in English top-flight matches

Tammy Abraham has joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli in the Premier League’s revered ranks thanks to his first-half brace against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After Fikayo Tomori’s opener, Abraham found the net twice to give Chelsea a comfortable 3-0 lead at half-time in West Midlands, England.

Following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in their last clash prior to the international break, Frank Lampard’s men were hoping to bounce back against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

The 21-year-year was the man for the job as he continued his fine scoring run in front of goal for the Stamford Bridge giants.

In the process, the Anglo-Nigerian, who has now scored six goals in his last three appearances, now takes his place in the Premier League history books alongside club legend Ronaldo and Tottenham Hotspur’s Alli.

Abraham joined Chelsea as a youngster in 2004 but has had to wait to make his impact under manager Lampard. He had spent time on loan at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa.
