Chelsea striker Tammy Ibrahim equalled an effort only antecedently achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli once he headed home against Wolves at Molineux.
After a cagey opening half-hour, Fikayo Tomori had given Chelsea the lead with a 35-yard strike that Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio can feel he should have saved.
Tomori was involved again just two minutes later when he roved forward from centre-half and found Mason Mount bursting into the box.
The midfielder was tackled but the ball broke kindly to Ibrahim who stroked the ball home to double Chelsea’s advantage, his fifth goal of the season.
He made it six before half-time once he connected with a Marcos Alonso cross and, as well as giving Frank Lampard and co a commanding lead in the game, he wrote himself into the history books.
Chelsea Ran out 5-2 Winners and Ball Broke Kindly to Ibrahim
His brace, a third in as many games, made him only the third player aged 21 or under to score twice in three consecutive Premier League appearances, emulating Ronaldo in December 2006 and Alli in January 2017 – before going on to complete the hat-trick in under an hour.
The England international also added an unfortunate own goal and ended up being subbed off with cramp – but Chelsea ran out 5-2 winners as Matt Doherty grabbed another for the home side and Mason Mount finished the game for the Blues late in stoppage time.
Abraham had never scored in the Premier League for Chelsea before this season, although he had opened his account in the top-flight while on loan at Swansea.
However, his spell in south Wales was hardly a prolific one – he only managed 5 in 31 appearances – and he admitted earlier on that it taught him a lot about making the most of his chances.
‘It was a decent learning curve going to a team like Swansea,’ Abraham said. ‘We didn’t create a lot of possibilities and we weren’t on the ball as much.
‘With Chelsea growing up in the academy I was be} be} used to winning things, scoring a load of goals, but at Swansea, I learned the other side to football in the Premier League.
It made me into a man even faster ‘At Chelsea if we are not on the ball for the majority of the game then we can count it as a disappointment.
I’m playing with such a lot of quality players here, some of the best players in the world. ‘I get to be told of them and train with them every day, so it’s nice to be in this environment.’
