3:00pm Saturday 14th September
Tammy Abraham scored a together with Fikayo Tomori also netting his first senior goal since Chelsea beat Wolves 5-2 on Saturday.
It was defender Tomori (31) who got the scoring under way with a breathtaking long-range curler until Abraham (34, 41) included two more in the first half.
The 21-year-old scored another two too, finishing his hat-trick at the 54th minute prior to committing Wolves a lifeline having an unfortunate own-goal (69). Patrick Cutrone added the following to the hosts with five minutes to perform, however Mason Mount (90+6) had the final word as he slotted home with the final kick of the match.
This was the Premier League win of the season for Frank Lampard – sending Chelsea – while Wolves remain winless in the league ahead of the Europa League group stage opener on Thursday.
The launch half an hour was a muted affair, and there was not a shot until the magnificent opener at the 31st minute of Tomori.
After a bad corner regular from Chelsea, the attempted clearance of Jonny discovered that the defender near the peak of the region, and he pinged a curling effort into the far corner.
Three minutes after, also Abraham doubled the lead. Tomori was included as he’d fed Mount within the region, together with the latter going down from Conor Coady following contact. The loose ball dropped to Abraham that took a touch before hitting house while players and the audience called for a punishment.
The 21-year-old then nabbed another double – his third in games – at the 41st minute as he continues to unwind at the Premier League.
Before visiting Abraham at the middle a Jesus Vallejo clearance collected at the top right corner. Since the ball has been sent, the striker nipped to go the third of Chelsea .
It took nine minutes of the half for Abraham to complete his hat-trick. He gathered a beautiful move that was floated under stress from Coady, before tricking his way and racing on the ball. Following that, it turned into a finish into the far corner because Chelsea made it four.
Abraham was included all over the pitch and accidentally handed Wolves a way back into the match with a minute own-goal. Romain Saiss headed a Joao Moutinho corner to the net, which divides the arm of Abraham . As Chelsea’s chance of a clean sheet this year came to a conclusion the ball then slipped through the hands of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
It was a grandstand finish when Wolves inserted another in the 85th minute. It was a deserved target after coming on in half-time for Cutrone, that excelled, after the shot of Matt Doherty had been rescued by Arrizabalaga as he fired a house.
Nevertheless, it wasn’t enough to propel a comeback as the victory was sealed by Chelsea with the last kick of the match. It was a no-look pass from Michy Batshuyai that chose Mount out down the leftwith the 10-year-old placing himself before curling a shot about Vallejo and to the back of the web.
Who else? He also scored four goals – three to get the team that was ideal – and could’ve added more for Chelsea since the match moved on. His positioning and completing in the area has been high class and he’s going a very long way to proving that he could be the primary person for Chelsea during their move ban.
He made a couple good clearances to keep Wolves from scoring, actually picking up a yellow card for a foul and contributed in the back. It was not completely harmful to the outcome, although his goal was unfortunate and there was much he might have done about it.
Abraham is a young man full of optimism in the moment that’s fantastic for Chelsea, Frank Lampard and England. Certainly Gareth Southgate cannot ignore him if the October internationals come around.
