Chelsea’s First Eleven Premier League Goals Have Been Scored By Academy Graduates
Fikayo Tomori’s first goal for the club opened the scoring against Wolves and Tammy Abraham netted a hat-trick to give Frank Lampard’s side a comfortable 5-2 victory.
Abraham has now netted seven goals this season and sits atop the Premier League goal scoring charts.
He has also become the youngest player to score a hat-trick for ‘The Blues’.
He is also the first Englishman to score a Chelsea hat-trick since Lampard.
Tomori’s fantastic strike also adds to Mason Mount’s goal today as well as the midfielder’s strikes against Leicester and Norwich respectively.
@tammyabraham has become Chelsea’s youngest PL hat-trick scorer, aged 21. Eden Hazard was the previous record holder, aged 23, against Newcastle in 2014
Lampard was criticized following Abraham’s poor showing against Manchester United on the opening day.
Abraham also missed a spot-kick in the penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
Shockingly, Jose Mourinho was part of the critics who felt that Mount and Abraham underperformed in the game against Man Utd. Lampard however, hit back at his former manager, citing that he (Lampard) doesn’t care about what anyone else thinks.
Mount and Abraham have gone on to repay Lampard for the great confidence he had in them.
It’s clear that Lampard is hoping to build a strong core around these Chelsea youngsters.
