Wolves vs Chelsea
3:00pm Saturday 14th September
Tammy Abraham scored a hat-trick that was wonderful with Fikayo Tomori also netting his first goal for the team as Chelsea beat against Wolves 5-2 on Saturday.
It had been defender Tomori (31) who got the scoring under way with a sensational long-range curler until Abraham (34, 41) added 2 more from the first half.
The 21-year-old scored another two as well, completing his hat-trick at the 54th minute prior to handing Wolves a lifeline with the unfortunate own-goal (69). Patrick Cutrone added the following for the hosts having five minutes to perform, but Mason Mount (90+6) was the last word as he slotted home with the final kick of the game.
This was the Premier League win of the year for Frank Lampard – sending Chelsea into sixth with eight factors – while liberally remain winless in the league ahead of the Europa League group stage opener on Thursday.
The introduction half an hour was a muted affair, and there was not a shot before Tomori opener at the 31st minute.
Jonny clearance located that the defender near the top of the area, also he pinged a wonderful effort into the far corner for his original Blues goal.
Three minutes after, also Abraham doubled the lead. Tomori was involved as he’d fed Mount inside the region, together with the latter going down after contact. While the crowd and players were still calling for a punishment, the loose ball dropped to Abraham that took a touch before hitting house on the flip.
The 21-year-old subsequently nabbed another double – his third in successive games – in the 41st minute as he continues to unwind in the Premier League.
Before visiting Abraham in the center, a Jesus Vallejo clearance collected at the very top right corner. As the ball has been delivered, the striker nipped to head home Chelsea’s third.
It took nine minutes of the second half to Abraham to finish his own hat-trick. A floated pass collected from Jorginho under stress from Coady, before tricking his way along with rushing onto the ball again. After that, it was a finish into the far corner because Chelsea made it four.
Abraham was involved all around the pitch and handed Wolves a way back in the match with a 69th minute own-goal. Romain Saiss led a Joao Moutinho corner towards the web, which grazed Abraham’s arm . The ball slipped through the hands of Kepa Arrizabalaga as Chelsea’s chance of a first clean sheet this season came to a finish.
It was a grandstand finish when Wolves added a second in the 85th minute. This was a deserved target after coming on at half-time for Cutrone, that excelled, after the shot of Matt Doherty had been rescued by Arrizabalaga, as he fired a volley house at close range.
However, it was not enough to inspire a comeback as Chelsea sealed the victory with the final kick of the game. It turned out to be a no-look pass by Michy Batshuyai that chose out Mount down the left, with the 10-year-old setting himself before curling a shot to the back of the web and round Vallejo.
Who else? He scored four goals – three for the team that was right – and could have added more for Chelsea as the match moved on. Completing inside the area and his positioning has been best class and he is currently going a very long way to demonstrating that he could be the man for Chelsea through their transfer ban.
He made a couple clearances to prevent anglers from scoring picking up a yellow card for a foul and contributed at the back also. Fortunately, it wasn’t completely detrimental to the last result, although his own purpose there wasn’t too much that he might have done and was unfortunate.
Ultimately, Abraham is. When the October internationals come around surely he can not be ignored by Gareth Southgate.
