Chelsea's 21-year-old striker joins exclusive club as hat-trick at Wolves takes his tally to seven goals in three matches

With his hat-trick at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, Tammy Abraham emulated a feat achieved by only Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli before him.

Abraham became just the third player aged 21 or younger in Premier League history to score at least two goals in three consecutive appearances.

Ronaldo managed this for Manchester United in December 2006, while Alli did it for Tottenham Hotspur in January 2017.

At 21 years and 347 days, Abraham also became the youngest player to score a Premier League hat-trick for the Blues.

Double figures

Chelsea's goals at Molineux continued a streak for the club's academy, too. 

All 11 of their Premier League goals this season have been scored by players who have emerged from their youth section.

Mason Mount netted his third of the season on Saturday, while Fikayo Tomori claimed his first for the Blues. 

Chelsea also became the first club to have 11 consecutive Premier League goals scored by players aged 21 or younger.

They overtook the mark of 10 goals scored by Leeds United between September and October 1999.
