Chelsea striker Abraham breaks Hazard record with treble

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham broke a record held by Eden Hazard in victory at Wolves.

He is now the youngest player to score a hat-trick at the club.

The 21-year-old was on fire against Wolves, netting his first on the 34-minute mark before bagging two more either side of the half time break.

Hazard previously held the record for being the youngest player at Chelsea to score a hat-trick in a professional game against Newcastle back in 2014.

But Hazard was 23 at the time in the 3-0 win, meaning Abraham has beaten the record by a staggering two years.

Abraham has also become the first English player to score a hat-trick for Chelsea since Frank Lampard all the way back in 2011.
