Abraham: Tomori told me to keep going and I scored an hat-trick

Chelsea Striker Tammy Abraham said Fikayo Tomori persuaded him to stay on the pitch in the quest to score his first hat-trick for Chelsea at the start of the season.

The Blues beat wolves 5-2 on September 14 last year and Abraham admitted he got tired but he kept on going after Tomori spoke to him.

Speaking to the Chelsea official website, Abraham said: It was one of those feelings where you score in two consecutive games so you’re not under pressure to score.

"In my head, I felt there was no pressure. Fikayo had already scored a banger, then my first chance came and I took it. Then there was another one and I scored again, so we were in a great position at half-time

"I said to Fikayo, 'I’m tired, man, I might just tell the manager to replace me'. Fik was like: 'Stay on the pitch, try and get your hat-trick' because it was the second game in a row I’d scored two goals.

"I came out for the second half and then I just remember I was one-on-one with Conor Coady and the confidence that I had inside me took the tiredness away, I did that skill to get away from him and scored.

"After the game me, Mason and Fikayo were all talking and realising that we’d all just scored for Chelsea in the Premier League, so it was crazy and amazing feelings that day."
