Chelsea's First Eleven Premier League Goals Have Been Scored By Academy Graduates

Chelsea's First Eleven Premier League Goals Have Been Scored By Academy Graduates

Chelsea's first eleven Premier League goals under Frank Lampard have all come from 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.





Lampard took the Chelsea job despite the transfer ban placed on the club.

His use of Abraham drew criticism following a 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.

Since then, he hasn't looked back.

Lampard has also used Mount and Tomori who he had on loan at former club Derby County last season.

It's clear that Lampard is hoping to build a strong core around these Chelsea youngsters.

With Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James also waiting in the wings, there could be more young English players ready to break into Lampard's side
