Tammy Abraham breaks two-decade record with Chelsea double

The 21-year-old becomes the third-youngest Blues player to get a Premier League double after Mark Nicholls and Eddie Newton

Tammy Abraham’s double against Norwich City in Chelsea's 3-2 victory on Saturday means he becomes the Blues' third-youngest player to score a Premier League brace, and the youngest to score twice in the top flight since 1998.

The attacker struck a delicious first-time volley past Tim Krul after three minutes, and then added the winner in the second half after Norwich had twice equalised.

At just 21 years and 326 days old, the wonderkid takes his place in the Chelsea history books alongside Eddie Newton, who achieved the feat at 20 years and 358 days, and Mark Nicholls, who holds the record after netting at 20 years, 225 days in 1998.
