Tammy Abraham scored a hat trick as Frank Lampard's young Chelsea side beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-2 at Molineux in the Premier League on Saturday.

Not counting own-goals, Chelsea became the first-ever team to have 11 straight Premier League goals scored by players aged 21 or younger.

Fikayo Tomori put Chelsea ahead with a superb 31st-minute strike and Abraham doubled the advantage three minutes later.

Abraham, who had netted twice in each of his previous two games, then added a header in the 41st and a 55th-minute finish to make victory look all but secure for the Blues.

Wolves hit back via an Abraham own-goal in the 69th minute and it was 4-2 in the 85th thanks to substitute Patrick Cutrone, before Mason Mount got Chelsea's fifth deep in stoppage time.

Abraham came off injured in the 77th.

After five games Chelsea has eight points - five more than Wolves.

Man United 1 Leicester City 0

Manchester United earned its first win in over a month in beating Leicester 1-0 thanks to an early Marcus Rashford penalty on Saturday.

United lost one and drew two of its last three English Premier League games, but seized the lead early against Leicester when Rashford was brought down by Caglar Soyuncu.

Rashford stepped up to score with a powerful strike from the spot in the eigth minute. He also hit the bar from a free kick late on.

Leicester, which had been unbeaten in its first four league games, nearly leveled in the 30th when goalkeeper David de Gea was forced to leap to keep out a long-range shot from Ben Chilwell. That was de Gea's second big save of the game after stopping James Maddison's shot in the opening minutes.
