Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has equaled the record set by his manager Frank Lampard while he was a player at Stamford Bridge after his brace against newly promoted side Sheffield United on Saturday evening.

Tammy Abraham and Chelsea were forced to a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in their league clash.

England international Tammy Abraham was the star of the show for Chelsea after he scored a brace to match the record of Frank Lampard.

Current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard became the first Englishman to score two goals in two successive league games for the Blues in January 2010 and Tammy Abraham has matched that record nine years later.

The Nigerian-born England striker scored a first half brace to edge Chelsea 2-0 ahead at the halftime interval before Sheffield United roared back into the game with two goals in the second half.

Callum Robinson pulled one back for the Blades immediately after the halftime interval before a late Kurt Zouma own goal secured Sheffield United a 2-2 draw at the home of one of the biggest teams in England.

Tammy Abraham has now scored four goals in his last two league games after hitting a brace during the 3-2 away win over another promoted team, Norwich City, last weekend.
