Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham poked fun at jeering Wolves fans yesterday by holding up three fingers after his superb hat-trick at Molineux.
The 21-year-old’s devastating display was the difference for Frank Lampard’s side, who picked up their second win of the season in a pulsating 5-2 triumph.
Fikayo Tomori, another product of the Blues’ academy, broke the deadlock with an outrageous 35-yard strike in the 31st minute.
And Abraham got his first of the day three minutes later, turning in the box and converting past Rui Patricio to make it 2-0.

He got his second four minutes before half-time with a bullet header from Marcos Alonso’s cross, before turning Conor Coady inside out and slotting home brilliantly 10 minutes after the interval.
Mason Mount then capped a seven-goal thriller in the west Midlands by tucking home his third Chelsea goal deep into stoppage time after Wolves had pulled two goals back late in the second half.
It was certainly a day to remember for Abraham, who has now scored seven goals in his last three games.
The youngster has also become the youngest ever Chelsea player to score a hat-trick, and is the youngest Englishman to do so in the Premier League for almost four years.

When he was substituted in the 77th minute, Abraham was reportedly booed by home supporters after running rings around their defence for a large part of the afternoon.
And as he walked off the pitch, he reminded the Wolves faithful exactly how many he’d bagged against them by holding up three fingers.
Chelsea fans loved the “savage” gesture, taking to Reddit to hail their in-form No.9.
“I loved this when I saw it. Shut the haters up,” said one.

"Yes!!!!!! This is so savage!!!” said another.
This supporter wrote: “I hope Tammy continues this level of excellency, and becomes a legend like Drogba.”
“He loves scoring against wolves. They must hate him,” said one user.
While this fan simply stated: “Proper Chels”.
