Norwich 2-3 Chelsea: Abraham nets brace as Lampard’s side win 1st PL game



Tammy Abraham has helped his side pick their first three points after netting a brace in 3-2 win against Norwich to hand Frank Lampard his first Premier League win in charge of the club.

After just three minutes through the well-taken objective of Abraham, it was Chelsea who opened the scoring, only for the hosts to match 156 seconds later as local boy Todd Cantwell side-footed home after some beautiful build-up play.

In what was an action-packed first half at a sun-drenched Carrow Road, however, the visitors soon found themselves back in front thanks to Mason Mount’s composed finish.

However, as the in-form Teemu Pukki scored five objectives in his first three Premier League appearances, Norwich battled back to level matters again on the half-hour mark, only for Abraham to win it with his second objective halfway through the second half.

Pulisic played in Azpilicueta on the overlap and the full-back picked out Abraham, who then sent a first-time finish past Krul from inside the box.

Cantwell showed some good footwork playing across to Pukki, who slayed it on a plate for his team-mate to side-foot through the legs of Kepa from close range.

Mount scored his two goals in two games. Norwich did well to play the ball out from the back, but Pulisic slipped it to Mount, who brought it inside and fired a shot past Krul.

Pukki got in behind the Chelsea defence and fired the ball across Kepa from a tight angle to make it five Premier League goals in three matches.

Kepa parries Buendia’s long-range shot into the path of Hanley, but the center-back was unable to beat the Chelsea keeper from the follow-up attempt.
