Tammy Abraham hits brace as Frank Lampard gets his first win as Chelsea manager

Frank Lampard needed this as much as match-winner Tammy Abraham.

On an occasion that both will remember for some time, Lampard claimed his first win as Chelsea manager largely thanks to striker Tammy Abraham first Premier League goals.

A day after Lampard implored his players to step up and start filling the goals void left by Eden Hazard, Abraham did just at Carrow Road, justifying his recall in the process with two goals either side of another impressive goalscoring contribution from Mason Mount.

The striker’s first was historic for him as he opened his top flight account to start answering those beginning to raise questions about his ability to score at the top level.

And his second was memorable too, as his first ever league from outside the box after 56 previous efforts from inside it.

Three was the number that will please Lampard the most though – the number of points his team left Norwich with after finally ensuring there was some tangible reward for their attacking improvement under their new boss.

In keeping with all of Chelsea’s performances so far this season, there would still have plenty to worry Lampard even in victory.

In a madcap four-goal first half, Chelsea continued to look as vulnerable defensively as they have done in each of their previous three games and unfazed Norwich exploited their shakiness.

But this time, Chelsea produced the goods in goal to finish victorious.
