Lampard singles out youngster for praise after first competitive win with Chelsea

It might have been a nervy win, but it was a win for Chelsea nonetheless. The Blues took on Norwich on Saturday with the sole aim of recording their first Premier League win of the season and did so, marching to a 3-2 triumph.

It did not take long for the London giants to score the first of their three goals. Tammy Abraham broke the deadlock after only three minutes but three minutes later, the Canaries equalized. Mount scored Chelsea's second goal, with that lead lasting longer but still only 13 minutes before Pukki made it two-all.

Abraham came to Lampard's rescue, scoring their third goal which happened to be the winning strike. Things stayed like this until the final whistle, with Super Frank recording his first victory for Chelsea in a competitive game.

After the final whistle, the boss sang Abraham's praises. The 21-year-old became the first English player to score a Premier League brace for Chelsea since Lampard himself back in 2013 and left the gaffer impressed.

"I'm delighted for Tammy, he's starting, he's competing," he told reporters.

The Europa League champions are now on four points in the Premier League. Next up for Lampard's men is a home clash with Sheffield United, who have been a tough side to break down.
