London, Aug 25 (IANS) Chelsea has defeated Norwich City 3-2 on the strength of a brace by Tammy Abraham, earning its first win of the season in the Premier League third match-day.
Abraham needed only three minutes to get Chelsea on the scoreboard, scoring his first goal of the season and setting his team on the way of what seemed to be an easy win on Saturday, reports Efe news.
The recently promoted Norwich City, however, fought back with Todd Cantwell drawing his team level just three minutes later.
Chelsea was not ready to give up just yet as Mason Mount, one of the promising players on whom Lampard counts on, proved his coach right by scoring the second goal in the 17th minute.
At the half-hour mark, Norwich City hit again this time on a goal by Teemu Pukki who raised his tally to five atop of the top-scorers list.
The goal seemed to have boosted Norwich City’s morale, as it sought out its second consecutive win of the season on the counter-attack.
Chelsea, meanwhile, controlled ball possession but did not pose any real threat to the opposite goal bar an attempt by Emerson Palmieri that was blocked by the goalkeeper.
It was not until the 68th minutes when Abraham completed what he had started, that his shot found the back of the net to make the score 3-2.
The Blues nearly lost their lead when Gavin Massey played an amazing header, but it hit the woodwork.
After the win, Chelsea holds the 10th spot with four points, while Norwich City is in 13th place with three points.
