Frank Lampard praises 21-year-old after win over Norwich City

Abraham stars for Chelsea in first win of the season

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has reserved special praise for striker Tammy Abraham in the aftermath of the 3-2 Premier League win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

The striker has come for much criticism from the fans over the past few weeks but he managed to redeem himself with his first two goals for the club including a stunning winner through a counter-attack.

Speaking after the game, Lampard praised the marksman for his efforts but also stated that it was combined performance from the team which contributed towards the victory.

"I'm particularly pleased for Tammy and he scored two good goals and the winning goal, but I want to talk about all the players today as we controlled the game on a hot day," he told BBC Sport.

The Blues took the lead twice during the opening half but on both occasions, the Canaries were able to nullify the deficit. Ultimately, it was Abraham, who was the man of the moment with a 68th-minute winning strike.
