Frank Lampard has secured his first win as Chelsea boss with a 3-2 victory over Norwich City.
Chelsea are successful in their third attempt in the Premier League with a 3-2 victory over Norwich City. Manager Frank Lampard, who was longing for the first victory, got off to a flier through Tammy Abraham’s strike in the 3rd minute.
However, the hosts equalized through their midfielder Todd Cantwell three minutes after the English striker opened the game’s scoring. For the second time, the Blues lead the game through a blistering counter-attack, finished off by the academy graduate Mason Mount. When Pulisic pulled the ball back, the attacking midfielder’s supreme touch took the ball away from the defender, to find the back of the net in a spectacular fashion.
The Chelsea defence was caught napping as the Canaries talisman Teemu Pukki slotted the ball behind the back of the net with ease. When an invitation was provided to run behind the defence, he timed the run perfectly to calmly slot the ball to see the net bulging. The hosts pressed up high to take the lead, but the Blues stood strong. In the second half, Tammy Abraham scored a delightful goal, which proved to be the winner. There were no real chances created until the final whistle.
We shall look at the five talking points as Frank Lampard and Chelsea earn a much-deserved victory.
#5 Norwich ran out of steam too early
Chelsea started the game on a higher ante, but it was the hosts who did a lot of running in the first half. The Canaries worked hard in the first half – an element which worked towards the blues favour.
Once the visitors found the back of the net for the third time, Norwich struggled to win back the ball. They did not stand a chance to equalize the score – helping Chelsea’s course in the match.
Since they were building the attack from the back, Norwich midfielders were worn out because of their immense attacking and defensive contribution. Under Frank Lampard’s helm, the opponents used this methodology, but it signifies the increasing fitness levels of Chelsea.
