The London club, Chelsea, got their first win in three matches yesterday. Having been named the youngest Chelsea team since February 1994, many expected the lads to prove themselves in their side's clash with Norwich City.

Lampard was overjoyed, as he ran into the pitch when the final whistle was blown. He finally got his first win as Chelsea's manager at Stamford Bridge.

Three minutes into the Saturday early kick off against Norwich, Tammy Abraham rewarded Frank Lampard's faith in him by brilliantly converting a half-volley shot off an Azpilicueta's cross. Tammy celebrated his opener by running into the arms of his manager.

The Carnaries were able to get in behind central-defensive duo, Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma, twice in the first half.

The England international, Abraham, stepped up once again. His second goal of the day, the third for Chelsea as he cut inside on the edge of the box, beating Tim Krul in goal for Norwich with a low drive.

Abraham, whose performance against Manchester United on opening day fixtures was questioned, was also the target of an unfortunate racist abuse after he missed the crucial penalty in Chelsea's UEFA Super Cup shootout loss to Liverpool. However, he became the man of the match, scoring two crucial goals to hand Lampard his first win in the EPL after three games.
