In the Premier League encounter between Chelsea and Norwich City, Chelsea finally tasted a win on the back of a brace by Tammy Abraham. This was not only Chelsea’s first win of the season but also the first one under new manager Frank Lampard.

Abraham needed only three minutes to open the scoring for Chelsea. His first goal of the season set the tempo of the match and at one point it looked like Chelsea will easily win the match. However, Norwich City fought back with Todd Cantwell scoring the equaliser for them just three minutes later.

But, The Blues were not in a mood to give up and Mason Mount, one of the youngsters on whom their manager Frank Lampard is counting on, did not disappoint his coach by scoring the second goal for his team in the 17th minute of the match.

However, Norwich City equalised yet again, courtesy, a goal by Teemu Pukki at the half-hour mark. Norwich City looked a much better side after that goal.

Chelsea dominated possession of the ball but did not seem to pose any real threat. It was only in the 68th minute of the match when Abraham gave finishing touches to what he had started. His goal meant Chelsea led the scoreboard 3-2.

The Blues then almost lost their decisive lead when Gavin Massey headed in an amazing header but did not go in the net.

The win has ensured that Chelsea reach the 10th place with four points while Norwich City are at the 13th with three points.

In another encounter, Aston Villa registered their first win of the season with a 2-0 win over Everton, courtesy, a goal from Wesley Moraes and a late goal from Anwar El Ghazi.

Everton are at number 11 on the points tally, while Aston Villa are at the 15th position with three points against their name.
