Frank Lampard secures first win as Chelsea boss

Chelsea's record goalscorer has his first win as manager of the club.

Frank Lampard's side beat Norwich City 3-2 in the Premier League lunchtime game at Carrow Road.

Reacting to the win, the 41-year-old said that there were a lot of "really good elements" of his side's performance.

"We need to win games, we're Chelsea. Nothing is given in this league, every year it seems to get harder.

"Our performances haven't given us what we deserve so far, today it did, it could have just been more comfortable."

Tammy Abraham repaid Lampard's faith in youth with two goals, his first ever for The Pensioners.

In a frantic start, Abraham opened the scoring inside three minutes for Chelsea, whose starting line-up had an average age of 24 - their youngest in the Premier League since 1994.

But Norwich equalised just three minutes later, Todd Cantwell finishing from close range from a Teemu Pukki cross.

Mason Mount restored the Blues' lead midway through the first half with his second goal of the season, but the Canaries soon pulled level once more as Pukki slotted in from a tight angle for his fifth of the campaign.

Chelsea dominated the start of the second half and were rewarded through Abraham's second - an unstoppable drive past Tim Krul - before Kurt Zouma had a goal ruled out by V-A-R after substitute Olivier Giroud was judged to have fouled the Norwich keeper.

Speaking after the game Lampard said he was particularly happy for Abraham.

"His first goals for us - he's starting and he's competing. Two really good goals and the winning goal.

"Obviously Mason as well, but I don't want to talk about just them. I want to talk about all the players out there today.

"Those conditions are hard. It's hot here against a good team and we absolutely controlled huge parts of the game.

"I'm pleased for the team and the squad as a whole."
