Tammy Abraham’s injury-time equaliser completed a dramatic Chelsea comeback at the Hawthorns, as the Blues were 3-0 down at half-time after some horrendous defending.

Callum Robinson capitalised on a poor Chelsea defending to score in the 4th and 25th minute, while Kyle Bartley scored two minutes later to increase Chelsea’s woes.

However, the response in the second half was great, with Mason Mount scoring ten minutes into the second half. Callum Hudson-Odoi got another in the 70th minute, while Tammy Abraham bagged a late goal to seal a famous Chelsea comeback.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Abraham revealed that Lampard lifted the players with his team talk at half-time.

“We all went in and our heads were down and he had to lift us up,” Abraham told Sky Sports after the game.

“He said we don’t look like a team willing to go out in the second half and as a team, we have to lift each other.”

“Thankfully Mason [Mount] got the goal which meant we could believe. I knew we’d get chances but to come back from 3-0 is never easy. The boys deserve credit, they kept going.”
