Lampard fights the pressure and is rewarded for great managerial decision

Chelsea beat Norwich 3-2 at Carrow Road yesterday, and it was a real day for celebration.

Not only did we see Tammy Abraham bag both his first and second goals for the club – 15 years in the making – we also saw Mason Mount score for the second match in a row. It was perhaps even better than his strike against Leicester last week.

But while the midfielder went for what’s becoming his classic celebration – a lovely Didier Drogba/Eden Hazard style knee slide to the corner – Tammy did something a little more unique.

The striker sprinted straight for the bench, and went directly to hug Frank Lampard.

The pressure had been on the new Chelsea boss to drop Abraham after he’d failed to score in his two starts this season. It would perhaps have been the easy decision to drop the youth player for the more experienced Olivier Giroud. Instead Lampard kept the faith, and was rewarded with two goals, as well as a superb show of love from his number nine.
