Chelsea faced West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night which turned out to be another late goal thriller. The 3-3 draw saw Chelsea fight back a 3-0 deficit, with Thiago Silva gaining his debut and captaincy.
Lampard the true hero:
The blues were down 3-0 in 27 minutes with Thiago Silva letting a goal go due to an absolutely awful mistake. 2 goals from Callum Robinson and 1 from Bartley made it an unforgettable start for West Brom who were desperate for a win. However, Chelsea’s youngsters showed up with goals from Mount, Hudson-Odoi and Abraham to make it 3-3 in the 93rd minute.
“We all went in and our heads were down and he had to lift us up,” Abraham told Sky Sports after the final whistle. “He said we didn’t look like a team ready to go out and win and we needed to pick each other up in the second half. Thankfully Mason 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.”
He even admitted his own mistakes, “In the first half we made it difficult for ourselves. I had a chance I should have put away and one I should be taking at this level,” he said. “They scored from every shot. We knew we had to come out in the second half and not drop our heads – and that’s what we did. “We need to cut out the mistakes as a team so we don’t concede. needed to be strong together and keep encouraging one another.”
Chelsea will now face Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday in the EFL Cup. Lampard will be hoping his new signings show up and revitalise the team.
