Cape Town - Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was particularly pleased for Tammy Abraham after he scored twice in their 3-2 victory at Norwich City on Saturday.

Norwich twice came from behind through Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki to cancel out goals from Abraham and Mason Mount as the teams went in 2-2 at half-time.

However, Abraham produced a brilliantly taken goal to seal the match in the second half when his driven shot beat Tim Krul on 68 minutes.

Lampard told BBC Sport: “It was a tough test and Norwich will get a lot of points here because they are a good side.

"The two goals we gave away I didn’t like but there were lots of good elements to our play and i’m really pleased.”

On Abraham, Lampard added: "I’m particularly pleased for Tammy and he scored two good goals and the winning goal, but I want to talk about all the players today as we controlled the game on a hot day.

"Our performances haven’t given us what we deserved so far – but today it did.”

On injuries to players, he continued: “Pedro felt his hamstring in the warm-up but Mason was just a kick to his calf so hopefully he can quickly recover.”
