Joe Cole reacts to Tammy Abraham’s display in Chelsea FC’s 3-2 win at Norwich
BT Sport pundit Joe Cole gives his verdict on Tammy Abraham's first Chelsea FC goal in Saturday's 3-2 win at Norwich
Joe Cole has tipped Tammy Abraham to build upon his first Blues goal after the Chelsea FC striker scored twice in a 3-2 win over Norwich City on Saturday lunchtime.
The England Under-21 international had come under pressure following three starts without a goal in the Chelsea FC team since Frank Lampard’s appointment.
Abraham drew a blank against Manchester United, Liverpool FC and Leicester City, although he hit the woodwork at Old Trafford before the Blues starlet missed the key penalty in the shootout in the Uefa Super Cup.
The former Swansea City striker required a mere three minutes to break the deadlock at Carrow Road before Todd Cantwell levelled for the hosts three minutes later.
Chelsea FC restored their lead through Mason Mount but Norwich’s in-form striker Teemu Pukki netted his fifth goal in three games to level the Premier League clash once again.
Abraham gave Chelsea FC the advantage once more in the 68th minute with a brilliant finish from outside Tim Krul’s penalty area.
Former Blues midfielder Cole believes Abraham can hit the ground running after opening his Chelsea FC account.
“I’m so pleased for Tammy,” Cole told BT Sport.
“We were starting to talk about his goal record. Now he’s off the mark. He’ll be rocking and rolling.”
Chelsea FC striker Abraham netted five times in 31 games in the Premier League during his season long loan at Swansea in 2017-18.
The Blues finished in third place in the Premier League table last term to secure a Champions League spot.
Chelsea FC lost to Liverpool FC in the Uefa Super Cup on penalties earlier this month.
