Tammy Abraham: ‘To come back from 3-0 is never easy, give credit to boys who never dropped their heads

The striker points out that Chelsea kept going even though it looked like it was impossible to avoid defeat against West Bromwich.

“We knew we had to come out in the second half and try to get that early goal and thankfully Mason did which gave us good belief,” Tammy Abraham said of Chelsea’s comeback against West Brom, as quoted by the Blues’ official website.

“I knew we would get a few chances. To come back from 3-0 is never easy, and give credit to the boys who never dropped their heads. We kept going even though it looked like it was impossible.”


Mason Mount scores cracker to restore some Chelsea pride

Chelsea were 3-0 down at half time, and there was no way Frank Lampard wasn’t going to make changes.

One of them was taking off Mateo Kovacic, and while some fans were moaning that the manager should have removed Mason Mount instead, they were soon silenced when the number 19, having been spared the chop, blasted home from outside the box to make the score a little less embarrassing.

There’s no doubt it’s been an utter disaster nevertheless, but Mount is proving his worth once again. That’s some consolation, at least.

Kai Havertz and CHO link up for Chelsea second as Blues battle back

Callum Hudson-Odoi added this latest effort, playing a gorgeous 1-2 with Kai Havertz and then sliding the ball home to make things a little less embarrassing. The winger has been impressive since coming on, and may well have earned a start next time out.

We still think a West Brom goal looks as likely as a Chelsea third, but at least this isn’t as embarrassing.

Tammy Abraham taps in to make it 3-3 in wild game at the Hawthorns

The Blues were 30 down at half time, but they’ve dragged themselves level in extra time with a goal from Tammy Abraham to make it 3-3.

The pressure on the West Brom goal had built and built, and there were only so many heroic blocks that the Baggies could throw in.

In the end, with Chelsea in all out attack mode, Tammy Abraham was able to squeeze the ball home to equalise after what felt like an eternity of pinball in the box.

It was a classic bit of poaching from Tammy, who peeled off at the back post when he smelt that the ball might just run free.

It did, and he was on hand to tap the ball in.
