West Brom raced into a shock 3-0 lead in Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea, and Tammy Abraham has hailed Frank Lampard and Mason Mount for their roles in an inspiring comeback.
Mount started the fightback 10 minutes after the restart, with Callum Hudson-Odoi also scoring before Abraham spared the Blues’ blushes with his last-gasp goal earning a 3-3 draw.
Abraham admitted afterwards that he should have done better with a chance in the first half – and lifted the lid on what Lampard said to stir his side from their slumbers.
“In the first half we made it difficult for ourselves,” Abraham said on Sky Sports. “I had a chance I should have put away and one I should be taking at this level.
“They [West Brom] 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.”
On Lampard’s half-time team talk, Abraham added: “We all went in and our heads were down and he had to lift us up.
“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.”
