Post-match conference: "we played really well" says Frank Lampard
“It was a tough test and Norwich will get a lot of points here because they are a very good side,” Lampard told BT Sport.
“I thought we played really well. 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.
“We need to be more clinical. First win and I’m really pleased.
“We need to win games, we’re Chelsea. Nothing is given in this league. Our performances haven't given us what we deserved so far - but today it did.”
Tammy Abraham was the star of the show for Chelsea, as the 21-year-old striker bagged a brace – his first senior goals for the club.
Lampard added on a player he is showing considerable faith in, with Mason Mount having netted the Blues’ other effort: “I'm particularly pleased for Tammy, his first goals for us 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.”
While there were plenty of positives for Lampard to take from a trip to Norfolk, he did see Pedro pick up an injury in the warm-ups and Mount take a slight knock.
Asked for an update on their respective ailments, the Blues manager said: “Pedro felt his hamstring in the warm-up so maybe a small strain there but Mason was just a kick to his calf so hopefully he can quickly recover.”
