Tammy Abraham Scores Two as Chelsea Rolled over West Ham
Chelsea’s England international Tammy Abraham scored twice as Chelsea ended their recent mini-slump by beating West Ham United at Stamford Bridge. The Blues beat David Moyes side 3-0 to move up to fifth in the Premier League table.
Chelsea suffered Back-to-back defeats but have now returned to winning ways thanks to Tammy Abraham. Thiago Silva opened the scores with a powerful header in the 10th minute of the game.
Timo Werner spurned a couple of good chances to add to the hosts’ lead but he played his part in his side’s second 12 minutes from time as his scuffed shot was turned in by Abraham.
The Chelsea striker, back in the side in place of Olivier Giroud, then netted another barely two minutes later when he was in the right place to pick up the loose ball and curl home after Christian Pulisic had missed a simple header from a cross.
The scoreline somewhat flattered Chelsea with West Ham have been the better side for large periods, but the visitors paid the price for a lack of a cutting edge as they finished the game without a shot on target.
It was Silva’s first Premier League goal and the time it came was the perfect time to helped settle the nerves a little but their play soon became scrappy and West Ham took control instead.
It was a much-needed win for Frank Lampard’s team, with the only real frustration the continued disappointing form of Werner in front of goal.
