Lampard says Chelsea’s misfiring strikers will come good

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard needs a win at Norwich to ease the questioning of his tactics

Starting XI: Kepa (6); Azpilicueta (7), Christiansen (6) Zouma (6), Emerson (6); Jorginho (6), Kovacic (6), Mount (8); Barkley (6), Abraham (8), Pulisic (7).

During his debut campaign for Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi racked up an impressive five goals and five assists, but he saw his season ended abruptly by injury.

The 20-year-old is the heartbeat of Frank Lampard's side and he provided the spark for nearly everything good at Carrow Road, just like he was in their first two games against Manchester United and Leicester City.

Frank Lampard will toast his first win as Chelsea boss by spending the evening in front of a baby monitor after his young Blues downed Norwich.

Norwich's Todd Cantwell (one goal, two assists) has already been directly involved in as many Premier League goals in three games as he was in 24 Championship appearances last season.

Frank Lampard has endured a frustrating start to life as Chelsea manager with the former midfielder suffering a thumping 4-0 defeat to Manchester United on the opening weekend before seeing his side held to a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester last time out. Because you away from it at Chelsea. "I can trust my players".

"I'm particularly pleased for Tammy 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".

Daniel feels that there is nothing but positives to take away from the win.

"It was a good performance and he got what he needed out of the game".

Kante will be assessed before the game at Carrow Road, with defender Antonio Rudiger also out but hoped to be back in contention for next weekend as the Blues face another promoted side in Sheffield United.

Recalled in place of Olivier Giroud, striker Abraham justified his coach's faith by netting twice in a 3-2 thriller at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Since the start of last season, Norwich's league matches have seen a total of 164 goals scored (99 for, 65 against), more than any other side in the top four tiers of English football in this time (excluding play-offs).
