Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, has revealed Frank Lampard’s half-time team talk as they trailed 3-0 to West Brom on Saturday.

Lampard told his players “they don’t look like a team willing to go out in the second half” and urged them to “lift each other”.

The Blues were three goals down, thanks to sloppy goals conceded within 27 minutes.

Lampard rung the changes after the break, taking off Mateo Kovacic for Calum Hudson-Odoi and Alonso for Cesar Azpilicueta.

Mason Mount netted after 55 minutes to begin the comeback, with substitute Hudson-Odoi grabbing the second and Tammy Abraham netting the equaliser in stoppage time.

“We all went in and our heads were down and he had to lift us up,” Abraham told Sky Sports.

“He said we don’t look like a team willing to go out in the second half and as a team, we have to lift each other.

“Thankfully Mason [Mount] got the goal which meant we could believe. I knew we’d get chances but to come back from 3-0 is never easy. The boys deserve credit, they kept going.”
