Frank Lampard has secured his first English Premier League win as Chelsea manager with a thrilling 3-2 success away to Norwich City.

Tammy Abraham opened the scoring for Chelsea in just three minutes on Saturday and closed it with the winner off a fine drive midway through the second period.

In between, Norwich equalised through Todd Cantwell before Mason Mount restored the Chelsea advantage and Teemu Pukki levelled again inside a breathless first half.

But Abraham's 69th minute shot earned a narrowly deserved victory for Chelsea, who move on to four points from three games.

Promoted Norwich, on three, were unlucky when Ben Godfrey headed against the bar.

Later on Saturday Manchester United host Crystal Palace and leaders Liverpool host second-placed Arsenal in the late game.

Champions Manchester City travel to Bournemouth on Sunday.
