West Brom 3-3 Chelsea: Fans think Kai Havertz got away with a handball before Tammy Abraham's equaliser


Chelsea have drawn 3-3 against West Brom at The Hawthorns.

Tammy Abraham scored in the 93rd minute to spare Frank Lampard's blushes.

The Blues were 3-0 down at half-time but staged a remarkable comeback to get a point.

Two defensive mistakes gave West Brom a 2-0 lead after just 25 minutes.

First, Marcos Alonso’s casual header was seized upon by the hosts and Callum Robinson drilled an effort beyond Willy Caballero to put them ahead.

Then, summer signing Thiago Silva slipped while in possession and Robinson latched onto the ball before coolly slotting past Caballero to double West Brom’s lead.

Things were turning into a nightmare for Lampard - and they got even worse just minutes later.

Kyle Bartley steered the ball home from close range after Chelsea failed to clear a corner.

3-0 down after 28 minutes is not how the Blues had drawn things up.


Summer arrivals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner both started the match and, against a West Brom side that had conceded eight goals in its first two league matches, both forwards would have expected more chances in the first 45 minutes.

But it wasn’t until they were 3-0 down before Chelsea really started to assert themselves.

Lampard’s half-time team talk would have been fierce and Chelsea responded by getting back into the game in the 54th minute through Mason Mount’s long range strike.

Mount looked like Lampard in the way he thumped the ball home from distance.


The second half was attack versus defence and Chelsea managed to find a way through again in the 70th minute.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, who came on at half-time, linked up well with Havertz before tucking the ball away to make it 3-2.

Silva was replaced by Olivier Giroud as Lampard made his intentions clear and Abraham scored in injury time to secure a point.

However, Kai Havertz has been accused of getting away with handball in the build up to Abraham's goal.
