MADE IN ENGLAND Tammy Abraham’s strike against Lille was Chelsea’s first Champions League goal to be scored and assisted by English players since 2012


Tammy Abraham’s brilliant debut season for Chelsea continued on Wednesday evening as he claimed his first ever Champions League goal.
The Blues forward put his side ahead when he collected a pass from Fikayo Tomori and controlled the ball before firing home.



Abraham netted the opener for Chelsea against Lille
And following his strike, a brilliant stat has emerged which has once again shown how well these young English stars are playing for Frank Lampard.

Abraham’s goal was Chelsea’s first in the Champions League scored and assisted by two English players since March 2012, when Lampard himself set up John Terry against Napoli.
Coincidentally, that was the year Chelsea went onto win their first ever Champions League title – so could this be a good omen for the west London side?
Unfortunately for Chelsea, their lead didn’t last long as Lille were level with just over half an hour gone as their leading scorer Victor Osimhen rose highest to head home a corner.

Jonathan Bamba’s flag-kick was converted by the Nigerian for his seventh goal of the season – another goal in which Chelsea have failed to deal with a set-piece.
However, thankfully for Lampard, Willian struck late on to secured a crucial first three points for the Blues in Group H.
