West Bromwich Albion vs. Chelsea – Football Match Report – September 26, 2020

Chelsea came from three goals down to rescue an improbable 3-3 draw at West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday.

Three first-half goals — including a brace from Callum Robinson — seemed to be an insurmountable obstacle for Frank Lampard’s side to overcome at the Hawthorns. However, a Tammy Abraham brace and a Mason Mount strike secured a point for the visitors.

The draw moved Chelsea into sixth place with four points from three matches, while West Brom sit in 15th with just a point.

The hosts wasted little time to open the scoring and it was Robinson who did the honours after just four minutes when he fired home from an angle just inside the box after an errant Marcos Alonso header started the attack.

Robinson was celebrating again in the 25th minute thanks to another gift from a Chelsea defender, this time it was Thiago Silva who failed to control a simple back pass and allowed the quick-thinking striker in behind the defense — his right-footed blast beating Willy Caballero down and to his right before skipping in.

The half got even worse for the Blues just three minutes later through Kyle Bartley, who, following a corner, coolly side-footed home from inside the box after a Darnell Furlong header found him all alone behind the Chelsea defence.

Chelsea pulled a goal back 10 minutes after the restart when Mount unleashed an unstoppable shot from outside the box that left Sam Johnstone motionless in the West Brom goal.

Chelsea added another through Abraham with a well-worked combination with Kai Havertz 11 minutes later — the former Swansea and Aston Villa loanee firing inside the far post and beating Johnstone.

And they completed the rousing comeback in second-half stoppage time when Abraham tapped in after Johnstone spilled a low shot with traffic in front of him.
