After a scoreless first half, the Blues stepped up their game to secure maximum points thanks to goals from Jorginho’s penalty and a strike from Willian.
The game at Stamford Bridge was Abraham’s sixth start for Frank Lampard’s men in the English top-flight this term. He did well combining with Pedro and Mason Mount.
In the 61st minute, a backpass from Dale Stephens was cut out by Abraham who poked an effort towards goal, but Mathew Ryan blocked the effort with his body.

The 21-year-old was a thorn in the flesh of Graham Potter’s men as he recorded five shots, 27 touches and 75% passing accuracy.
Abraham was replaced by Michy Batshuayi in the 83rd minute as Lampard’s team moved up to sixth spot in the English top-flight.
Four days later, they travel to St. Mary’s Stadium for a date with Southampton.
