Chelsea fight back to draw 3-3 at West Brom

Tammy Abraham netted a stoppage-time equaliser to complete an incredible comeback and rescue a point for Chelsea at West Bromwich Albion after they went down 3-0 at half-time.

The Baggies looked to be heading for their first win back in the Premier League after racing into a commanding lead inside the opening 30 minutes at The Hawthorns.

A mistake by Marcos Alonso led to the hosts’ first, Matheus Pereira feeding Callum Robinson to produce a classy finish past Willy Caballero, who was starting in place of dropped keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Thiago Silva, who was making his Premier League debut for Chelsea, was then too casual in possession, allowing Robinson to pounce and run at goal before doubling the lead with another impressive finish.

Remarkably, it was quickly 3-0 as Kyle Bartley was left unmarked to tap home inside the six-yard box after the visitors failed to deal with a corner.

But Frank Lampard’s side rallied after the break and Mason Mount reducing the deficit with a shot on the spin from 20 yards.

Substitute Callum Hudson-Odoi set up a tense finale with a stylish finish after being teed up by £71m playmaker Kai Havertz, before Abraham tapped home the equaliser in the 93rd minute after Mount’s shot had been saved.

Then draw leaves West Brom 15th on the log while Chelsea climb to sixth ahead of Sunday’s fixtures.
