(CNN) — The wait is over.
After his faith in his Chelsea squad was rewarded with the away win at Norwich, frank Lampard can tick his first win as Chelsea head trainer off his record.
The normal age of the beginning line-up during an entertaining 3-2 victory of Lampard was 54 days and 25 years, Chelsea’s youngest Premier League line-up for seven years.
Tammy Abraham scored twice — his first goals for the club he joined at age seven — using the fantastic attack sealing the landmark triumph for Lampard of all an 21-year-old.
Another academy graduate, Mason Mount, backed up his entire debut for the team last week with another goal, his curler into the corner rounding outside the opener for Norwich of Todd Cantwell.
Abraham’d missed the decisive and fifth penalty for Chelsea at the European Super Cup final against Liverpool earlier this month — although Blues’ celebrity Lampard is made to stay with the youth which are spearheading his Chelsea assault.
“I am delighted for them, especially for Tammy,” Lampard told the BBC. “There’s a good deal of competition ahead. I’m not only promoting childhood that they have to (earn their place) on merit.”
