Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has urged fans to be patient after their 3-3 draw at West Brom.
There was much to admire in the way the Blues fought back from 3-0 down at half-time through goals from Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Abraham, deep in added time. But Abraham knows it was two points dropped.
He said, “In the first half we made it difficult. I had a chance in the first half that I should have put away, someone at my level should take those chances. We had a few chances in the first half while West Brom scored from every shot.
“When the first few chances don’t go in you start to panic a bit and we made a few errors and at our level we should not make those errors, but we are still a work in progress and hopefully we can improve.
“We knew we had to come out in the second half and keep going and not drop our heads and that is what we did.”
Looking at the wider picture, Abraham added: “First of all we need to cut out the mistakes as a team, not just defensive work, so we don’t concede. We need to be strong together and keep encouraging one another.”
