Chelsea were staring down the barrel of an unexpected defeat at The Hawthorns after an inept display of defending saw them 3-0 down inside 27 minutes. However, three minutes into injury time Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham pounced on a parried Mason Mount shot to tap home from close range and break the Baggies hearts.

Additionally, at three minutes and 20 seconds, Robinson's was the earliest goal Chelsea have conceded since May 2017, while Silva is the first outfield player to make an error leading to a goal on debut in the Premier League since Issa Diop for West Ham against Arsenal in August 2018.

"If you make mistakes you'll have an opportunity to put them right, if you don't then your opportunities will be less and less".

Chelsea fought back in the second half, capped by Abraham's stoppage-time equalizer, but once again the West London outfit were guilty of the same old defensive failings against Albion, a side many pundits have tipped for an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship.

One of them, Azpilicueta, laid on Mount to smash a swerving shot into the corner from 25 yards (meters) before the other halftime sub, winger Hudson-Odoi, exchanged a one-two with Kai Havertz and stroked a finish low into the net.

"We have two big games coming up against Tottenham (in the League Cup fourth round) and Crystal Palace. You can't legislate for the mistakes that there were today". "You can have as many meetings as you want but with those mistakes you give yourself a mountain to climb", Lampard said.

She then shared and emotional message through her instagram post where she is proudly showing off her kidney transplant scar. She also called the kidney donation the "ultimate gift and sacrifice" which she said greatly improved her quality of life.

"It brought a bit of urgency, a bit of speed of pass to move it", he added. We did that to a big degree.

Despite dropping error-prone Kepa Arrizabalaga after the goalkeeper's costly mistakes against Brighton and Liverpool this season, Lampard learned that Chelsea's problems run deeper than who is between the posts.

"That's his first Premier League game done and in the bank, we'll get more from him as he gets fitter and the team gets fitter".

"We will get a lot better, we're still finding our way with new players and a lack of preseason", Lampard said.

"You can't legislate for pure mistakes which is what it was today, then it gives you a very hard game to get back in. I'm not going to criticize every part of our game".

"Here we go again Frank Lampard with his reshaping has done Southgate again "no tactics, no game plan, just vibes".
