TAMMY ABRAHAM earned Frank Lampard his first Chelsea win — but was left behind in Norwich.
Striker Abraham, 21, scored twice in a 3-2 victory over the Canaries.
Yet the Blues squad left Carrow Road for Norwich airport without their hero.
It took Abraham two hours after Saturday’s final whistle to provide a urine sample for drugs testers.
So he had to return to London in a car with other club officials.
Abraham said: “When I got my first club goal I was over the moon and didn’t know how to celebrate.
“I just ran over to the manager to thank him.”
Boss Lampard said: “Youngsters don’t just get games because I am promoting youth. They have to do it on credit.”
Gareth Southgate on Thursday picks his England squad for forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with Bulgaria and Kosovo.
Asked about Mason Mount, 20, and Abraham’s chances, Lampard said: “It is Gareth’s shout.
“I’d be delighted if they are in this time but I’m sure they’ll get recognition.”
