Tammy Abraham fumes after Cesar Azpilicueta refuses Chelsea penalty plea
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was left sulking after being denied the chance to take a penalty for the Blues against Crystal Palace this afternoon.
The attacker tried to pinch the spot-kick less than 10 minutes from time, moments after regular taker Jorginho had already made it 3-0 to the home side from the penalty spot.
The first penalty was given after Crystal Palace youngster fouled Abraham in the area.
And Jorginho calmly slotted home to wrap the game up.
But minutes after, when Kai Havertz was brought down in the area, Abraham wanted the second penalty for himself.
Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta was having none of it, however, storming over to diffuse the situation and handing the ball to Jorginho.
Abraham walked off, head down, clearly unhappy he wasn't allowed to step up.
Jorginho scored once again, making it 4-0 to Frank Lampard's men.
The game was poised at 0-0 at half-time, with neither side dominating the clash.
But Chelsea turned on the style after the interval, with summer signing Ben Chilwell opening the scoring on his Premier League debut for the club.
The left-back then turned provider by crossing for fellow defender Kurt Zouma to head home for the second.
Jorginho's two penalties sealed the deal for Chelsea, who bounced back from their Carabao Cup defeat in midweek.
Abraham got the nod by Lampard, playing down the middle, with Timo Werner out wide.
It wasn't clear whether the former Aston Villa loanee would get much of a chance this term after Lampard splashed £50m on the latter from RB Leipzig.
