Chelsea's Tammy Abraham: We can take our anger out on Liverpool


The youth and the confidence or sporting arrogance it brings is a thing of beauty most fans want to see in their players. But it's usually a thorn in the eye of opposing players. Chelsea supporters will most likely like the attitude their upcoming young player Tammy Abraham has shown following a Champions League loss to Valencia. Abraham aims to take it out on a different opponent - the champions of Europe.

On Sunday, Chelsea awaits Liverpool at home and Abraham believes it is a good opportunity to play the Reds after a loss.

"It is a test of character. We can take our anger out against Liverpool. "It's a massive game and both teams will be going to win. We'll look forward to putting tonight's defeat right," said the 21-year-old.

But a Champions League loss is one of the bad signs of the young team. Yet, Abraham doesn't despair.

"It's still early doors. We're fuming we lost today. But there's still five games to go - we just have to win our next five. We're obviously disappointed. We didn't play our best football. Valencia came and stopped us playing the way we wanted so you have to give them credit. We're going to have a lot of ups and downs in a season. We've got to move on and not dwell on it."


After missing the penalty in the European Supercup, Abraham went on to score seven goals in five Premier League matches. He gives his thanks to the manager Frank Lampard for supporting him.

"I have to give it to the manager and the players. I had a little situation against Liverpool where I missed a penalty myself and from there they just supported me and believed in me. I'm playing with such great players who create chances, so I just have to be in the right place at the right time. It's always nice to know the manager believes in you. Every game you want to do your best for him," said Abraham.
