"I Will Play Chelsea’s Next Penalty" - Tammy Abraham Speaks Out After Super Cup Miss

Chelsea Striker Tammy Abraham has revealed he would be the first to volunteer to play Chelsea’s next penalty despite missing a crucial one against Liverpool in the Super Cup, MySportDab reports.

The 21-year-old’s fluffed kick cost his side the Super Cup, with Liverpool winning 5-4 in the shoot-out in Istanbul.

But rather than hiding himself away following his failure, Abraham boldly confronted the media and claimed his confidence remains unaffected.

“Will I take the next one? Yeah you know, I’ll keep going,” he said.

“I’ve scored a few. Unfortunately I missed one of the most important ones for Chelsea. But keep going.

“They say the top players always miss penalties and it’s about how you react. I’ve just got to keep pushing myself.

“I’m always someone who believes in myself with penalties. I had a few last season and few important ones. Unfortunately today probably one of my most important ones I missed. It’s about how I react and just get my head up.

“The boys have made it feel like nothing has even happened. Evenuntil now, everyone’s had their arms around me.

“They’ve said the best players miss, it’s something to learn from. It’s better it happened now than later on, you grow into a man and learn from it.

“The whole team fills me with confidence. Every training session, before every game, they always lift me.
“They have boys getting into me and trying to drive me for the game and get me up for it.

“It’s a great bunch and now we’ve just got to focus on the game against Leicester.”

Such is Abraham’s determination to look forward that he refused to get drawn into the debate surrounding images that clearly showed Liverpoolgoalkeeper Adrian had gained an unfair advantage by coming off his line before the vital spot-kick.

“It is what it is,” Abraham added.

“If they saw it they saw if they didn’t they didn’t. That’s football at the end of the day.”

Ultimately, it clouded an improved performance by Abraham from the one at Old Trafford, with his arrival as a substitute alongside Mason Mount, 20, instilling Chelsea with the energy and fire that could have won them the trophy before the lottery of penalties.
