Champions League that aired out on Tuesday Chelsea concede a home defeat from Valencia. The situation has forced Chelsea to plan on taking out Champions League “anger” on Liverpool in the Premier League clash this Sunday.
Chelsea was beaten 1-0 at home by Valencia in their opening group H fixture after Ross Barkley missed a late penalty for Frank Lampard’s side.
Abraham seemed not to go well with the defeat. The striker who has emerged as Chelsea’s first-choice for the first time in the season played down the defeat and immediately looked ahead to Sunday’s game.
“Sunday is a test of character. We can take our anger out against Liverpool.” He said at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s a massive game and both teams will be going to win. We will look forward to putting this defeat right.”
“It’s still early doors in the Champions League. We’re fuming we lost today. But there are still five games to go. We just have to win our next five.”
“We’re disappointed. We didn’t play our best football. Valencia came and stopped us from 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.”
Abraham is one of the several academy graduates to have been given a chance under Lampard this season. He is also the England youth star who has scored seven Premier League goals so far, hailed the backing of his manager.
“I have to give my form to the manager and players,” he said. “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. In every game, you just want to do the best for him.”
