Frank Lampard in support of Tammy Abraham despite missing a penalty

Chelsea have lost their third UEFA Super Cup title after they suffered 5-4 defeat on penalties to Liverpool in Instanbul on Wednesday, August 14.

Abraham who was on loan with Aston Villa last season was the only one of ten penalty takes to miss a shot in the shootout and the striker was left devasted at the end of the match. 

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has consoled Abraham after his penalty miss and stressed that even the top players have missed penalties. 

''I told him not to worry. The fact that he’s confident and wants to step up to take the fifth penalty is pleasing to me,'' Lampard told Chelsea's official webpage post-match.

''I’ve been there myself, anyone can miss a penalty, but what I want is the confidence of a young player to turn up and do that.

''It’s part and parcel of being a player at the top level, which is what Tammy now is. These moments come and we have to be supportive of him because that’s football.''

Abraham won a penalty which was converted by Jorginho in extra-time and had a chance to win the game for The Blues in the closing minutes but was unable to guide his shot goalwards.
