Frank Lampard’s side were beaten by Liverpool in a penalty shootout, with 21-year-old Abraham missing the decisive spot-kick.
Abraham was then the target of racist abuse on social media and the youngster spoke out about inexcusable attacks after Chelsea’s draw with Leicester City on Sunday.
‘I think things happen in football.’ Abraham told Sky Sports about the penalty miss. ‘Unfortunately for me I was on the receiving end of it..
‘I’m experienced, but I’ve had experiences of taking penalties under pressure and tucking them away, unfortunately for me, I missed.
‘I got abuse, but I’m a positive guy. I don’t listen to the rubbish. I don’t bring people down, keep focused on me and keep going.’
‘You want to silence the haters and do your business on the pitch,’ he continued. ‘Let the football do the talking.’.
Chelsea plan to take the strongest action against any fans guilty of racism towards Abraham and Lampard admitted the incident infuriated him.
‘Tammy is more than disappointed. I am disgusted by a so-called Chelsea fan,’ Lampard said.
‘I don’t know how it’s allowed on the [social media] platforms. It’s too easy, so something needs to be done..
‘I’m so angry for Tammy and angry for us as a club because that’s not what we’re about, the club does a lot of work against discrimination on all levels.
‘It’s a setback when these things happens. I have spoken with Tammy, he is a strong character.
‘He’s infectious, he is a great young man and his football career is ahead of him.
‘It will be a test of his character that he shouldn’t need.’
