Tammy Abraham’s tweet about Steven Gerrard’s slip has come back to bite him

The Reds emerged victorious from a penalty shootout after the respective Champions League and Europa League winners ended extra time locked at 2-2.

It marks the second title Jurgen Klopp has brought to Anfield, denying his opposite number Frank Lampard his first managerial honour.

The Blues manager can be proud of the performance his young players produced, especially that of Tammy Abraham, who stepped up to take their fifth spot kick.

Despite appearing composed as he approached the ball, his tame strike down the middle of the goal was saved by the trailing legs of Adrian.

Abraham was understandably emotional as Liverpool’s celebrations erupted, but if he was hoping to quickly forget about it, that’s gone out the window courtesy of social media.

Last night, a tweet the young striker posted about Steven Gerrard’s slip in 2014 resurfaced.

It read: “Sorry Liverpool…. So close but so far.”

As one might expect, Liverpool fans gave Abraham a taste of his own medicine.

They replied to his old tweet with the same text, along with images of his missed penalty and the Super Cup presentation to rub salt in the wound.

Here are some of the best…

Fair play to Abraham for sticking his neck out in a match that was clearly much more than a glorified friendly for Chelsea and Liverpool, though.

After all, he’s only 21-years-old and the Super Cup final was his first appearance in a UEFA competition.

Naturally, Lampard only offered Abraham words of encouragement after the match.

“I told him not to worry,” he told the official club website.

“The fact that he’s confident and wants to step up to take the fifth penalty is pleasing to me.

“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.”
