Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was in tears when he was forced off at half time of his sides Champions League clash with Valencia last night.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw and Chelsea are counting themselves lucky to get at least a point after looking in bits defensively.
There wasn’t a lot Abraham could do to help whilst he was on the pitch, and the Blues top goalscorer reveals it was just as hard watching the game afterwards.
Abraham went down after jumping to challenge for a cross, he ended up landing awkwardly on his hip and has suffered some bruising that is hopefully not too serious, according to the player himself in an interview with the Chelsea website.
But as we all know when trying to watch a stream of football on your device, it is often 1 or 2 minutes behind the play and you end up getting frustrated if you see a notification of a goal come up.
Abraham has revealed he had similar issues in the changing rooms trying to watch the second half after he got injured.
He told the Chelsea website:
“I went to the changing room and I was watching it on my phone. My phone was a couple of minutes behind so I could hear everything from the fans, the reactions and all sorts.
“I was watching it and just shaking, I wish I didn’t get injured and was still out there.
“We are pleased with a point. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We had to stick together.
“They are a top side and created a lot of chances, but we know it’s in our hands.”
And on Mateo Kovacic’s first goal for Chelsea, Abraham said:
“I was very pleased for him, but I’m not sure about the celebration!
“Everyone is delighted for him. He deserved it, he played outstandingly and the goal just tops it off.
“Everyone gave a great performance so a good result in the end.”
