Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham is hoping he won’t be out for a long time after an injury scare against Valencia.
The forward had to be subbed off from Wednesday’s UCL clash on a stretcher after a coming together with Ezequiel Garay just before the 45th minute.
Even if he was in terrible pain, after the game, the youngster said he is optimistic about his prognosis.
His words, “It’s much better, much better than when it happened,”
At the time I was fearful of the worst obviously, but I got in and was able to walk again, move about.
“I’m thankful, hopefully it’s not too long. I’ll have a scan tomorrow to see what the news is but hopefully it is just a bruise. It was a knee near my hip arena, hopefully it’s nothing too serious.”
Lampard also said, “The word at half-time was it looked quite severe, a bang on the hip,”
“Then the word after the game was it might not be as severe as we first thought. That’s as much details as I have.”
On the 2-2 draw vs Valencia, “We both had incredible chances, we had one in the first few minutes,”
“We had numerous ones in the first half, so did they. Maybe their chances were more clear-cut than ours.
“I wouldn’t say I feel fortunate. Did I love the match? No I didn’t love it. Because it hasn’t been many times this season where I have had to say ‘we kind of got away with that’. Today was one of those because they missed big opportunities.
“Perhaps we deserved the slices of luck that we got tonight, but I won’t take away from the fact that we have to take some of our opportunities. It could have been 5-5, 6-6, one of those games.”
