'He'll score a goal in the next game and everything will be forgotten': Christian Pulisic gives Tammy Abraham support after UEFA Super Cup penalty missChristian Pulisic says Tammy Abraham will bounce back from his penalty missThe striker missed in Chelsea's Super Cup final shootout defeat by LiverpoolPulisic believes the defeat in Istanbul was 'harsh' on Frank Lampard's menThe American made his first Blues start in a 2-2 draw at Istanbul Park

Christian Pulisic said he and his Chelsea team-mates would get behind Tammy Abraham after his Super Cup penalty shoot-out miss against Liverpool.

Frank Lampard's reign as Blues boss got off to the worst possible start on Sunday as a second-half capitulation resulted in an embarrassing 4-0 loss at Manchester United.

Chelsea had precious little time to dust themselves down before Wednesday's Super Cup clash in Istanbul, where they drew 2-2 with Jurgen Klopp's Champions League winners after extra-time and went to penalties.

Back-up goalkeeper Adrian denied substitute Abraham to seal the Reds' 5-4 triumph in Turkey, but Pulisic struck an optimistic tone after the defeat and was confident the miss would have no long-term impact on the England Under-21 forward.

'It's penalties, man - somebody has to miss,' Pulisic said.

'He's going to get his head up. Obviously it's tough but penalties are like that. He can deal with it and he'll be fine.

'He'll move on, he'll score a goal in the next game and everything will be forgotten. We're there for him.'

Christian Pulisic believes Abraham will get back on track with a goal in his next game.

Pulisic felt it was the second game in a row where Chelsea's performance had not been rewarded with the right result.

'It was harsh on us,' the United States international said.

'A few things just didn't go our way, a few decisions and in the end, to lose on penalties, that's just how it goes.

'But we can be really proud of how we played. I don't feel that we had a fair result at Old Trafford either.

'We've been creating enough chances to win these games and we just have to keep going and keep fighting.'

Abraham missed the only penalty of the shootout; seeing his effort saved by Adrian

Pulisic had a goal ruled out for offside after setting up Olivier Giroud's opener, only for Sadio Mane to level shortly after half-time.

The Senegal international put Liverpool ahead early in extra-time, only for Jorginho to make it 2-2 after Adrian was adjudged to have brought down Abraham in the box.

The striker wasted a great chance to win the Super Cup before the match went to a shoot-out, where Adrian denied the 21-year-old's decisive spot-kick.

There does appear to be a real togetherness being fostered by Lampard, whose belief in youth and understanding of the club's values makes Pulisic confident that a first win is close.

'It's been great working with him,' the ex-Borussia Dortmund star said.

'We've learned a lot so far and I think you can see the team forming.

'We have a lot of great players which makes it easier. We're on a good path.

'I felt great,' Pulisic said after his first start.

'To be out there with these guys... they are easy to play with. I'm happy that I can get some more minutes in and move forward with this team.'
