latest news stories from around Chelsea Football Club as Frank Lampard looks to bounce back from the UEFA Super Cup loss against Liverpool with a win against Leicester City
The new season got under way last weekend, but it was a bad start for Chelsea, losing 4-0 at the hands of Manchester United in their opening match of the season.
And the Blues followed that up with the UEFA Super Cup clash against Liverpool, losing on penalties to Jurgen Klopp’s side after Olivier Giroud and Jorginho had scored for Frank Lampard’s side in a 2-2 draw after extra time.
Tammy Abraham was the subject of “disgusting” abuse following his missed penalty, and has received the support of his manager as well as Chelsea legend John Terry.
But the focus now switches to their first home game of the season, as Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City side head to Stamford Bridge.
