Two Manchester United players have sent a message of support to Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham after the Nigerian-born England international was abused racially online.

Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard sent their messages to the young Blues attacker via their respective Twitter accounts.

Tammy Abraham has received several racist comments online after he missed the vital penalty during the shootout to gift Liverpool the UEFA Super Cup title.

The 21-year-old was the only Chelsea player to miss from five penalties during the dreaded penalty shootout, while Liverpool scored all of their five penalties.

Liverpool beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties to win the Super Cup after the two sides had played out a 2-2 draw at the end of 120 minutes.

Olivier Giroud gave Chelsea a first half advantage which lasted until the start of the second half.

French striker Giroud has now scored 12 goals in his last 13 European games with the aforementioned strike against Liverpool.

The Reds equalized through Sadio Mane at the start of the second half to force extra time.

Sadio Mane scored again for Liverpool in extra time before Chelsea leveled proceedings through a Jorginho penalty after Tammy Abraham was brought down by Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian.

Both teams played out a 2-2 draw before Liverpool triumphed via penalties.
