After each one of the trio spent last season on loan in the Championship, Abraham reflecting on their collective journey so far ahead of tonight's huge Champions League clash with Valencia.
Speaking after the 2-2 draw at the Mestalla, Abraham downplayed the significance of the injury. The recent revelation that he has ordered big fines for turning up late for training, among other offences, gave further credence to the belief that the Blues boss isn't to be trifled with. But we've got to stick together and leave it all out there. Ross knows how I felt about the first headline.
"Hearing the Champions League music in the background; we were all in the Championship the season before".
"I watch so many. Harry Kane, (Sergio) Aguero, (Roberto) Firmino, these are Premier League strikers obviously but also (Robert) Lewandowski and all sorts and players who have played in this competition before".
Barkley is battling back from ankle trouble, and while he still has his manager's backing, Lampard was quick to challenge the 25-year-old to shape up.
And many people believe that things won't be too different this time and if the manager is booed and jeered at then it could actually put him off forcing Chelsea to lose focus.
"I didn't like our defending in the final 20 minutes against Valencia, but overall I'm not concerned about the defence".
"As a player I was always determined against West Ham of course, I think that's very natural when it is one of your ex-teams".
"I certainly don't hold anything against my players".
Lampard says Barkley still remains part of his plans and he "needs now to show all his reactions on the pitch".
