Chelsea away in the League Cup would have been worse but Chelsea at home isn’t as bad as it could have been. Tie of the round etc and a deffo for Sky surely? We play them again a few days later at their hovel – which would we prefer to win? Both says I.
PSG; Napoli; Red Star Belgrade: Our European opponents for 2018. Let’s be honest, could have been worse, not much but worse. PSG are the Manchester City of France, Napoli is probably the most hostile place to go in Italy and Red Star have a history. PSG might be slightly worried, Napoli will be gnashing teeth and Red Star thinking there’s some money in it for them.
Not quite the landslide some were predicting but three points all the same. It wasn’t good, not all of it anyway but a clean sheet and a juggling act as well.
