It’s been another great week for British clubs in the Champions League with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Celtic all winning. Arsenal was unfortunate to lose 1-0 against CSKA Moscow after having Thierry Henry’s goal disallowed for an apparent handball, which was definitely a bad call.
But the biggest win of the week is definitely Chelsea’s three points against Barcelona. The Blues defence was fantastic, pressurizing Barcelona whenever they had the ball. Chelsea’s Boulahrouz, especially, closed Ronaldinho down superbly. The Russian has now proven himself a worthy addition to the west London side.
Yet again it was Didier Drogba who scored the all important goal. His clinical finish reminded me of the Chelsea versus Liverpool match earlier in the season where Drogba was the difference in a closely fought match.
The win puts Chelsea in the driving seat and now forces Barcelona to battle it out for second place in the group with Werder Bremen.
So now that we’ve seen all of the British teams in Champions League action the past few weeks, what are your thoughts on whether any of them have the ability to win the Champions League this season??
