Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker and Jonathan Woodgate were on punditry duties for the BBC for Chelsea’s game against Middlesbrough today, and presumably they were hoping for a Boro win – not just for moral reasons, but also in the interests of an exciting game.
Chelsea were so impressive tonight though, that even they had to hail Tuchel’s team’s “superb” performance. They went through the team and picked out some individual performances – but really it was a team effort more than anything else.
The haters will have to wait for the next round for another chance to see us get knocked out.
