Former Chelsea man, Craig Burley, told ESPN after Arsenal’s loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League that he’s not entirely convinced that just because the Blues beat Maccabi Tel Aviv 4-0, that they’re back to winning ways.
On the flip side, he also doesn’t think that a loss for Arsenal means our entire season is derailed either and he reckons this is the best chance we’ve had at beating the Blues at Stamford bridge in a long time.
The former midfielder is completely right. Chelsea beating a club from the Israeli league at the Bridge, with all due respect, doesn’t suddenly mean the Blues are world beaters. Although it may instill an extra bit of confidence in the team, which could help them on Saturday, it doesn’t magically fix the bad form they’ve been in so far this season.
Likewise, us losing our opening Champions League fixture doesn’t mean we’re automatically going to go down hill. As long as we can pick ourselves up and learn from our mistakes in time for Saturday, we should be fine.
