    who are you kidding!!!!! champions league? chelsea are still waiting for a win in the pre-season.

    Wasn’t it the quarter-finals that Chelsea got knocked out of, and Inter went on to beat Barcelona in the semis?

    No, it was the last sixteen.

  5. Chelsea are short of fitness at the moment but you cant judge a lot from the pre-season. I expect them to win the Premier League + the Champions League is a distinct possibility.
