What a week for the Premier League! All four finalists in the Champions and Europa League are English clubs: Liverpool v Spurs; Arsenal v Chelsea. This is the first time that one country has provided all four finalists, and is really pissing off fans from certain continental clubs (especially Milan and Juventus)!
The surprise omissions from these four are both Manchester clubs. City is surprising, as they are (grudgingly) being recognised as the best team in the world right now; United, less so as they are a complete shambles at the moment.
Who cares? It’s been a great week to watch some thrilling and dramatic matches. Liverpool and Spurs achieving “impossible” comebacks; Arsenal clinically dispatching Valencia at the Mestalla; and Chelsea going through on penalties against a very impressive Eintracht Frankfurt side. Thank gods that boring Spanish domination has ended.
