Alvaro Morata taking a second to contemplate life after being nutmegged by Edin Dzeko. #CHEROM

Dzeko was unplayable tonight

The title for this post is spot on lmao I feel bad for him but it's hilarious how he just stands there like "What is even my life"

Mirror of Alvaro Morata taking a second to contemplate life after being nutmegged by Edin Dzeko. ...

If the original post is already a Streamable link, and I posted a Streamable version of it, it acts as a mirror in case the original is taken down. If I still offended you, well... can't please every human.

I'm a bot. Leave me some feedback if possible! :)

“Against” is implied in that turn of phrase.

Iraqi defender Alaa Mhawi on playing against Neymar: "I wound him up, telling him that Ronaldo is the best player in the world. I didn't expect it to work but it made him angry!"

Neymar is one of those who spams "GOAT" on Messi posts, can see why he got angry.

Nah he is wrong, Ronaldo is 2nd to Messi

Why did this become a Messi vs Ronaldo thread again smfh

what a wasted oportunity,should have gone with the "trying to escape messi shadow" meme

alaa mhawi clearly doesnt follow /sub/soccer

Without Kante we are 15/16 team,

We beat Tottenham

The actual state of our so called fans regarding the man who lead us to the league last season. Buy yourself a dictionary and look up the word respect

Chelsea played like this against City & Tottenham with Kante in the team though.

Only 5 teams manage to have a perfect #UCL group stage record halfway into the competition: Manchester United, Manchester City, Barcelona, PSG and Besiktas.

City are the only club not to have played in the Champions League before this decade.

Champions league come to Besiktas

Do Arsenal next

Yeah, only Man United isn't owned by a middle eastern.

Lionel Messi has been Man of the Match in 10 of Barcelona's last 11 matches

This is why we have a MOTMOTM - Man of the match other than Messi option in the Barça sub.

The one off match was the match against Girona, where he was man-marked by Pablo Maffeo for more or less the entire match.

The Harry Kane of Barcelona

That’s actually hilarious

Thank you my friend, bye bye.

Ah well, youse aren't bad cunts and I hope you beat PSG. We played a bit shite and missing players but we were never getting anything from this match anyway. Far far better second half so hopefully they'll take a slight lesson from it.

Travelling support were fucking outstanding, could hear them almost the entire game.

Let's hopefully beat Anderlecht and see what happens in the Europa.

At least Anderlecht got gubbed as well ¯\(ツ)/¯

Can't get abused on social media by Colombian fans if you don't have any social media. Well played, Jupp.

But seriously, this is going to be a miserable season for me if James is going to be a benchbum again.

Lukawwwwwku

De Gea had a little word with him as well. Which is worth as much if not more. De Gea made some stinking errors for us when he joined and is now largely considered best in the world or thereabouts. Kid will learn not to stand so far out for set pieces with time.

Svilar has a brilliant future ahead of him, really hope this doesn't affect him

It won't, De Gea used to make mistakes all the time look at him now.

Clearly the lad is talented.

After three complete UEFA Champions League rounds the five English teams have zero losses and 37/45 points in total

thanks to Arsenal

Are we gonna do this after every match day?

All 5 teams will reach semi-finals.

Have to remind us that English clubs aren't as shit as they used to be.

Seeing Azpilicueta having a bad game feels like when I realized that my parents weren't all-knowing demigods. I don't like it.

CL game of the season so far. What a match!

This has been his second or third bad game in a row though.

Probably down to fatigue.

Roma were absolutely fantastic in that second half until Hazard scored. Chelsea seemed to get a big confidence boost following the goal and got themselves right back into it, but up to that point they could barely get into the Roma box. They were still holding their own, but nowhere near the dominance that they had shown for the first 30 minutes.

Dzeko really should put the game to bed with the header, but Rudiger did well to keep enough pressure on him to throw him off.

Gotta give a shout to the Roma fans too. In full voice all night. Almost seemed like they were the home crowd in the second half.

Also have to give Gary Cahill credit for his Olenna Tyrell cosplay. He looked magnificent.

Winning in the group stage by scoring the shittiest goal in existence, feels exaclty like Fergie era. Our defense is actually so good this season, just goes to show that the manager matters for it, no matter what combination of center backs we have had, we still keep adding clean sheets. Oh and please Mou for the love of god givi Miki some rest, its like we are playing 10 vs 12 atm since every ball he touches goes to the opponent

Second shit performance in a row but I'm encouraged that we can get results during periods of poor form. Something I've seen from all of our winning sides over the last two decades.

12 games, 9 clean sheets!

Really?! I thought it was more of a weird game. Strange win though.
