As the Jose Mourinho and his team switch their attention to the weekend’s match against Swansea City, we fans can continue to revel at the way we came back against Paris St Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals. It was the perfect night in every way, and one that will further cement Stamford Bridge’s reputation as one of the intimidating grounds.
Chelsea fans have been criticised for the lack of an atmosphere in some matches – especially against the bottom clubs, but it was right up there with some of the best in Europe.
The 90 minutes had everything from scrappy goals to excellent shots that were only denied by the woodwork. People talk about the comebacks of Liverpool and Deportivo la Coruna in this competition, but it is about time Chelsea’s double comeback (against Napoli and PSG) is also mentioned in the same breath.
The omens are looking good and we may just be looking at another happy summer. In the meantime, let’s take a look at some of the best pictures from yesterday’s epic night.
