Michy Batshuayi, Chelsea’s last gasp game winner and Mr. Leave it late

  He may not be the ideal forward in terms of flamboyance and skillset that fits the criteria of the fans at Stamford Bridge, but Michy Batshuayi has been winning the hearts of Chelsea fans around the world with very significant key moments. And like it or not, Batshuayi is Chelsea’s highest goal scorer in the UCL for Chelsea with two goals to his name. He may have been heavily criticized for finding the back of the net just once against a lowly Qarabag on the opening night of the 2017/18 UCL, but how about a winning goal as Chelsea came from behind in the dying minutes of the game to beat Atletico Madrid by 2 goals to 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano after going a goal behind in the first half through a Griezmann penalty?

Liverpool spoiling English fun in the 2017/18 UCL so far

  The Match Day 2 of the 2017/18 UCL round of matches has come and gone with much excitement and nerve-wracking moments. However, this piece focuses on the performance of the Premier League clubs in the competition thus far. Talking about nerve-wracking, our guess is that fans of Chelsea and Liverpool can attest to that. The only difference is that one side left it late and stole maximum points from a very difficult ground, while the other side conspired to falter yet again.

Harry Kane continues fine form in UCL as Spurs hammer Apoel Nicosia

  The Tuesday night group H fixtures of the 2017/18 UCL were the center of attraction as Englishman Harry Kane and Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo were on song to grab the maximum spotlight on the night. However, Harry Kane was the star of the UCL night as he hit a hat-trick against Apoel Nicosia in Cyprus while Cristiano Ronaldo made do with a brace against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park. Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham seem to have found the missing piece of the puzzle that will enable them to impress in the UEFA Champions League, a long while after the season in which Gareth Bale took some defenders to the cleaners with his frightening speed.

Chelsea doing just fine without Hazard? How long?

  It’s just six games into the season but a welcome development for Chelsea fans has been witnessed thus far. Formerly, Chelsea had found it difficult to put up interesting and exciting performances without the presence of Hazard on the pitch to play a major role since his arrival at the club. It’s no news that Chelsea had previously struggled to impress significantly in the absence of the Belgian wizard since he made his ‘back then’ big money move from Lille to Stamford Bridge. However, Italian Manager Antonio Conte after his brilliant spell in his first season in the Premier League with Chelsea seems to have found a way to ensure that Chelsea weathers the storm even in the absence of Eden Hazard. Chelsea have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 out of six games in the Premier League so ...
