Chelsea’s season is at such a busy second that it’s simple to lose deal with the large image.
Press convention by press convention and recreation by recreation the Blues are rattling by a fairly frantic last quarter of the marketing campaign, however regardless of the insanity now, earlier than we all know it we might be spat out the opposite facet, into an extended summer season with out membership motion.
Fortunately there are final summer season’s European Championships nonetheless to play, and there are going to be tons of Blues out competing with their nationwide groups.
We’re going to be confused about accidents in fact, however you possibly can’t let that break your enjoyment of a giant match like this one. In the event you’ve obtained any robust emotions about Kai Havertz’ Germany or N’Golo Kante’s France you would possibly even open an account to guess on the Euro 2020 video games we’ve obtained in prospect later this yr.
It will likely be fascinating to see the place worldwide Blues followers, from nations not enjoying within the match, put their allegiance.

Kante has Olivier Giroud with him for Les Bleus, whereas our German contingent is exceptionally massive for the time being. Though in the event you’ve spent an entire season getting pissed off by Havertz and Timo Werner in Chelsea shirts, you is likely to be wanting ahead to a break.
Our Spanish contingent has shrunk lately, and neither Marcos Alonso not Cesar Azpilicueta look too prone to be known as up at this stage.

Until there’s a lifeless rubber for Thomas Tuchel’s group within the last recreation or two of the league, we will’t see that taking place. It’s a brutal disgrace for Billy, who would possibly by no means once more see his nation qualify for a significant match like this.
Whichever Blues are on the market enjoying, let’s simply hope they’re doing it with a freshly minted Champions League winners medal of their again pockets…
