They Showed Nothing - Chelsea Legend Unhappy With Midfield Pair

Bayern Munich

He assisted both of Serge Gnabry's goals and netted a third as Bayern outclassed Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich's commanding second half display underlined their credentials as one of the favourites for the Champions League.

"And the team were in there the night before last (Monday) and how they, on the power of whisky and beer, overpowered Chelsea last night doesn't say much for Chelsea's drinking habits either".

"So not recruiting has definitely affected the performance and the team".

Despite facing the prospect of being without their top scorer Lewandowski - who now has 39 goals for the season - Bayern will be confident of finishing the job off next month to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-final. Full-back Alphonso Davies, however, was superb and played a massive part in the performance from the German side.


Davies has featured 26 times for Bayern so far this season, most recently as a left-back in Bayern's 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge, when he set up the German champions' third goal with a bursting run down the left and flawless pass for Robert Lewandowski.

"Davies brings his strengths to the pitch and wins a lot of defensive balls with his pace", said Bayern boss Hansi Flick.

Robert Lewandowski would also score a brace in addition to Joshua Kimmich's initial equaliser for Bayern, Harry Kane's penalty proving irrelevant as the Bundesliga giants scored seven times - the first time in Tottenham's 137-year history that they have conceded seven in a home fixture. However, against a side flying high in the Bundesliga, and on a record of 10 wins in their last 11 matches, there was no way back for Lampard's men. "We talked about the patterns of play, the passing, they just really drilled Chelsea tonight and it's a momentous task for them going to Germany". But today was a clear show that there is a lot of work to be done.

Bayern would be drawn to face Arsenal in the first knock-out stage seven years ago, looking to progress to a second successive Champions League final after their agonising defeat to Chelsea in Munich in 2012.
