9/10, got number 6 wrong but don't know which one that was

In fairness you could probably have named most of those before you even started.

It'd be just like Arsenal to win this now and give themselves a chance.

Yeah and then distract themselves and drop points all round the other games before crashing out in the first knockout stage.

I think keeping the momentum going is what's most important. A valiant draw would be nice.

Looked like they might steamroller us at the start but it's turning into a great game.

Douglas Costa is seriously impressive.

Petr Cech is incredible. Chelsea were crazy to let him go.

Yeah Neuer made a great save from Theo's header but he was also completely responsible for the Giroud goal.

Cech didn't do anything spectacular but he's as solid a keeper as we've had in years and it makes a world of difference back there. The whole defence was great.

Neuer's save was brilliant but Theo should have put it away. He had another great game last night but he's such an unnatural finisher. The amount of times he tries to shape it around the keeper and ends up dribbling a pass straight to him. He needs to bag a few soon and I think he'll be flying.

On another note - BT's pundits are, to a man, fucking terrible. Whoever decided to pick the likes of Owen and Hargreaves to co-commentate on games should be sacked. On 3 separate occasions Hargreaves said '1v1, you can forget about it' about Douglas Costa.

And you missed where Lawro claimed Giroud scored with his big nose on TV3 for that.
