Chelsea Fan Produces Viral Thread On Why They Will Win The Champions League And FA Cup Again
A Chelsea fan's thread on why they will win the Champions League and FA Cup this season has gone viral.
The Blues memorably won the double under Roberto Di Matteo in 2012 and the supporter has spotted a plethora of spooky similarities this year.

What's more, he points out that Manchester City emerged victorious ahead of United in the title race in 2012 - a year where the Euros took place.
United dropped into the Europa League and were eliminated by a Spanish side. Their next opponents in the secondary European competition this year? La Liga outfit Real Sociedad.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is once again an AC Milan player like he was in 2012 and Liverpool vs United was an FA Cup tie, while Ajax and Olympiacos have had identical European campaigns to what they had in 2012.
