Prediction: I think Chelsea will make the top 4 and Werner will gradually turn his form around and have a decent end to the season. Little signs in that Burnley game despite one clumsy shot.

We may actually play you at the right time then although from memory the same thing happened last season and we still ended up losing....

At least you have an incredibly deep squad to mange with rotation etc.

idk about Gladbach, but Atletico (who are due to face Chelsea) is in the same situation as arrivals from the UK are also apparently banned in Spain

‘Gladbach game happens after the meeting of ministers to determine the best stage of lockdowns - so they will probably need a backup - but at the moment cases are trending down. Leipzig game is before the meeting, therefore can’t be accommodated

They have no fit back up striker, and their central midfield stocks with kdb out are pretty thin. They have decent depth in wingers but that's about it.
They've got two very good goalies. Five quality centre halves. The other day against Burnley they had a bench including Foden, Fernandinho, Zinchenko (plays midfield for Ukraine) and Claudio Gomes (a young N'Golo Kante type). I think they'll be ok.

I see that VAR is useless in Germany too. This wasn’t given as a penalty even after VAR checked it.

It’s a blurry image but even on the replay, it struck the defenders arm. I thought perhaps it missed the defenders arm but it didn’t.
