Back-to-back defeats against Chelsea and Real Madrid, not to mention a 2-2 draw against Jose Mourinho's Blues last month, would not be considered a catastrophe for any other club in the world, but when you are established as the primary force in club soccer, such high-profile setbacks are hard to accept.

His goal was lovely and if not for Tugay’s strike, would be goal of the week. And there was no surprise in Reading where the Addicks slumped to another defeat to begin the Reed Reign.
Next week? Manchester United and Chelsea clash on Sunday…
