Chelsea fans are in uproar on social media after they were handed a tricky Champions League draw, whilst seeing London rivals Arsenal end up happy.
The Blues won their group comfortable but were given a difficult draw against French champions Paris Saint-Germain, whilst Arsenal, who finished runners-up in their group, were drawn against a weak Monaco side. Some Chelsea fans complained that this was unfair, as the Gunners were not the winners of the group.
Whilst they complain, it’s worth pointing them to the phrase ‘luck of the draw’. Besides, Arsenal deserve some luck after seeing themselves paired with the likes of AC Milan and Bayern Munich at this stage in recent years.
PSG is the draw Mourinho wanted. Short trip and they are not playing well at all at the moment. If nothing changes, Chelsea will batter them

Arsenal came second in their group, and they draw Monaco. Dortmund won the group, and they get Juventus. Something’s wrong
