A Crucial Equaliser From Pedro

May 2 2019
For the second time inside a week, Chelsea went behind and then equalised virtually on half time. Although this ended up prolonging Chelsea's recent winless sequence, this feels like a reasonably good result. Frankfurt will have to come to west London and win, or achieve a high-scoring draw. There remains the very real possibility that all three major London football clubs will progress to the final of their respective competition. Meanwhile, stubborn old Sarri held the flying Hazard back, a policy which could have backfired, but the risk wasn't too harmful, and indeed he should be fairly fresh for the not inconsiderable challenge of Watford on Sunday afternoon.
