Man United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Man City all won their respective ties in the Champions League to round off an impressive win for the English sides.
Fans who proclaimed that the Premier League was one of the best in the world, gathered a shred of evidence this week. All four clubs dominated their opponents in this week’s round of fixtures.
Man United and Chelsea thrashed RB Leipzig and Krasnodar by hefty scorelines. Marcus Rashford scored a hat-trick, to continue to attract headlines for his on the pitch and off the pitch work. Whereas, Chelsea scored three in the last 15 minutes to crush Russia’s Krasnodar four-nil.
On Tuesday, Liverpool didn’t show any signs of weakness when they overcame FC Midtjylland two-nil after seeing their makeshift center-back Fabinho limp out through injury. While Pep Guardiola oversaw his side’s three-nil victory at Marseille.
After Wednesday’s results, all Premier League clubs are at the top of their respective CL groups and are in a good position to qualify for the round of 16. The Champions League matchday 2 saw Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, and Man United score 14 goals combined, without conceding a single goal, in a dominant display.
The Premier League has seen just two Champions League winners over the last decade, with Chelsea lifting the trophy in 2012 followed by Liverpool in 2019.
