As for Chelsea, although Ruben-Loftus Cheek scored the opening goal, their real hero must be Kepa Arrizabalaga when the Spaniard excelled in blocking two penalties, thereby helping the Blues hard. overtaking Frankfurt. Earlier, in the first leg on German soil, another Spaniard was also the only goalscorer for Chelsea.
In crucial moments that require bravery, we don’t see the appearance of the British. And do the teams really need the Englishmen to achieve these achievements?
Arsenal won with a team of 13/14 foreign players, where are the English players?
4 English teams reached the final, but sadly, in the case of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier, the role of the English players in the host team is quite precarious and lackluster.
Danny Rose, an English international, still competes every day in the left-hand corner against Ben Davies. The same thing happens to Eric Dier and Harry Winks, the duo are even showing a losing position in the race with these tall, muscular midfielders, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.
In Liverpool, Trent-Alexander Arnold and Jordan Henderson both shone brightly in the team’s 4-0 win over Barca. However, unlike Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane, these are not irreplaceable names in The Kop.
The British Football Association, but the British Football Association is all 4 years old
Arnold is good, but not a real star at Liverpool.
At Camp Nou, coach Juergen Klopp used to put Arnold on the bench to replace with Joe Gomez. As for Henderson, it is not an important factor in Liverpool’s play.
In the current Liverpool squad, the only English player who can be sure of starting if healthy is Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain. However, Chambo has been away from the pitch for more than a year, and no one is sure whether he will regain his peak form.
Anyway, the situation of the indigenous players in these two teams is still much better than the bleak scene going on at Arsenal and Chelsea.
