Football fans and pundits praised Chelsea for their performance against Atletico Madrid at their newly built Wanda Metropolitano stadium as Chelsea defeated Atletico 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

And Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes their display is the best from an English side in Europe for five years.

“By far the most impressive performance of the week was Chelsea’s 2-1 win away to Atletico Madrid,” Henry told the Sun.

“It was the best performance by an English club in Europe for four or five years.

“They controlled the game from start to finish and should have been ahead way before Michy Batshuayi’s last-minute winner.

“Chelsea’s performance will send a message out across Europe.

“All this away from home and against Atletico who, as we all know from their recent Champions League form under Diego Simeone, are so hard to break down.

“Even Real Madrid and Barcelona have struggled against them in La Liga and Europe.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
