The 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night proved just how far out Chelsea are from the big boys in Europe, and Bayern Munich players were so confident of beating Chelsea that they had time to take beers and whiskeys before the game as revealed by Rock legend Jon Bon Jovi, who was staying in the same hotel as the German giants on Monday night.
