Some Nigeria Chelsea fans based in Lagos has given up ahead of Chelsea’s final match encounter with Mancheste City which comes up on Sunday.
Unlike most Chelsea fans, a good number of them believes that Chelsea cannot get a win when they play the defending champion in that clash.
One Chelsea fan when confronted with the question: “Do you think Chelsea can beat City in the Carabao Cup final” responded by saying: “Haaaa No hope bro, we can’t win the title.
Another took a swipe from a different angle saying: “Our prayers right now is just to ensure that the scoreline does not exceed the previous 6-0 which we conceded in our last meeting with them”
One Chelsea fan who spoke with us saw on the issue gave a different approach to the matter: “Our manager (Sarri) was ill-mannered in our last meeting with Man City, and refused to shake hands with City manager Pep Guardiola following the 6-0 defeat, this alone will count against us and it will make City become more harsh when we meet in the final”.
Another group of Chelsea fans who wished not to talk on the matter, believes that there was no need talking about it as it is an obvious fact that Chelsea will lose when they meet City.
However, reminiscent is the fact that most Chelsea fans in the world never gave Chelsea a chance in 2012 when they scaled through an established Barca team in the semifinal of the Champions League to beat Bayern Munich in the final and lift their first ever European title.
Though it appeared unbelievable then, but it happened. And the Barca side was a team managed then by Pep Guardiola who is also currently the manager of Manchester City.
The Carabao Cup final seems to be the closest and maybe the most realistic means of Chelsea getting a trophy this season, but the club will have to decide by lifting their spirit and deciding to take the bull by the horn.
