The Blues made the most of the clip and took to social media to savagely troll their London rivals. Chelsea captioned the post, “Searching for another Champions League winner in London like…”, highlighting the fact that they still are the only club in London to have won the Europen Cup. In a follow-up tweet, Chelsea went on to thank Didier Drogba for his winning penalty in 2012.

The only two other London clubs that have come close to winning the UCL are Arsenal and Tottenham. The two clubs reached the final but both ended up on the losing side in 2006 and 2019, respectively.
