Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Lineups & Game Thread

Laurence Griffiths

It's a brave new world; with just a handful of men; we'll start all over again...

Bravely we hope against all hope, there is so much at stake
Seems our freedom's up against the ropes
Does the crowd understand?
Is it East vs. West, or man against man
Can any nation stand alone?

In the burning heart, just about to burst
There's a quest for answers, an unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night, rising like a spire
In the burning heart, the unmistakable fire
In the burning heart
