Napoli 3-1 Chelsea: Lavezzi runs rampant

Monday February 20th, 2012

After Arsenal's humiliation at the hands of AC Milan in last week's first leg, it looks like Chelsea represents the Premier League's last hope in the Champions League. Oh dear. How unfortunate is this? Let me count the ways: Chelsea hasn't won a game in a month and was lucky to squeak a replay against Birmingham City in the FA Cup at the weekend; the manager Andre Villas-Boas had been at odds with his own players, with Didier Drogba making a big show of providing a pep talk in front of the television cameras on his return from international duty; Fernando Torres. Napoli, meanwhile, has won its last two matches in Serie A - and held Milan to a goalless draw before that. Join me from 2.30 p.m. ET on Tuesday to find out what happens in another England v Italy clash.
