It’s a Sunday without league football, which is always a bleak prospect.
Just when you want to settle in with a hangover and a cup of tea to watch some Super Sunday you realise it’s the international break, and your only options are Portugal-Lithuania; or even worse – the rugby World Cup.
The break is always even more frustrating when your team is in good form, and that’s exactly what has happened to Chelsea. After finally building up a head of steam following on from the last international fortnight, they’ve been forced into a break and there’s no telling how they will come out of it.
Mason Mount, for example; was poor for England after a great start for Chelsea. Will he bounce back at 100% for his club?
On he other hand, it does give us a free fortnight to get players back to fitness. Ruben Loftus-Cheek for example, will be that much closer to a return.
So don’t just curse the break – it giveth as well as taketh away.
