Here’s why Amitabh Bachchan is super excited about Chelsea’s win against Champions Manchester City in EPL


Chelsea on Saturday beat Manchester City 2-0 while playing home in the English Premier League match at Stamford Bridge. This was also the first defeat for the current Premier League champions this season. Chelsea achieved the feat through the brilliant goals of N’Golo Kante and David Luiz. The victory left millions of Blue fans around the world excited. Also, ecstatic about Saturday’s win was Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Bachchan took to Twitter to express his excitement. He wrote, “YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH … Chelsea beats the Champion Man City 2-0 .. what an incredible play by Chelsea .. it was clockwork ..”

Big B, as Bachchan senior is known in the Hindi film industry, may not be a hardcore Chelsea fan, but his son Abhishek has never hidden his passion for Team Blue from West London. Last year, when Chelsea were crowned as new champions of the EPL, the Manmarziyaan  actor had expressed his excitement by posting his photo wearing official T-shirt of Chelsea.

Abhishek has also visited Stamford Bridge, home ground for Chelsea in west London on many occasions in the past.

Saturday’s game was crucial for Chelsea after their disappointing performance in a mid-week clash against Wolverhampton 1-2. With this win, Chelsea have secured 34 points in 16 outings and are placed fourth in the league table. Manchester City are placed second with 41 points with the same number of matches. Liverpool are the current league leaders with 42 points.

Altogether, teams are expected to play 38 matches in the entire season and the team with the most points are declared champions.
