Chelsea fans take to social media to outline key difference between this season and last season during Zenit tie

Chelsea take on Zenit

Chelsea began the defence of their Champions League triumph with a tricky tie against Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg. It turned into something of a dull affair, but Thomas Tuchel’s side ultimately ran out 1-0 winners despite an incredibly underwhelming performance at Stamford Bridge.
