Chelsea fans angered by what Raheem Sterling's said before Champions League final

Chelsea supporters on social media were not amused by Raheem Sterling’s claims regarding the Champions League final.

In an interview for the club website ahead of Saturday’s European showdown, Sterling said that: “The only thing that can stop us are ourselves if I am honest.”

Blues fans didn’t take kindly to the City attacker disregarding the fact that Chelsea could be the main reason they lose tomorrow evening.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Sterling will hope his words don’t come back to haunt him when City take on Chelsea for the ultimate domestic prize.

Twice already this season Thomas Tuchel has foiled Pep Guardiola, with the England international involved in both defeats.

Not many can claim they’ve beaten Guardiola three times in one campaign; to do so in a Champions League final would be the ultimate victory.

Tuchel has the Spaniards number, but in this one-off match, all previous triumphs go out of the window.

Plus, City could argue they were without their strongest XI for either losses to Chelsea.

Guardiola will demand a reaction from his troop, something that Chelsea have to be extremely clued onto.

A vengeful Premier League champion is a very scary proposition.

However, if the Blues can re-enact their past conquests and get the game plan down to a tee, they have every chance of European glory.
