Its been a great start for the Premier League teams after quite a poor year last year and a widely held view that the Premier League had lost ground on the big teams from Spain and Germany.
(PRWEB UK) 8 November 2013
Football.co.uk, who have been featuring extended coverage of the Champions League, focusing on the Premier League and Scottish Premiership teams, today revealed that fans believe the British teams will be back in the mix this year.
Arsenal and last years finalists Burussia Dortmund have shared the honours with both teams registering wins away which actually puts Arsenal top the group considered the most difficult that any of the home nation teams had to navigate. A draw for Manchester United also keeps United top of their group whilst Man City have already qualified for the knockout stages with two games left to decide if they top their group or progress as runners-up. Chelsea have continued their impressive form in Europe after their shock defeat to Basel with goals aplenty in a 3-0 thrashing against Schalke.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Its been a great start for the Premier League teams after quite a poor year last year and a widely held view that the Premier League had lost ground on the big teams from Spain and Germany. Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona and Real Madrid will probably be expected to feature well come the knock-out rounds but the Premier League teams have already proven they are not to be underestimated. You never know but would certainly be good to see Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Man City do well this year. There are still two games to play but I would expect them all now to progress from their groups. The fans who have been enjoying our sites football.co.uk, sport.co.uk and the Footymad network have been responding extremely positively to us going that extra mile over other sport sites to cover these amazing games of football.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG believes that Football.co.uk will be the perfect venue for the Champions League “We have a great platform for Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal fans to follow every ball of the Champions League and with the World Cup looming large in Brazil next year, this is certainly going to be a memorable season heading into a fantastic summer for football.”
