Chelsea were the underdogs and hugely unexpected winners of the Champions League back in 2012, and they were once again this year.
For some reason, we play better as the underdogs with less pressure on our shoulders, and we did it again on Saturday night to become European Champions.

You had that sense all through the competition that teams were not really fearing Chelsea and did not take them seriously until the latter stages of the rounds, and Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez has pretty much confirmed this.
Chelsea of course, were the team that knocked Atletico out of the competition, and perhaps this was when it really made him and a number of others sit back and start to fear Chelsea a little more.
The rest is history, and Chelsea will now spend the new season as Champions of Europe. But Suarez is actually taking inspiration from our campaign, as reported by Tribal Football.
“The ambition does not have to stop and why not dream of having that possibility of entering the club’s history and winning a European Cup.
“It would be something incredible, something unique. The teams and the possibilities are not marked by anyone before each season, whether one or the other is a favourite.
“Look at Chelsea, whom everyone wanted to face because they saw them as weak and they ended up winning the Champions League.”
