Arsenal & Chelsea make it a great night for English teams in the Uefa coefficient rankings [Table]

The Premier League is often bashed for not being good enough.

The fact that Leicester are top of the division, Crystal Palace are sixth, are often used as weapons to claim the English top flight really isn’t up to scratch.

Before this week’s Champions League games, many people were gloomy. After Man United went out to Wolfsburg, that gloom only deepened.

But then on Wednesday night something changed.

Arsenal, needing to win 2-0 at Olympiakos, produced their result of the season winning 3-0 away in Athens. Olivier Giroud hit a hat-trick, and Joel Campbell was superb.

As for Chelsea, needing a draw against Porto, Jose Mourinho’s men also produced the goods. Looking calm and like they were enjoying themselves, Chelsea ran out comfortable 2-0 winners to reach the last 16.

Overall England now has three teams in the final stages of the Champions League.
