It really is a Blue Monday for Chelsea fans after a number of their stars impressed on international duty.
But rather than feeling down in the dumps, the Shed End should be counting down the seconds until their heroes return to club action and look to seal a top four finish as well as Champions League glory.
Mason Mount, 22, capped his latest great performance with a goal to help England to victory over Albania in World Cup 2022 qualification.
And USA boss Gregg Berhalter was full of praise for Christian Pulisic after his ‘unbelievable’ man of the match display in their win at Northern Ireland.
The attacker, also 22, scored the second in the 2-1 victory, with his manager saying afterwards: “What I say about Christian is to forget about all the great stuff he does on the ball.
“He just competed today, and, when he’s in that type of mode, he’s just an unbelievable player.”
And 21-year-old Kai Havertz also helped Germany to victory over Romania and produced the assist for Serge Gnabry.
