Spotted this at the bottom of UEFA’s preview of tomorrow’s game. High praise indeed:
London sides have not thrived in Donetsk; Arsenal FC lost a 2000/01 UEFA Champions League group stage game 3-0 at Shakhtar, while late goals from Yevhen Seleznyov and Jadson saw the Pitmen beat Tottenham Hotspur FC 2-0 in last season’s round of 32. Brazilian midfielder Willian remembers that game very well, but was wary of making any comparison with the club’s current opponents. “Fulham are a much better and more dangerous side,” said the 21-year-old.
