Welcome everybody to this edition of the football trivia. Just a reminder on how this game works, I ask football questions and you give me the answers. The nos 1-5 questions are specifically tailored for Chelsea fans, nos 6-10 are for Arsenal fans, nos 11-15 are for Manchester United fans and nos 16-20 are for Liverpool fans.

If you answer all questions correctly, you are a football freak.
If you answer your club questions correctly, you are a true fan.
If you fail to answer any question correctly, then, you are one of those people who argue blindly about football in public.

I guess that’s pretty clear to everyone. Ok! Leggo!
