False equivalence

After the Chelsea’s win over Fulham, the English media indulges in some false equivalence to try and take the wind out of Barca’s sails.
Of course, the real test would have been Chelsea replicating Barca’s score against Real. But since that is unlikely, we have the come from behind 3-1 win over Liverpool in the CL first leg quarterfinal for a similar comparison against top rated opposition. Even then the most optimistic reading is that Chelsea is half as good as Barca.
Dropping back 9 men every time Barca attacked is a pretty good indication that Hiddink is aware that it could have easily been Ricky Hatton vs Manny Pacquaio.
