Alex Stepney, our goalkeeper in the 1968 European Cup winning final who Eusébio famously applauded for making an excellent close-range save against him, has brushed off our recent penalty shoot-out defeat against Chelsea, claiming we beat them when it mattered.

“I prefer winning on penalties in the Champions League final than in the Community Shield,” said Stepney. “I think we played well and the manager is getting things the way he wants them.”
