Paris Saint-Germain roll out a series of bizarre tweets ahead of Chelsea clash

Each tweet features a picture of a different PSG player, and is accompanied by a sentence detailing the specific qualities that make up a 'legend'... it's all a little bit too pretentious.

(What does that even mean?)

Then, comes a furious David Luiz...

Clearly, they've been waiting for this one for a while over in the French capital.

It's almost as if PSG are winning their domestic league at a canter and are desperately craving some form of big game...
