Cheap hotels in London ideal for catching Chelsea in the Champions League
The Champions League is moving into the second half of the opening group stage, and Chelsea are already emerging as one of the big guns in the competition.

On November 23rd, they will welcome Zilina to Stamford Bridge, where those who are looking for cheap hostels in London could see them seal their place in the knockout stage.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have a 100 per cent success rate so far in Group F, with victories over Spartak, Zilina and Marseille already under their belts.

In the opening round of matches, the London club travelled to Slovakia to take on Zilina, coming away with a 4-1 win and three points to get their European campaign up and running.

Goals from Michael Essien, Daniel Sturridge and two from Nicolas Anelka were enough for the Blues, with Tomas Ovarec pulling one back in the second-half for the hosts.

In week two, those who booked into cheap hostels in London were able to see Chelsea defeat Marseille 2-0, despite missing Didier Drogba, who would have been wanting to face his old club.

John Terry got Stamford Bridge rocking after just seven minutes, with Anelka getting his third of the competition from the penalty spot.

Last night (October 19th), Chelsea strengthened their position at the top of the group with an excellent win away to Spartak Moscow.

Yuri Zhirkov set them on their way with a stunning volley from 25 yards, followed by the in-form Anelka who completed the scoring just before half-time.

Chelsea will now have to play all of the side again, with Spartak coming to England in two weeks' time, followed by the visit of Zilina on November 23rd and then an Anglo-French battle in Marseille in early December.

Those seeking cheap hostels in London might also want to see Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur in Champions League action.
