Exactly, there is a lot of chauvinism around, e.g. one of the best 3 in the world in his position, best in the world, world class, top 5 in the world, mostly based on stats pulled out so we can feel better about ourselves; but at the end of the day in the last 4 year (a cycle) all we can show (except for Tolisso) is winning a one horse race league year after year.
In "those rankings" Rafinha is probably not in the top 1,000 players in the world, or in the top 50 in his position; but managed to be motm in a Champions League game for us after being out for a long time. As you said, that alone tells you a story that some refuse to see.

I don't think I know anyone at all (including myself) who expected us to beat Inter...

Chelsea on the other hand...

Also bookmakers were heavily favouring Inter.

We were without Ribery....

Inter were on a high level of confidence having just eliminated Barca...

Our left wing comprised of Altintop and Badstuber (in his first pro season, and playing as a LB).
Against Eto'o and Maicon.
