Having suffered main loss in difficult battle, Chelsea take on dangerous responsibility (4,3,3)

The rest are done (although I can't parse 27 which I think must be BREEZE - Comic's ending in second place — that's easy (6) - I'd be interested to understand that one too).

Question Author
Thanks very much both. Not familiar with the phrase.
Neither was I and I thought the answer for a long time was "call the bet" for the dangerous activity which is also an anagram of "battle + chel". It messed me up for ages!
I'm another that has never heard that phrase! Does it refer to a whip or a pussycat?
It refers to an old fable, where mice put a bell on a cat to alert them.
Wow thanks for that! You learn something new everyday!
