The champions are being given a hiding by Burnley at home and are currently 3-0 down after just 45 minutes of football in the 2017-18 Premier League season, and social media has gone into meltdown.
Stamford Bridge is never an easy place to grab a result, but Sean Dyche's men are making it look effortless against a 10-man Blues squad after they had Gary Cahill sent to the showers early after a cynical challenge. Sam Vokes has a brace and Stephen Ward bagged a goal to leave Chelsea with a mountain to climb in the second half.
Chelsea have literally fucked every acca I've put on 😂😂— A Wild Sam appeared (@cherry_sambuca) August 12, 2017
As well as 'acca's', Chelsea may well be on the way to duffing up a number of fantasy football teams too - queue the hoards of people who will be swapping Alvaro Morata for Vokes later on, then.
Imagine conceding THREE goals at home to Burnley with only having played 42 minutes. Welcome back, Chelsea. Amazing.— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) August 12, 2017
Nothing like a healthy dose of optimism to break-up the barrage of pessimism amongst the fans...
Oh well... could always end up a 4-3 turn around to Chelsea like last nights Premier League game 🤔— Laura Dux 🦋 (@LSDuxy) August 12, 2017
But, controllers would have well and truly been smashed by now though, surely...
Chelsea are indeed quite literally being pounded into the deck; here is a lifelike representation of their performance so far...
Just a little advice for Chelsea fans not panicking about this season.— Conteholic (@Conteholic) August 6, 2017
Prepare yourself for the worst and panic as much as you can.
Yep, football is back for good.
