Life at Chelsea is never that straightforward.
The team can go from Premier League champions to relegation-threatened laughing stock in the space of a few months. Their manager can go from world’s best to dole queue within the same year. And clearly, the fans of the club are very, very confused by the whole thing.
How else do we explain the very bizarre scenes during Chelsea’s match against Sunderland, their first game since Jose Mourinho’s departure?
The home side going 2-0 up inside the first 15 minutes would normally ensure a positive vibe around the stadium – but at Stamford Bridge, it appears to have merely aggravated the Chelsea fans.
Intent on protesting the decision to sack Mourinho, the team’s brilliant start to the match just made the home supporters demand to now why they hadn’t been playing like that all season.
And guess what? Chelsea fans being angry with their team for playing well has had a sizeable slice of the online fooball world chuckling to itself…
Some think the choice of chant at 2-0 up was worth pointing out
