Supporters of Premier League giants Chelsea have flooded to social media on Saturday evening, to make their frustrations crystal clear.

The Pensioners were of course back in action a short time ago.

Fresh off three defeats from four, Graham Potter’s troops made the trip to St. James’ Park, desperate for a bounce-back result ahead of the World Cup break.

When all was said and done, however, Chelsea, instead, were forced to face up to yet another loss.

This came as a solitary goal on the part of Joe Willock guided hosts Newcastle to the right side of an eventual 1-0 result on Tyneside.

On the back of the full-time whistle bringing proceedings to a close at St. James’, in turn, it should come as little surprise to hear of the Chelsea faithful making their anger known.

A whole host of the club’s stars have been singled out for deserved criticism, not least the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount.

It is another member of the Blues’ setup, though, who has been subjected to more widespread condemnation than any other.

The individual in question? Graham Potter.

After seeing both his initial lineup selection and ensuing substitutions called into serious question, Potter has been labelled by many a Chelsea supporter as the chief problem at the club at present:
