‘What happened to him?’ - Chelsea fans continue to express concern over star player vs Southampton

The Pensioners’ difficult start to the campaign has continued at St. Mary’s


Supporters of Premier League giants Chelsea have taken to social media in their droves on Tuesday, to express fresh concern over a key member of the club’s first-team setup.

Thomas Tuchel’s men, of course, are currently locked in action.

On the back of an altogether hit-and-miss opening to the new campaign, the Blues have made the trip to England’s south coast, eyeing a 2nd win on the bounce in a meeting with Southampton.

In turn, when a concerted spell of pressure ultimately culminated in Chelsea opening the evening’s scoring through Raheem Sterling midway through the first-half, the visitors looked on their way to precisely that.

It didn’t take at all long, however, for the capital club’s three-point hopes to be dented.

This came as youngster Romeo Lavia bent a fine effort home from just outside the area, to pull Southampton level with his first senior goal with 28 minutes on the clock.

Whilst those of a Southampton persuasion, in turn, swiftly erupted into chaotic celebration, on the other side of things, the Chelsea faithful made their frustrations clear.

One man in particular, in the form of Edouard Mendy, was singled out for widespread criticism, amid suggestions that the shot-stopper should have done better in attempting to keep Lavia’s effort out.

Amid what has proven a difficult start to the campaign for the Senegalese, Blues fans have therefore not been at all shy in flocking to Twitter, to take aim at their side’s no.1:
