Chelsea were defeated 3-0 to AFC Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.
Goals from Callum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and former Blue were enough to sentence the reigning champions of England to one of the most humiliating defeats of their illustrious history.
The club’s stagnation and shocking recruitment appear to have come to a head tonight, and it wasn’t pretty for anyone in attendance, or watching at home, who have any affiliation with Chelsea football club.
Antonio Conte will likely leave at the season’s end, that has been clear for some time, but he already looks to have thrown in the towel.
With no available archetypal striker, he opted to field Eden Hazard down the centre, with the Belgian flanked by Pedro and Ross Barkley. What a disaster that proved to be.
Callum Hudson-Odoi came on as a late substitute, bizarrely fielded as a right-wing-back, and showed more inventiveness than Pedro and Barkley combined during their respective time on the field.
There’s not a lot that can be said about this. It’s one of our most embarrassing moments as Chelsea fans. Here’s our player ratings.
Courtois 3, Azpilicueta 4, Christensen*, Cahill 1, Zappacosta 5, Kante 5, Bakayoko 1, Alonso 4, Barkley 2, Pedro 3, Hazard 7. (Subs: Rudiger 3, Fabregas 5, Hudson-Odoi 8)
*Christensen was withdrawn early on with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
