CHELSEA were trolled by their own fans for a Twitter post saying they were “unbeaten so far” in the Europa League.
Of course, technically, the content of the tweet was perfectly correct.
December’s 2-2 draw against MOL Vidi was the first time the Blues had even dropped points in six games in Europe’s second-tier tournament.
But, as one supporter pointed out, the results were so good because they had been “playing farmers”.
Not quite accurate, but funny nonetheless, given victories came over the likes of PAOK, Bate Borisov and MOL Vidi.
The timing of the post was also questionable.
Sarri admits he is in a fight to save his job after his side were humiliated 6-0 by Man City at the Etihad last Sunday.
The Blues face Malmo in Sweden tonight looking to bounce back.
But if social media is anything to go by, most fans were more preoccupied with poking fun at their club.
In reply to the “unbeaten” tweet, one said: “Can you stop this unbeaten nonsense now. Thank you.”

Another posted: “You know, I don’t like people losing jobs, so social media manager, you really need to rethink what content you are tweeting.”
One comment read: “Oh boy this ‘gloating’ doesn’t feel right, after that thrashing vs City…”
A fellow user wrote: “Should you really be saying that? What are you trying to do curse us further?”
While one fumed: “You are here in the Europa league playing against farmers and kids and you are shouting unbeaten you should be ashamed of yourself.”
