Chelsea fans have many things to be angry about after their defeat to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge and a fast food company joining in making fun of them.

Mauricio Pochettino's men went into the game, having picked up five points from the opening five games, knowing all maximum points were needed to help them climb up the table.

The Blues dominated early proceedings but failed to take their chances and have goalkeeper Robert Sanchez to thank after two brilliant saves helped them stay in the game.

Malo Gusto leaving the pitch after he was shown a straight red card worsened the after, and Ollie Watkins pounced minutes later after Thiago Silva lost the ball carelessly in midfield.

As noted by The Athletic, the Blues have failed to score in 13 games this year, including their last three games, a very worrisome stat for fans but a sweet savour for rivals.

Fast food company Domino's Pizza joined in the trolling after revealing the number of pizzas they have delivered since the Blues last found the back of the net.

"We’ve delivered about 852,609 pizzas since Chelsea last scored a goal," the account tweeted.

The Blues were not the only recipient of trolling on social media yesterday. Sheffield United defenders got a dose of their own from Specsavers after their 8-0 loss to Newcastle United at Bramall Lane.

"Free eye tests for Sheffield United defenders tomorrow," it wrote.

The Magpies had eight different goalscorers for their goals, a Premier League record excluding own goals, according to Opta Joe.
