Fans disgusted with what Chelsea's players did to their own mascot vs Liverpool

Fans hit out at Chelsea for their treatment of the mascot before kick-off against Liverpool.

Furious football fans online are disgusted with what Chelsea players did to their OWN mascot against Liverpool.

Chelsea suffered a crushing 4-1 defeat at Anfield on Wednesday as the hosts brushed them aside to pick up three league points.

Diogo Jota, Conor Bradley, who starred at right-back, Dominik Szoboszlai and Luis Diaz all got on the score-sheet for Liverpool as Christopher Nkunku pulled one back for the visitors.

After the match, a video of what Chelsea players did to their own mascot emerged on social media, leaving fans gobsmacked. Check it out below:

Footage shows Chelsea players abandoning their own mascot for a team huddle in a heartbreaking moment.

After the talk, the players assumed their positions ahead of kick-off without keeping an eye on the mascot who watched on before jogging off the pitch.

Ironically, this all happened as 'You'll Never Walk Alone' blared out.

People on social media, including Chelsea fans, slammed the club for their treatment of the young mascot.

Chelsea supporter Rory Jennings said: "Not one of these overpaid w**kers keeping an eye out for the kid..."

A second tweeted: "Yep feel for him, that's really poor from Chelsea."

A third wrote: "Poor lad. Absolutely hate seeing stuff like this and so disappointed in our players for not taking notice of him."

A fourth added: "Being left in the middle of a pitch surrounded by 60,000 fans must be terrifying for a kid. Not one of our players went up to him to help either."

A fifth exclaimed: "If I was the gaffer here I’d be hauling the lot of them in and giving them a talking to for this well and truly."

Another commented: "This literally sums up everything that is wrong with Chelsea Football Club at the moment."

Chelsea have lost nine league games this season following last night's result and lie in 10th place at the time of writing.

The Blues have 31 points on the board and return to action on Sunday against Wolves.
