Chelsea player booed off pitch as nightmare season continues

Chelsea player booed off pitch as nightmare season continues

Chelsea fans weren't happy.

One of Chelsea's struggling stars was booed off the pitch during another dreadful afternoon for the London club.

The pressure on Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino continued to mount as his side slumped to a 4-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The London club have now lost 10 of their 23 Premier League matches this season, leaving them 11th place in the table and 15 points off the top four.

Cole Palmer put the hosts ahead early in the first half, but Matheus Cunha soon drew Wolves level before an Axel Disasi own goal just before the break turned the game on its head.

Cunha added two more in the second half to complete his hat-trick and pile more misery on Chelsea, even if Thiago Silva did head home a late consolation goal.

Pochettino is under mounting pressure, but its his star players that Chelsea supporters are fast losing patience with.

One of the main targets for their frustration is Raheem Sterling, who has failed to convince in a Chelsea shirt since joining the club from Manchester City in a £45 million move 18 months ago.

When the England international was substituted on Sunday with 20 minutes left to play, Chelsea fans made it clear that they expect much more from one of the club's highest earners.

Sterling was booed by large sections of the home crowd when Pochettino hauled him off. Earlier in the second half he missed a clear chance to draw his side level, but dragged his low strike wide of the target.

On social media, fans were quick to comment on the hostile reaction he received from his own supporters.

One fan tweeted on X: "For club's most paid player he deserves that," while another said: "He has been terrible. We should definitely boo him."

Another simply described the four-time Premier League winner as "insignificant" while another said: "He needs to leave my club."
