Fulham troll Chelsea with brutal Joao Felix tweet they had to delete immediately

Fulham troll Chelsea with brutal Joao Felix tweet they had to delete immediately

Felix was sent off on his Chelsea debut.

Fulham's official Twitter page brutally trolled Joao Felix after the forward was sent off on his Chelsea debut but ended up deleting the tweet very quickly.

Marco Silva's side ran out 2-1 winners on Thursday evening thanks to goals from Willian and Carlos Vinicius. Former Chelsea winger Willian gave Fulham the lead in the first half before Kalidou Koulibaly equalised in the second half.

With the game delicately poised, Felix earned himself a red card before the hour mark for lunging in on Kenny Tete with a high foot.

The 23-year-old had only joined Chelsea on loan from Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, being handed a first start alongside Kai Havertz and Mason Mount in attack.

Felix looked like a threat before his dismissal, at the heart of everything good Chelsea were doing. It's likely why Fulham decided to poke fun at the Portugal superstar departing the pitch.

Their message read: "#AdiosJoao." It has since been removed.

On Wednesday, Chelsea were forced to delete their own '#HolaFelix' message as that's the Spanish word for 'hello' and the forward is Portuguese.

Interestingly, 'adios' is also Spanish compared to the Portuguese word 'adeus'. Was that a mistake from the Fulham admin or is it a next-level trolling job? We'll let you decide.

Carlos Vinicius' header with 17 minutes to go was enough to seal Fulham's first win over their bitter London rivals in 16 years.

Things continue to go from bad to worse for Chelsea under Graham Potter, with the club 10th in the Premier League table and 10 points off the top four.

Potter will now be without Felix, who cost around £11 million in loan fees, until February due to a three-match ban.

He admitted post-match: "There's a reaction from the side and it was a forward's tackle, there was no malice in it and I don't think he got too much of the player, but I understand why he's been sent off. It is another blow.

"The hits just keep coming at the moment. He was really good, you could see his quality in the game, so it is doubly disappointing for us.

"It is tough. I feel for the supporters, the players and for everybody connected with the club. It is a tough moment for us."

Chelsea are out of the Carabao and FA Cup and have an almighty job on their hands to stop the season from being a disaster.
