A disgruntled Chelsea fan voiced his opinion towards Alan Shearer's Premier League prediction. Needless to say, the Geordie hero brilliantly replied.
The 2017/18 season officially got underway over the weekend with defending champions Chelsea getting off to a terrible start.
Antonio Conte's charges suffered a shock 3-2 home defeat to Burnley, while Jose Mourinho's Manchester United comfortably beat West Ham 4-0 which included a brace from new boy Romelu Lukaku.

As well as United's victory, cross town rivals City also picked up three points at Brighton. Many pundits believe the title is heading back to Manchester following their business over the summer.
'Match of the Day' pundit Shearer is tipping United to regain the title, claiming Mourinho's side look 'menacing'.
Though his words didn't go down well with a Chelsea fan who took to Twitter posting the following message.
"Menacing? Since you are a football account you know EPL is a marathon not a sprint . I consider your article baseless and will unfollow you."

After the threat, Shearer replied in typically hilarious fashion and in just three words.

Social media reacted brilliantly to the 'unfollow' threat.
