Chelsea manage to piss off entire Blues fan-base with one single tweet!
England played out something of a dull goalless draw against Germany on Friday night but though the game didn’t exactly enthrall the watching public it did give Gareth Southgate a chance to blood some youngsters.
One such talent who shone was loaned out Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, his performance earning him a man of the match award.
Talking of England friendlies, why not jump all over this amazing 25/1 Offer!
The West London side took to Twitter to mark this fact but understandably led to a salty response from a large portion of their fan-base.

Stop loan ffs. He's better than Bakayoko and Drinkwater.— 4-3-3 (@ichelsea_blues) November 11, 2017
If we sell him next season I’m done with this club— Jeromë Tyson (@J6CF365) November 11, 2017
It’s fair to say that Chelsea have something of a reputation for now allowing young talent to blossom among their ranks, opting instead to loan out dozens of players every season, and as such it’s a bit rich for the Premier League giants to then sing a player’s praises when they represent their respective countries.
Loftus-Cheek has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise torrid season for Crystal Palace and the 20-year-old certainly has a bright future though one wonders where that future might lie.
