It would be fair to say that things are not going great for Chelsea at the moment.
Indeed, a run of just one win in their last five Premier League matches has left them in fifth position in the table – 10 points off the Champions League spots.
The future of head coach Antonio Conte has been called into question, whilst a number of senior players have been linked with moves away from the club.
Andreas Christensen has been perhaps one of Chelsea’s most consistent players this season, with the centre-back making 37 appearances in all competitions after returning to the club from a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach.
The 22-year-old has been a tough shaky in recent weeks, however, which has led to some criticism from the Chelsea supporters.
There were plenty of fans that were keen to pay tribute to the centre-back on his birthday, but there were also those that asked the Denmark international to improve.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

Happy Birthday Andreas! 🎂🎉 He's come under fire at times this season but I'm sure that he will improve and come back stronger next season. Only 21 so he has his entire career ahead of him. Plenty of time to get better. The @PremierLeague is not the easiest league in the world!
