Chelsea got off to a woeful start on the opening weekend of the Premier League as they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat against Manchester United.
The Blues were particularly poor defensively but they did also field a number of younger players.
In midfield, Mason Mount started whilst Tammy Abraham led the line. The latter hit the post with a powerful effort in the first half whilst the former only showed brief glimpses of the quality he offered to Derby last term.
His display left Chelsea fans somewhat unsure on him, as they offered differing opinions on the 20-year-old.
One fan said he could have scored if he wasn’t a clown whilst one claimed they couldn’t care less if he ran around like a headless chicken because Ross Barkley is better.
Another supporter shared his uncertainty by claiming he shouldn’t be a starter yet.
Here’s what Chelsea fans have been saying about him.
Chief. There were moments he was abysmal and clueless. But overall he was superb. The cutback to Tammy was unnecessary. Should have been a goal. You’re prolly the blind one here.

He’s been chasing the game and had little impact. He’s had little composure when I’m the ball as well
I’m glad he’s fit. I don’t think this is the game to give him a chance over the other players

Yes I did, there was a short spell after the penalty where he was a bit like a rabbit caught in the headlights but then the whole team went to pieces a bit at that point. After that whenever Chelsea were pressing there he was in the thick of it.

He’s been a pale shadow of himself

He’s good but he should come from the bench, he’s not ready to be a starter right now I think. We should haved scored at least one ???

Honestly don’t care if he runs around like a headless chicken. Barkley so much better technically.

Mediocrity. But ok, that’s Chelsea level now.
