Chelsea fans blast Drinkwater on social media

Things are not going fantastically well for Chelsea at the moment.

Indeed, the Blues have lost four of their last five Premier League matches to drop into fifth position in the table, and they are now five points off the top four.

The pressure is building on head coach Antonio Conte amid a poor run of form, and the same can be said for a number of the Chelsea players.

One of those that has had a bit of a rocket on social media is Danny Drinkwater, with the midfielder, who is valued at £18m by transfermarkt.co.uk, struggling to find his best form since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

It was somewhat of a surprise when Chelsea spent more than £30m to sign the former Manchester United midfielder from Leicester City last summer, and he has not made too much of an impression for the reigning English champions.

It was Drinkwater’s 28th birthday on Monday, but a number of Chelsea fans were not in the mood to offer their best wishes.
