Chelsea were dumped out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night after rivals Arsenal defeated them 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
After a goalless first leg, things started swimmingly for Antonio Conte’s side on the night after Eden Hazard netted inside 10 minutes to give the Blues a vital lead.
However, Arsenal responded within five minutes, scoring through an unfortunate Antonio Rudiger own goal and then going ahead early in the second half thanks to Granit Xhaka.
Chelsea fans were left fuming with the performance and were particularly critical of summer signing Rudiger.
He may not have been able to do much about his own goal, but supporters were unhappy with his defensive performance overall and reckon he played a key part in the defeat.
Supporters are looking for more from the former Roma man, although some are willing to get rid of him already, believing he will not be able to turn around his Chelsea career.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
I’d like to speak to whoever thought Rudiger was a good signing cause he must have been on drugs #CFC
