Chelsea recorded a comprehensive 4-0 win against Hull City in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge on Friday night, but Blues fans were left unimpressed with Danny Drinkwater’s performance in the middle of the park.
The former Leicester City man started alongside Cesc Fabregas in central midfield for Antonio Conte’s side against the Championship outfit, but he obviously didn’t impress the Stamford Bridge faithful with his showing.
While his passing accuracy was high, many of those were sideways to his teammates and the England international showed little creativity against the Tigers, with Fabregas making more of an impact next to him in that regard.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Drinkwater’s display via social media, and while one said “Drinkwater is not even good enough to be warming the bench at Chelsea”, another said “Drinkwater really isn’t a Chelsea player”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Sideways passing, no creativity. Danny Drinkwater #CFC

Hopefully that’s the last we see of Drinkwater and Zappacosta in a Chelsea shirt
