For weeks upon weeks, fans across the Premier League find themselves asking one question in unison; where is Alexandre Pato?
The Brazilian forward joined the Blues in January for the rest of the season, though is yet to muster even a single appearance for the West London giants.
His prolonged absence has not only confused the Chelsea faithful, but had most fans in this country chomping at the bit to see him perform on these shores.
Why again did Chelsea sign Alexandre Pato on loan? He's yet to make an appearance and they're already discussing end the loan early

Though his stock has plummeted since his days at AC Milan, the now 26-year old Selecao international was one of the most heralded youngsters in football during his days at the San Siro.
Kim Källström, Arsenal’s January signing in 2014, didn’t play until March 25. If Alexandre Pato doesn’t play today, he'll break that record.

The refusal to play him from interim boss Guus Hiddink, for whatever reason, has turned from a simple selection issue within camp, to wide eyed wondering from all sorts of fans on social media.
And the odd jibe, of course. Never forget the odd jibe.
