Branislav Ivanovic has scored some big goals in big games. The right-back has a knack of getting into the right place at the right time, and has also been hailed for his solid defensive performances…
However, today has not been a great day for the Serbian, who has been off the boil to say the least. Chelsea were coasting at 2-0 on the 27 minute mark, but two goals in just over a minute from the Tigers closed the gap…. And they both came from down Ivanovic’s flank.
Okay, Courtois’ cock-up wasn’t entirely Branislav’s fault, but that hasn’t stopped Blues fans from rounding on the defender, who came in for all sorts of abuse over the HT period.
Many fans have short memories, but Chelsea’s supporters seem in very unforgiving mood this afternoon!
Ivanovic and Cahill are having an absolute shocker.

Ivanovic needs to know that he is replaceable. He is no god and he doesn’t deserve this god status at this club.

Ivanovic is having a mare. He’ll still score the winner though.
