Twitter reacts to yet another Chelsea defeat

Is this the end for Jose?

A Jose Mourinho-less Chelsea slumped to their second defeat to Stoke in as many weeks on Saturday night.

Marko Arnautovic’s acrobatic finish early in the second half was enough to see the Potters take all three points and consign Chelsea to their seventh defeat in just 12 league games this season.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was forced to watch the game from the team hotel as he served a stadium ban for his outburst at Upton Park last week.

After Arnautovic took the lead just eight minutes into the second half, people started to speculate on what Mourinho thought about seeing his side fall behind yet again.

Some felt there was a certain dramatic irony in the goal, considering what Mourinho had once said of Arnautovic during their time together at Inter.

Chelsea almost found an equaliser through Pedro’s curling shot, but were denied by the post.

With just a five minutes of normal time remaining, Loic Remy rounded Jack Butland only to lose his balance before he could put the ball in the net. Chelsea fans weren’t happy to see Remy attempt to stay on his feet and score instead of going down and potentially getting Butland sent off.

In the end, the Blues couldn’t do enough to overcome a stubborn Stoke team.
