Chelsea played their first game today without Jose’s reign. The Blues faced Sunderland at Stamford Bridge today and won 3-1. This was their very first fixture after Mourinho was sacked by the club. Jose’s sacking was a foolish decision by the management and the fans’ anger over the same was seen today. The supporters showed their love and support for ‘The Special One’ in the stands and booed players in today’s clash. Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa were booed by the Stamford Bridge crowd. Newly appointed gaffer Guus sat next to owner Roman Abrahamovich and former striker Didier Drogba for Saturday’s 3-1 win over Sunderland but the Dutchman wasn’t the centre of attraction in the game. The fans sang the chants of Jose Mourinho and expressed their emotions over his exit. Jose was an integral part of the London club and his exit has deeply affected the fans. The fans chanted for Mourinho throughout the first half of the contest, as well as displaying banners in support of their former manager. Among the players being booed were Diego Costa and Francesc Fabregas as the supporters believed the duo never performed well in the Jose era and didn’t support the gaffer during his reign at the club. 

Reporter Andy Burton was at the game and confirmed in the Sky Football live match blog that the booing of Costa and Fabregas had made for a “strange atmosphere”. “The atmosphere is very strange in here,” Burton wrote.” Fabregas and Costa booed again when their names were announced on the PA for a second time.” As for Willian, he is one of the very few players who was applauded by the supporters. Eden Hazard was also seen as a victim of a portion of the fanbase who criticized him by booing. One banner held aloft by a fan read: “The 3 rats – Hazard, Cesc and Costa.”

Another banner unfurled by a supporter appeared to accuse the players of greed, reading “30 pieces of silver. Judas the players v Jose ‘One of Us The Legend’. Always in our hearts.”

Below are some of the images from today’s fixture of Chelsea vs Sunderland.
