Chelsea fans bemoan losses

When Jose Mourinho made the decision to let Kevin De Bruyne leave Chelsea in 2013, and then Romelu Lukaku in 2014, he was always sailing close to the wind.

Many Blues fans expressed concerns over the respective calls, and it would appear that fate has returned to bite Mourinho in the backside.

De Bruyne, now playing for Man City, has had a hand in a total of 17 goals this year across all competitions, scoring nine and assisting eight.

Lukaku meanwhile has scored 13 and set up four, bringing him to the same tally. Chelsea fans aren’t that impressed, as you can see from the tweets.
