Chelsea trolled themselves with awkward song choice once losing to Brentford

Chelsea trolled themselves with an awkward song choice once losing 4-1 to Brentford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Blues fans were left rather surprised by the music blaring around the ground immediately after the final whistle blew with Thomas Tuchel’s side stunned by an in-form Bees side who have all but guaranteed Premier League survival.

At full time, Bob Marley’s ‘Three Little Birds’ echoed around the ground with the lyrics of: “Don’t worry about a thing, because every little thing is gonna be alright.”

Some would say that’s not exactly the song you’d want to hear after being hammered by a team for the first time since 1939.

The reigning world champions’ future has been thrown up in the air and currently operate under a special licence after sanctions were placed on owner Roman Abramovich too.

Chelsea were the side to break the deadlock thanks to Antonio Rudiger’s absolute rocket which came just minutes into the second half.

Fans shouted for Rudiger to shoot by the home fans and that he did with the ball flying past David Raya in the Brentford goal.

Shortly after, Thomas Frank’s side found themselves level through Vitaly Janelt and before you knew it, were ahead four minutes later thanks to Christian Eriksen finishing off an easy counter attack.

It was Eriksen’s first goal since coming to Brentford on a free transfer in January and his first in the Premier League in over two years.

Janelt grabbed his second of the game on the hour mark to extend Brentford’s lead, then substitute Yoane Wissa got in on the action three minutes from time to seal a memorable win.

Tuchel spoke to Sky Sports at full time and admitted he didn’t know what went wrong.

“It was strange because we were working hard for the first goal and we know how hard it is to create chances against Brentford,” he explained.

“They defend either very high and man mark or defend very deep in a block of 10 men around the box. You need to be patient, have a fluid rhythm and intelligent and clinical to take little chances to have that first goal and break that block down.

“Once we had [the opener] we stopped defending and gave three goals away in 10 minutes. It was very untypical and killed the game for us.

“I don’t know why we gave away a big chance straight after the goal and then the next one and from there we did not defend mature enough. We were not aware of the danger in these moments which is also very strange for us.

“We got punished. They made the most of these 10 minutes, which is maybe also not normal. It’s a summary of strange events. It’s on us. It’s our fault.”

Man of the Match: Vitaly Janelt

Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “Christian is a top player, an unbelievable character and he brings quality and calmness to the team. You can give it to Christian and he’ll always find a solution.

“From the beginning I thought ‘everything has been checked in his entire body’. He didn’t have an injury like an ACL. When he took that decision he wanted to play in the World Cup, he had that determination: ‘I want to come back into football’

“His foundation physically was quite good. We never knew how quick it would take to get to this level but it’s impressive how quick.

Frank on his surprise switch to a back three: “Today I was a genius – next Sunday I might be an unbelievable mad man! That’s football. When you play against the best team we need to defend well. The back three is much more difficult to break down.”
