Liverpool great Graeme Souness has delivered a scathing attack on Chelsea – and the Blues supporters reacted furiously on Twitter.
Pundit Souness believes that manager Antonio Conte failed to make any significant signings in the summer and that has left them behind their title rivals.
Chelsea signed five players in the transfer window with N’Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso, Michy Batshuayi, David Luiz and Eduardo moving to Stamford Bridge.
Souness does not believe that Chelsea have improved their squad and that they failed to land a star player.
“Chelsea didn’t make any signings over the summer which I thought wow he’s a top player,” Souness told Sky Sports before Chelsea’s encounter with Leicester.
Kante, Alonso and Luiz all line up in Chelsea’s team that face Leicester on Saturday, with Batshuayi named on the substitute’s bench.
Chelsea fans voiced their anger on Twitter at Souness’ comments and believe that he was unfair on the club.
Here are a selection of the messages:
Souness absolutely hates chelsea, so obvious.

Kante has been one of the signings who has featured heavily this season under Conte.
The former Leicester midfielder enjoyed a fantastic season in the Premier League last year and helped the Foxes to an unlikely first title in the club’s history.
The Frenchman has drawn comparisons with former Chelsea favourite Claude Makelele and looks set to continue in the starting XI for the remainder of the season.
