'Woke up to this news', 'I feel sick' - Chelsea fans react to 'incredible' relegation bombshell
Chelsea fans have reacted to reports that they could face automatic relegation from the Premier League in the wake of Everton’s points deduction.
The Toffees’ recent resurgence has been spoiled by the news of a 10-point deduction for breaching financial rules, but the Blues and Man City have looming charges that could see them handed an even more damning punishment.
The Times reported that both clubs could see a 30-point deduction or even automatic relegation if their charges are proved by an independent commission, which would undoubtedly send shockwaves through English football.
Chelsea’s charges looked nailed on as their new owners themselves revealed information from the club’s previous ownership regarding significant payments that would have broken Premier League regulations.
Their fans have taken to social media in reaction to the potentially catastrophic news, but some are more confident than others that they may just get away with it.
Some fans were confused that Chelsea could face the same punishment as City considering the significant gulf in their respective accusations.
This fan is furious with the report and claimed if his club get relegated, City should be out-right banned.
This fan was more optimistic and is counting on the Premier League’s need for revenue from these huge clubs to avoid a sanction.
This supporter feels Chelsea’s punishment is nailed on.
This fan just needs a break form all the bad news that Chelsea keep getting.
Another slammed the potential relegation as a “desperate” ploy and urged the club to “sue these people”.
This fan feels the European Super League could rear its ugly head once again if such sanctions were imposed.
