On their official Twitter account, the Premier League revealed a damning statistic about Enzo Fernandez and Chelsea’s away form, leaving the team’s supporters feeling embarrassed.
The club recently parted ways with former boss Graham Potter, only seven months after he left Brighton and Hove Albion to take on the role at Stamford Bridge.
Despite this change, the team’s recent 2-0 loss to Aston Villa has left them languishing in the bottom half of the table.
As a result, owner Todd Boehly decided to cut his losses with Potter and bring back club legend Frank Lampard to manage the team for the remainder of the season.
The struggles of the team throughout the 2022/23 campaign have been evident, and this has now been further emphasized by the Premier League on their official Twitter account.
In a tweet that can be seen below, the league has called attention to the club’s poor form away from home, embarrassing them further.

At just 22 years old, Fernandez joined the club during the January transfer window, having caught the attention of the footballing world with a series of impressive performances during Argentina’s World Cup-winning campaign in December.
Despite being at the club for only a few weeks, the midfielder has already contributed more goals away from home than any other player in the team, highlighting the challenges the team has faced during the transitionary period under Potter.
Here is what some fans have had to say on the statistic…
@FaithYayilo: This is sad.
@cfcJRBN: Delete this.
@sholobrand: We are a JOKE.
@Thekovaera18: This is a joke.
@_eskaycf: Disgusting club.
@billahibarkely: Can we just give him POTY? No one else deserves it.
@CFCChubz: Enzo player of the year, who says no?
