A swarm of Chelsea supporters jumped on Mohamed Elneny’s social media post following yesterday’s disappointing derby defeat.

Elneny decided to tweet a ‘London is red’ post onto his Twitter, after the Gunners 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge last night.

Blues fans did not take to this kindly, happily reminding the Egyptian what position is side are in the Premier League table (eighth).

Here’s how they responded on social media:

A very simple way to wind up any rival football follower is to claim you own a piece of land they feel belongs to them.

Unfortunately for Chelsea, they gave up their capital city pride for one evening as Arsenal returned to the Emirates victorious.

Thomas Tuchel’s team looked off the pace as they tried to get passed the Gunners rear-guard.

After falling behind to a disastrous error, the Blues were chasing their tails and the tie.

It was a big result for Arsenal, who still have ambitions of qualifying for Europe.

Mikel Arteta also ensured his group did the domestic double over their noisy neighbours for the first time since 2003/04.

Chelsea now have to win their remaining two fixtures- Leicester City at home then Aston Villa away- if they are to guarantee a top four finish.

They also have the FA Cup and Champions League finals to keep them occupied.

Tuchel’s task is to keep his ship steady and not let this latest wave knock them off course.
