Chelsea fans have been revelling in Liverpool’s disappointment this evening.
Another crazy day of Premier League football has ended with perhaps the most surprising result yet with Aston Villa – armed with Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley, who scored in the match – beating reigning champions Liverpool 7-2.
The result means Aston Villa keep their 100% record, only Everton managing the same feat from all 20 Premier League teams.
Liverpool were, and still are, favourites to lift the Premier League title again this season, so any slip-up is being celebrated by fans of any other club with hope of becoming champions this season.
Chelsea are in that category having spent more than £200million during this transfer window and unsurprisingly, Blues fans have been taking plenty of joy in Liverpool’s defeat to Villa this evening.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
As eluded to in the tweets, Chelsea midfielder Barkley made his Villa debut in the clash against Liverpool.
The England international shone in his first Villa outing, scoring his new team’s fifth of the game.
The result means Liverpool are now in fifth, just two points ahead of Chelsea in seventh.
