  • Chelsea played out a drab 0-0 draw against Bournemouth on Sunday, September 17
  • The Blues remain with just one win in the league so far this season
  • Away fans made their feelings known to Ben Chilwell, who raised his hands in apology at the Vitality Stadium

Ben Chilwell took in insults from frustrated Chelsea fans on the away end as the Blues played out a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth.

In a very forgettable game, Chelsea lacked the cutting edge despite having the better chances, as Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling both hit the woodwork.

Cole Palmer also had a chance to win the game late on, but his shot was fired straight at Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto.

The home side also had half chances, with Dominic Solanke testing Robert Sanchez with an effort, then seeing another header go wide.

Ultimately, both teams settled for a point as the Cherries continued to search for their first win under new manager Andoni Iraola.

For Chelsea, it was yet another frustrating performance under Mauricio Pochettino, as the result means they lie in 14th place, a spot below Manchester United, who are experiencing their own problems, as per

Chilwell told off by fans

At full time, full-back Ben Chilwell attempted to issue an apology to fans as he was seen walking up to the away end with his hands raised, but the irate Chelsea faithful was having none of it.

In a video doing rounds online, the fans can be heard yelling expletives at Chilwell, who eventually gives up and turns back to the rest of the squad.

To some extent, one can understand the fans’ frustration as Chelsea, despite their heavy investment in the summer, are yet to get off the mark.

Their only win this season has come at the hands of newly-promoted Luton Town, a club that is languishing at the bottom of the log.

Lisandro Martinez embarrassed with filthy skill

Sports Brief also reported on how Lisandro Martinez was embarrassed by a Brighton player through a silky skill on Saturday.

Against Brighton and Hove Albion, Pascal Gross dummied Martinez before shooting past Andre Onana for their third goal of the afternoon.

The former Ajax star was left in no man's land after Gross' deft skill left him dazed like the whole squad was the entire afternoon at Old Trafford.
