The champions are being given a hiding by Burnley at home and are currently 3-0 down after just 45 minutes of football in the 2017-18 Premier League season, and social media has gone into meltdown.
Stamford Bridge is never an easy place to grab a result, but Sean Dyche's men are making it look effortless against a 10-man Blues squad after they had Gary Cahill sent to the showers early after a cynical challenge. Sam Vokes has a brace and Stephen Ward bagged a goal to leave Chelsea with a mountain to climb in the second half.

As well as 'acca's', Chelsea may well be on the way to duffing up a number of fantasy football teams too - queue the hoards of people who will be swapping Alvaro Morata for Vokes later on, then.

Just a little advice for Chelsea fans not panicking about this season.— Conteholic (@Conteholic) August 6, 2017
Prepare yourself for the worst and panic as much as you can.
Yep, football is back for good.
