While few Chelsea players managed to cover themselves in glory, it was the midfield duo Caicedo and Fernández who took the most shots.

The pair were massively swarmed in the middle of the park and, after teaming up for £115million and £105million respectively, both stars have a pretty hefty target on their backs.

While it is not clear why Caicedo and Fernández deleted their accounts on X, it has been suggested that a torrent of abuse on social media could be the reason.

Caicedo also had the misfortune of being named as Ally McCoist's 'flop of the season' so far, beating Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana to the title.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the Rangers legend said: "The poor guy. I have to say I've seen him [Caicedo] a couple of times, especially at Old Trafford [a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United]...

"Him and Enzo Fernandez, both, to be honest, a quarter of a billion pounds... Caicedo would surely get my vote before Onana.

"Onana is nothing like the signing they thought he would be, but I don't give him the failure of the season, I think it's tough.

"I decided on Caicedo."

While the pair will have the chance to put things right against Liverpool later this month in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley, there is still work to be done in the Premier League.

Chelsea are currently in tenth position, well below the European places that Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to secure before the end of the campaign.
