Chelsea fans have already chosen whom to blame for Carabao Cup defeat to Liverpool

After Chelsea lost their golden opportunity to win another silverware after winning the FIFA club world cup in Abu Dhabi, fans of the club have chosen the player to blame for the loss.

Chelsea fans and supporters have flooded to social media on Sunday evening, to reveal their frustrations with one particular member of the club’s squad.

The Blues were of course back in action a short time ago.

After sealing glory at the Club World Cup, Thomas Tuchel’s men made the trip to Wembley to take on Liverpool, hopeful of making it two trophies in the space of a month.

When all was said and done in the English capital, however, unfortunately, Chelsea’s efforts came up short.

After a pulsating 120 minutes packed with drama, chances galore and disallowed goals was sent to a penalty shootout, the two sides still couldn’t be separated after a full 20 perfect spot-kicks.

Liverpool shot-stopper Caoimhin Kelleher, handed starting duties over Alisson for the day, subsequently stepped forward and slotted home with aplomb, leaving Kepa Arrizabalaga with the weight of the world on his shoulders, after being introduced off the bench with just minutes remaining in proceedings, specifically owing to his abilities in shootouts.

The Spaniard, however, after failing to keep out any of Chelsea’s 11 efforts, went on to blast his ensuing strike several yards clear of the crossbar, leaving Thomas Tuchel altogether red-faced on the touchline:

Mount slated

On the back of the action coming to a close at Wembley, however, it is in fact not Kepa whom the vast majority of the Chelsea faithful have been keen to make their frustrations with clear.

Instead, widely targeted has been Mason Mount, whose two gilt-edged misses from glorious positions during normal time ultimately cost his side dear:
