Chelsea fans were furious with the performance of referee Craig Pawson as he sent off two Blues and condemned the defending Premier League champions to an embarrassing opening day defeat.
And it seems as though Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi was also annoyed with the referee’s decision making.
Batshuayi was substituted with 20 minutes to play and Chelsea three nil down to Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
It had been a miserable day for Batshuayi who had toiled up front since Pawson issued a red card to Gary Cahill in the opening 15 minutes.
Cesc Fabregas had yet to given his marching orders when Batshuayi went off, but the damage had been done and the attacker clearly felt Pawson’s performance was not up to scratch.
Batshuayi leaves the pitch, but not before he approaches Pawson and gives him what looks like an incredibly sarcastic handshake.
Fabregas’ first yellow was for sarcastically applauding the referee and Batshuayi seemed to be hinting at the same kind of frustration when he was hauled off.
Batshuayi saw his replacement Alvaro Morata score one and set up another as Chelsea mounted a potential comeback.
David Luiz made it 3-2 in the 88th minute, but against nine men, Burnley managed to hang on to all three points.
Chelsea are now the first defending champions to concede three goals on the opening day of the season.
It is also the second season in a row the reigning champions have been beaten in the opening round of fixtures.
Batshuayi apologised to Chelsea fans after the game and promised the Blues faithful it would not happen again.
