Before Chelsea’s October 21 Premier League match against Arsenal, a supporter chanted “London is Red” at Mykhailo Mudryk.
Mudryk was the target of the Arsenal-inspired remark as he boarded a team bus while representing Ukraine internationally.
Before agreeing to join Chelsea in January, Mudryk was close to joining Arsenal. This decision has since drawn criticism because to the discrepancy in success between the two clubs.
Since spending £88.5 million to join Chelsea, the 22-year-old has struggled, with only one goal and two assists in 25 outings.
Due to Mudryk’s terrible play, he has become even more widely ridiculed for turning down Arsenal. In August, a video showing Arsenal supporters approaching the player in his car went viral.
In the video, one supporter can be heard yelling, “Arsenal bro, Mudryk Arsenal.” Your dream team is here. Come on, if you had played, you could have captured the Premier League.
On Thursday, Mudryk was attacked once more when a fan chanted “London is Red” at him in reference to Chelsea’s upcoming match versus Arsenal following the break for international play.
The fan said, “London is red. Why are you asking for a picture?” Mudryk responded.
— Excuse me, boss, who do you support? (@mudzin1535) October 12th, 2023
Before saying anything about Arsenal, the supporter had requested a selfie from Mudryk, to which the winger responded, “Why are you asking for a picture then?”
In Mudryk’s eyes, a green laser shone during Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in the previous campaign.
He scored in Chelsea’s previous victory over west London rivals Fulham, so he’ll be out for blood as the Blues try to make it three straight Premier League wins.
Arsenal, on the other hand, has been unbeaten in their first eight Premier League games and is second in the table after defeating Manchester City on Sunday.
