Brighton's 'jacked' physios at their game against Chelsea game left fans believing they're actually bodyguards.
Brighton ace Evan Ferguson stumbled to the ground in the 35th minute after nearly scoring a powerful header from a corner. And the striker needed help to his feet by the Seagulls' medical team, consisting of two burly men.
And while the well-built physios flanked Ferguson around the pitch as he tried to walk off the health issue, fans gawped at the size of the medical assistants. The muscle mountains caused a huge stir on social media where shocked supporters shared their surprise.

One user quipped: "Why has Brighton employed WWE wrestlers as their Physios? Just look at these two monsters." And a second added: "Anyone watching the Chelsea game just see how absolutely stacked the two Brighton physios are."
Then a third user quizzed: "Why on earth are Brighton’s Physios so jacked???." Before a fourth quipped: "The Brighton physios stealing the spotlight for a minute there."

A fifth user reckoned one of the physios should've been playing on the pitch instead and said: "Can Brighton sub one of their physios on?". While a sixth fan accredited the Seagulls' success in the Premier League this season to the size of the medics, saying: "The secret of Brighton's success? Their two *absolutely tonk* physios."
But despite the help of the hench physios, Ferguson wasn't able to recover from the injury and was replaced by Danny Welbeck just before half-time, with Chelsea 1-0 up. The introduction of Welbeck turned the game on its head as he netted an equalizer moments later, inspiring the Seagulls to a 2-1 victory, capped by Julio Enciso's 30-yard screamer in the 69th minute.
