Timo Werner was left humiliated as a Chelsea fan demanded he was sold by the club at an open training session on Wednesday afternoon.
Ahead of their match with Arsenal on Sunday, Thomas Tuchel’s men trained at Stamford Bridge in front of a limited crowd before taking photos with their Champions League and Super Cup trophies.
New signing Romelu Lukaku was there and getting himself prepared for the big game; the Belgian striker signed for the Blues last week in a club record-breaking £97.5m transfer from Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old is thought to give the Blues a fighting chance of winning the league this season, with other incomings reportedly on the way.

However, one fan made it known that he did not think the club could be successful whilst still employing German forward Werner.
With the players cooling down after their training session and taking on some fluids, the supporter was asked for a score prediction for the weekend’s game by the host, trying to entertain the crowd.
But instead of giving a scoreline, the so-called fan replied: “Listen. I’ve got a word yeah. Let’s have it, right. Get Werner out the club.”
The message was met by loud boos from the rest of the supporters which drowned out any risk of awkwardness, though footage shows how loud the speakers were at the session and so Tuchel and some of his squad, including Werner, probably heard the comment.
The live stream footage from the club’s official YouTube channel then pans to a shot of Werner looking despondent and tired before he slowly gets up and walks over to his teammates, who were preparing for a photoshoot.
Werner scored six and assisted eight last season, though he could have had plenty more if he wasn’t so wasteful in front of goal.
His xG for the previous campaign suggested that he should’ve scored 11 based on the opportunities he was given, so to score less than half of that showcases that the former RB Leipzig forms was both out of form and confidence.
With a new season already underway and the arrival of Lukaku meaning he can play on his preferred left-wing, the £47m signing has the opportunity to right the wrongs of the previous campaign and silence the doubters amongst the Blues fanbase.
