Chelsea fans have made their displeasure known occasionally when the team has underperformed this season, but they have been equally very supportive of the lads.

One occasion that comes to mind was the 3-1 win against Crystal Palace three weeks ago, when the traveling fans did something rather unusual to get the boys going at a most difficult time.

After going 1-0 down against Palace at half-time, the Chelsea fans at Selhurst Park joined their voices together to sing Bob Marley’s ‘Three Little Birds’ at the start of the second period to galvanise the players into eventually getting a 3-1 win.

To be honest, it was the DJ at the stadium that first played the song in a bid to calm agitated fans down, as centre referee, Mike Oliver tried to get an issue with his communication system sorted out for several minutes, before Chelsea fans got caught up in the wave, and used it as motivation for their players.

Reacting to the support from the fans on that occasion, Chelsea right-back, Gusto said he really enjoyed the moment, and admitted it means a lot to the players to have such amazing people behind them.

He told Sky Sports: “One moment I stopped myself and I heard this, and I was really, really happy. After, I just tried to focus on the game and do my best.

“I love this song [Three Little Birds]. We are very happy to have these kind of fans. We know the English people love football and that’s the difference to the French, but it’s a good thing for the team to have these fans behind us and to have them.”
