It was only in mid-May that Jose Mourinho's status as the self-styled 'Special One' was rubber-stamped when his Chelsea side finished eight points ahead of their nearest rivals as they romped to the Premier League title.

However, Mourinho had to sit in suffering silence on Saturday as Southampton fans taunted him with cries of 'you're not special any more' and 'getting sacked in the morning' after their side pulled off a surprise 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Bemused football followers are now asking the question, 'what on earth is happening at Chelsea?'

The feeling of discontent by fans was then unleashed on Twitter, with the hashtag ‘Mourinho Out’ being twitted by thousands.
