Chelsea fans gathered outside Stamford Bridge to protest the club's involvement in the European Super League ahead of tonight's Premier League match against Brighton.
Football fans around the world continue to go against the establishment of the new ESL. Leeds United fans were outside Elland road burning Liverpool shirts before kick off of Leeds 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
Chelsea are set to host Brighton in a crucial Premier League tonight as they continue to fight for the top four but their fans have emulated their Leeds fans to come out in large numbers are protest against the European Super League.
Though reports suggest that Chelsea and Man City are two clubs who were not convinced about the Super League idea and could pull out if the heat gets too much.
