Chelsea fans labelled Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana as the "Chuckle Brothers" after gifting Dinamo Zagreb the opening goal in their Champions League encounter.
The Blues had started the better, with new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang going close on a couple of occasions. But that early promise was undone on 15 minutes when Koulibaly and Fofana combined to gift Zagreb the lead.
Koulibaly, a £33million signing from Napoli in the summer, sold himself against Zagreb forward Bruno Petkovic on the halfway line, going in for a header that he was never going to win. Petkovic won the ball, and his deft flick played in Mislav Orsic, who went up against Fofana in a foot race.

Despite starting ahead of Orsic, Fofana allowed the Croatian forward to get ahead of him and race towards goal, where he poked a wonderful right-footed finish beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga to give Zagreb a surprise 1-0 lead.
Chelsea's defending would not have gone down well with Thomas Tuchel in the dugout, and Blues fans didn't think much of it either.
Do you think Koulibaly and Fofana are good enough for Chelsea? Let us know in the comments section below.
Fofana and Koulibaly both came in for intense criticism, with one supporter labelling them as like the "Chuckle Brothers." They wrote: "Koulibaly and Fofana looking like the Chuckle Brothers."
Someone else said: "Koulibaly is s****. Why was be trying to head that, when it wasn't there to be won." A third user added: "Koulibaly, frauds always find a way to Chelsea Football Club."
A fourth person said: "If Thiago Silva is on the pitch that goal doesn’t happen btw. Lack of communication between both Koulibaly and Fofana, no need for both to commit…"
While another user commented: "Fofana and koulibaly escorting the goal scorer They can't even run."
Chelsea will be hoping to go deep in the Champions League this season, having exited to Real Madrid at the quarter-final stage last time around. The Blues famously won Europe's top-tier competition for a second time in 2021.
