CHELSEA fans might normally want to keep quiet about shopping.
At the very least, spending around £850million in three transfer windows to produce a mid-table Premier League team is nothing to shout about.

So perhaps that’s why, in the words of one viewer, a Blues’ star instead dispatched a rival Crystal Palace player to the shops – with a delightful, delayed finish.
“Enzo Fernandez just sent Munoz to Sainsbury’s and then to Tesco, what a goal,” posted one fan.
First, Fernandez cut back to leave Munoz tumbling onto his backside.
Then just as the Colombian scrambled up, the Argentine dummied to shoot – sending him to the ground once more.
It confirmed Chelsea‘s 13th straight Prem victory over Palace.
The Eagles had led through Jefferson Lerma’s stunning opener.
But Conor Gallagher struck a double against his old loan club ahead of Fernandez’s cheeky 94th-minute clincher.
The midfielder had Palace defender Daniel Munoz sliding to the floor TWICE before firing home to in the 3-1 away win.
Chelsea’s costliest buy, £115m Moises Caicedo, again struggled to justify his place alongside their second most expensive – £107m Fernandez.
But their fans lapped up the late treat from their World Cup winner, even if it was so painful for Munoz.
“Let’s stand up for Enzo Fernandez,” taunted one viewer.
“Enzo is in the form of his life,” claimed another – although some observers accused Chelsea of “over-celebrating” their late joy.
