Chelsea have been branded a “disgrace” after playing Queen’s Another One Bites The Dust over the Stamford Bridge tannoy ahead of their clash with Wolves on Wednesday night.
Thomas Tuchel is taking charge of his first match as Blues head coach against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, having replaced sacked boss Frank Lampard on Tuesday night.
Lampard was relieved of his duties on Monday amid a run of five defeats in eight matches, which has left the west London club languishing in ninth place.
His sacking has not gone down well with Chelsea fans, who have unfurled a banner at the Bridge which reads: “Circus continues”.

The Blues faithful were desperate to see Lampard, widely considered the greatest player in their history, be given time to pull them out of their current slump.
Nevertheless, time is not a word Roman Abramovich has been too familiar with since taking the Blues reins in 2003, meaning his former midfielder fell victim to the axe early on Monday morning.

And to rub salt in the wounds, reports suggest Chelsea’s in-house DJ played Queen’s famous ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ hit over the Stamford Bridge PA system as both sets of teams warmed up ahead of Tuchel’s debut.
Blues fans have been left outraged by the song choice, taking to Twitter to slam the club for poking fun at Lampard’s dismissal as head coach.
One wrote: “Just went through the lyrics absolutely disgraceful not conducive for a new manager’s first game”.
