Mykhailo Mudryk was involved in an argument with a Chelsea supporter over his lack of goals for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The Ukraine international has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge since his £89 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk a year ago.

The 23-year-old has scored three goals and registered two assists this season but has been unable to hold down a regular starting role under Pochettino due to his inconsistency.

Mudryk has also received criticism from Chelsea’s supporters and following their 4-2 defeat at home to Wolves on Sunday, one fan shared an exchange with the winger on Instagram.

In the conversation which is believed to have taken place in December, the Chelsea supporter told Mudryk his performances are ‘not good enough’ and that ‘something needs to change’.

Mudryk then appeared to challenge the Chelsea supporter to a one-on-one battle for a £10,000 prize, to which the fan replied, ‘bro at this point I will personally give you money every time you score’.

Speaking last week, Pochettino warned Mudryk that he needs to show more consistency in order to improve at Chelsea.

‘He started the game against Middlesbrough in the semi-final, which is one of the most important games for us.

‘Yes, now he is on the bench. Look, it’s about the form during the season – if you keep your form and you are the best during every training session.

‘As coaching staff, we are a meritocracy – we are going to play with the players who are going to do their best on the pitch.”

‘I think he’s a young guy that arrived here one year ago. We know the circumstances around [the transfer].

‘Of course, he needs to improve. He has amazing quality and potential, but it’s a [team] game, it’s not tennis.

‘We have players that need to perform in a group. If you see him, it’s amazing, but after, you need to adapt and play for the team – he needs to adapt, and all of that needs time.’
