Even Chelsea players couldn't help but love Mesut Özil and Héctor Bellerín on Saturday

Instagram is serious business.

Have you ever done something online in the heat of the moment and regretted it later? Anyone who looks at my Twitter account after about 1am on a weekend knows I have, but it even happens to a young footballer here and there. Sometimes it’s really bad, but other times it’s a little more harmless.

Enter Chelsea youth striker Patrick Bamford. Pat’s currently on loan at Burnley, and over the weekend was scrolling through his Instagram and (probably absent-mindedly) liked a few posts. The problem? They were Mesut Özil and Héctor Bellerín’s celebratory posts after Arsenal’s nuking-from-orbit of Chelsea on Saturday.


Chelsea fans were somewhat understandably annoyed, and poor Bamford had to issue a very serious apology to get them off his back.

With regards 2 the Instagram pics I liked, was only liking my friends pics as I’ve done many a time. No shade or disrespect intended. Sorry

Just another reminder that the things that happen #online are all very important.
