Sometimes you’re the bug and sometimes you’re the windshield.

On Tuesday at Shakhtar Donetsk, Chelsea was definitely the bug.

Playing their worst game since their dismantling at the hands of Atletico Madrid and Radamel Falcao in the UEFA Super Cup, the Blues were picked apart by Shakhtar Donetsk, 2-1 at Donbass Arena in UEFA Champions League group play. The win continued the hosts' unbeaten home streak to 11 months and made the defending European Champions look extremely average.

There were very few bright spots for Chelsea, who fell to second place in Group E with four points while Shakhtar took command of the group with the win and now sits on seven points.

The two clubs meet again in west London on November 7 in what has now become a huge match in the tournament for the Blues.
