The Internet is never slow to mock Chelsea, and there has been no exception with the somewhat anti-climactic Stamford Bridge career of Alexandre Pato.

The 26-year-old Brazilian arrived at Chelsea in January and, some 60 days later, has yet to make an appearance for the Blues.

The defending Premier League champions' season has undergone a mini-revival of sorts and—despite being eliminated from both the Champions League and FA Cups in recent weeks—Chelsea sit 10th in the Premier League. 

But Pato's continued absence from the side has prompted frustrated fans to register the website HasAlexandrePatoPlayedForChelsea.com to track the former AC Milan man's progress in usurping the likes of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Bertrand Traore in Guus Hiddink's plans.

Chelsea's next fixture is against bottom-placed Aston Villa on Saturday.
