Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Chelsea manager today after his disastrous start to the season with the Premier League champions.

The 52-year-old Portuguese had been in his second spell at the club, taking charge in June 2013.

Chelsea finished eight points clear last season and won the League Cup, but have lost nine of their 16 league games so far and are 16th in the table.

They are only one point above the relegation places.

Mourinho's final match was Monday's 2-1 defeat at leaders Leicester City.

Here is the best memes and reaction to the sensational news:

Guus Hiddink is the current favourite to replace Mourinho until the end of the season.

The Blues are next in action against Sunderland on Saturday.
