Things got a little spicy on social media on Monday afternoon as Domino's Pizza panned Chelsea's transfer business.
The Blues have scored one or two pepperowni-goals this summer, missing out on Jules Kounde to Barcelona and allowing record-signing Romelu Lukaku to return to Inter Milan on loan. Thomas Tuchel has managed to refresh his squad to some degree with the arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.
But that was two weeks ago, and the west Londoners have been inactive ever since, leading Domino's to drop a tweet more filthy than a Hawaiian pizza. And what's more, they tweeted it completely out of the blue.

"We've delivered about 852,609 pizzas since Chelsea last delivered a successful transfer announcement," they tweeted, instantly attracting the attention of football fans up and down the land.
"I'd like to report a murder," wrote one amused supporter. As another said: "Burn after burn." A third person commented: "I have seen a lot of bullying these days, but this …. This… this really hurt."
What do you make of Chelsea's transfer business so far this summer? Let us know in the comments section below.
While a fourth user chimed in with: "Dominos out here with the smoke."
Others riffed on the number Domino's included in their tweet to joke about other clubs. "How many have delivered since when last arsenal won the champions league," asked one.
As someone else joked: "How many have you delivered since Spurs last won a major trophy?"
Chelsea might have had a hit-and-miss summer so far in the transfer market, but they could be about to land a real coup in the shape of Brighton & Hove Albion defender Marc Cucurella.
The Spaniard has been linked with a move to Manchester City throughout the window and on Friday handed in a transfer request in an attempt to push through a switch to the Etihad.
But the Blues have swooped in to try and sign the 25-year-old and are now reportedly in advanced talks for Cucurella, whose asking price is £50million.
