BEHDAD EGHBALI was forced to run away from angry Chelsea fans following their defeat to Aston Villa.
The Blues' nightmare start to the season continued on Sunday when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Unai Emery's high-flying Villans.
Ollie Watkins' 73rd-minute strike condemned the West Londoners to their WORST start to a domestic campaign in a whopping 45 years.
The Stamford Bridge faithful were far from happy as they made their way home following yet another disappointing result.
Blues co-owner Eghbali was spotted leaving the ground by frustrated fans, who videoed him making a hasty getaway.
The American picked up the pace and jumped into the back of a black Range Rover after realising he was being pursued.

"Look at him running!" said a Chelsea supporter as the 47-year-old looked to get away from fans.
Defeat to Villa has left Chelsea toiling in 14th place in the Premier League table – a mere three points above the relegation zone.
Mauricio Pochettino's troops – who finished in twelfth place last season – have only tasted victory once in the league this campaign, much to the frustration of Eghbali and fellow co-owner Todd Boehly.
New Blues boss Pochettino revealed: “Of course they are disappointed but at the same time they need to support the plan.”

He added: "Football is about winning but players when they are young need to learn.
"That is why we feel disappointed. We have too many situations like this.”
Pochettino also lamented Malo Gusto's straight red card and subsequent three-game match.
The Argentine said: "[In the] first half, I think we deserved more.
"[In the] second half, we started on top of them but after [the] red card the game changes.
“We need [to] try to build the confidence and give them all of the support they need.
"The performance is good, not excellent, but we are missing goals.”
Chelsea will be back in action on Wednesday night, welcoming high-flying Brighton to the Bridge for their Carabao Cup third-round tie.
