The Frenchman struggled to make an impact as Arsenal ran out 1-0 victors earlier today.
The domestic season began with a whimper for Chelsea who, despite controlling possession, looked unthreatening against a disciplined Arsenal side.
He was largely anonymous, struggling to shake Laurent Koscielny or take advantage of the Gunners’ high defensive line.
The striker’s best moment came when he broke on the left and teed up a perfect ball, only for Ramires to head over from close-range.
With Costa’s seemingly unending injury concerns and Falcao still unproven in the Premier League, Chelsea’s options up front start to look a tad light.
Twitter was awash with reaction to the game and Loic Remy, in particular, fell foul of the Chelsea faithful:
Remy is still at Wembley looking for the onside line.— Chelseafc News (@Chelseanewsfc1) August 2, 2015
Remy is just USELESS. As for Falcao______am speechless— Andre ★ Rtd Jigolo (@bleedingfunds) August 2, 2015
Remy was like Arsenals 12th man the amount of times he got caught offside and gifted them— Ryan (@CFCRy) August 2, 2015
Disappointed to lose to that lot but I'm far more concerned about how unconvincing we looked up front.Remy's movement was nonexistent. #CFC— Baxter Borman (@BaxterBorman) August 2, 2015
Remy is effective against small-teams but ineffective at any decent standard - Falcao much better. Fabregas struggles to see passes— Sid Celery (@sidcelery) August 2, 2015
What was worrying though was Remy's performance that resembled a sleepless, hungover Sunday league striker— Tyler Chambers (@TylerChambers_) August 2, 2015
@FroggyChels Remy's a back up striker for a reason. But then all strikers blow hit & cold, it's nature of the beast— Allison Fradgley (@allifradgley) August 2, 2015
Remy is still needed. I don't think he's good at setting the tone as a starting striker but you can't deny his impact of the bench— Blue Soldier (@samitCFC8) August 2, 2015
And one fan seemed to sum up the general sentiment with a particularly damning review of the Frenchman's display:
