Villa supporters at least saw some fight from the full-back on Saturday...
There was also plenty of criticism aimed at his general ability, with onlookers suggesting Aston Villa deserve to go down if they start the 31-year-old defender...
But, among Villa fans, there was also some positivity directed at the full-back. It's hard to believe, with Villa doing so, so badly this season, but supporters were pleased by one aspect of Hutton's performance that was matched by very few.
Indeed, Hutton was praised by many Aston Villa fans for at least showing some fight against Chelsea.
Yes, the 31-year-old was sent off late on and, yes, he doesn't look up to the task of being a Premier League footballer anymore. But at least he is going down fighting, a concept the vast majority of the Aston Villa squad just aren't familiar with.
Here's how fans reacted to Hutton's performance v Chelsea on Saturday:
