The 21-year-old has started all 10 of the Dutch side’s matches this season, scoring five times.
But while he has become popular with the Vitesse fans – the same can certainly not be said with fierce rivals NEC Nijmegen.
In Sunday’s (October 23) 1-1 draw at NEC’s Stadion de Goffert, the home fans began pelting him with paper cups from the stands.
As he made his way to the corner flag, the midfielder got involved in a scrap with the opposition.
While there is no apparent reason for this melee, it subsequently enraged NEC fans.
And when Baker was eventually ready to swing the ball in, missiles rained down on him – no doubt contributing to the wayward cross which was easily cleared.
Still, if the talented player continues his wonderful form in the Eredivisie, he may not have to deal with such fans for much longer.
Among some of the many highlights of Baker’s season so far was a brilliant 30-yard screamer against AZ Alkmaar.
He has already spoken of his desire to return to his parent club and believes playing in Holland has helped him improve as a player.
“I want to score as many as I can, assist as many as I can,” he told Chelsea’s official website.
“It’s just the start of the season but I need to keep doing my best every day and keep improving so I can get back to Chelsea, where I’d like to be.”
But the England Under-21 international will have to continue his goalscoring form to stand any chance of a move back to Stamford Bridge.
The London side currently have an incredible 38 players out on loan so competition is tough.
And after smashing Manchester United 4-0 at the weekend, they will be in no hurry to get any players back.
