'Crying, Did not age well': Some Chelsea fans in hysterics at what Leeds tweeted out during Saturday's game
Chelsea supporters on social media did not miss the opportunity to mock the Leeds United Twitter handler following a poorly timed post last weekend.
The two historic enemies contested an enthralling battle on Saturday that suited the side’s rivalry.
Thomas Tuchel’s men clinched victory in the dying embers of the match, thanks to an ice-cool penalty conversion from Jorginho.
Leeds had gone ahead earlier in the game due to their own spot-kick, which was calmly dispatched by Raphinha.
Shortly after the Brazilian put his effort past Edouard Mendy, the person in charge of the Leeds Twitter account decided to saviour the moment in a simple manner.
‘Hop, skip and goal!!’ was the caption, with a picture of Raphinha in motion attached below.
This may have been a subtle dig aimed towards Jorginho, who has trademarked the hop, skip and jump technique from 12-yards.
Karma really can be a cruel mistress.
Jorginho just in time
After Mason Mount equalised for Chelsea, Jorginho sent Tuchel’s team in front shortly after interval thanks to a penalty.
One hop, skip and a goal was followed by another in the 94th minute, ensuring the Blues turned one point into all three.
Leeds had drawn level via a Joe Gelhardt strike seven minutes from the end, yet their resistance was ultimately for nothing.
As was the now ill-advised tweet about Raphinha, who got taught a lesson in the hop, skip and jump by the Italian master himself.
Just to rub extra salt into the wounds, Blues fans piled onto the social media upload to make sure the guilty party did not forget their error.
Here’s how they reacted:
