Wesley Fofana completely wipes out steward in the win against Leeds while fans take to troll Chelsea over their ’embarrassing’ chant.
The 22-year-old scored the only goal of the game, but had an interesting afternoon, as he accidentally wiped out a Stamford Bridge steward.
The incident came with just ten minutes left on the clock in a match which Chelsea won 1-0, a much needed three points for them to ease pressure on manager Graham Potter.
Fofana was in a race for the ball with Leeds’ Wilfried Gnonto, with the Blues player receiving a nudge.
Fofana then glided along the pitch and accidentally brought down a steward walking in by the side of the pitch.

The £70million summer deal went straight through her legs, causing the woman to lose footing and fall to the ground.
Fofana’s goal was only the seventh time Chelsea had scored since November 6th. They are 10th in the Premier League table, 11 points behind fourth place Tottenham.
Next up for Chelsea, it’s the Champions League match against Dortmund at Stamford Bridge with the Bundesliga outfit taking a 1-0 lead into it from the first leg.
Meanwhile, after Saturday’s goal against Leeds, Chelsea decided to sign a chant celebrating the fact they finally scored a goal.
As Fofana scored the club’s first goal since their draw against West Ham United, fans celebrated the goal with a song that didn’t go down well on social media.
They sang: “We’ve scored a goal, we’ve scored a goal, we’ve scored a goal.”

Player of the Match: Wesley Fofana
Chelsea head coach Graham Potter: “We’re delighted with the win. We’ve had a tough period. I’m delighted for the players and supporters, who have had to suffer. It was pleasing to get the win.
“We started the game well and created some opportunities. Playing against Leeds is always tough, they’ve got a high intensity. We got the goal which was a pleasing moment for us all and then we’ve got something to lose in the second half which is where you’d expect us to be given the run we’ve had.
“It’s really good for the players to keep a clean sheet, win a game and have that feeling. It’s nice.
“It’s an important three points, it’s good for confidence and morale. The boys have been suffering because they care. Our supporters have been suffering as well. It’s been a tough period for us, it really has. The win gives us a chance to recover and to prepare for a massive game on Tuesday night.
“I firmly believe in the players and the team but I also acknowledge that the results haven’t been good enough and that’s my responsibility. Any criticism is absolutely fair and warranted, we have to take it and try to improve and win. That’s the job.”
Leeds boss Javi Gracia: “I’m frustrated, disappointed with the result but on the other hand after watching the attitude of my players, I can only say I’m proud of them.
“We need to improve many things but if we analyse the game, in the first 30 minutes the opponent was better, they dominated the game and possession, they created two clear chances but after that moment we grew up with the ball and created some chances.
“The second half was similar, they had their moments and the goal came from a corner. We tried until the end, the team showed character and good attitude. The corner kick was the difference.
“We tried to be aggressive from the beginning, we didn’t know if Chelsea would play with three or four at the back. We tried to adjust during the game and did it well.
“The big problem is not creating chances. We need to improve the effectiveness to finish better, to be more clinical. The opponent had two or three clear chances but they scored one and we weren’t able to.
“During the week in the FA Cup, we created 16 shots and had more clear chances, and didn’t concede the chances we conceded today. It’s something we have to improve.
“The goals are not only about the strikers, all the team has to collaborate in scoring.”
