Chelsea have been criticized for mocking Leeds’ relegation to the Championship on their official Twitter account.
During their live coverage of the game between Leeds and Chelsea at Elland Road last August (a game Leeds won 3-0), Chelsea tweeted “Start asserting ourselves!” in the 30th minute before needing to mention Leeds goals from Brenden Aaronson and Rodrigo in the space of seven minutes.
This led to the official Leeds account writing: ‘Life comes how fast you do!’.
Chelsea certainly haven’t forgotten that tweet as after Leeds’ relegation to the Championship was confirmed on Sunday, they quoted the original tweet saying “It certainly is.”
However, many Twitter users were keen to point out that Chelsea were in no position to poke fun at others given that they themselves endured a terrible campaign.

Another wrote: “You have just completed the bottom half after spending over £500m. I hope you will go bankrupt. good joke though.
