A Seriously 'P**sed Off' Raphinha Confronted Leeds Fans Who Refused To Give The Ball Back vs Chelsea

Jesse Marsch's side remain in the Premier League relegation zone with two games left and were outplayed at Elland Road.

Mason Mount had already put the away side ahead inside four minutes, but Dan James' red card 20 minutes later effectively ended the contest.

In footage shared to social media, a woman can be seen holding a ball which has gone out of play claiming it to be hers.

Raphinha then runs over, knowing Leeds' odds of survival lower with every passing minute, to plead his case.

The chances of a Leeds comeback were slim but it's important to have everyone pulling in the same direction in a relegation scrap.

Supporters on social media have had their say and they genuinely can't believe it.

One commented: "In a relegation battle FFS and very likely to go down, wtf is wrong with them!?"

Another said: "Raphinha hates that league man."

A third put: "Alonso's face says it all."

While someone tweeted: "No way!! These fans care more about bagging a souvenir than getting a result."

Marsch told BBC Sport: "Two tackles in the last two games that were a little bit crossing the line and hurting the team. I'm not going to blame or finger point any of our players. They've given everything they can. We have to stay within boundaries in not jeopardising ourselves."

Leeds sit 18th, level on points with Burnley, but the Clarets have a game in hand.

Everton, meanwhile, pulled further away from the drop with a 0-0 draw against already relegated Watford.
