Fans left fuming after ITV make unfortunate mistake during live broadcast of Chelsea vs Leeds

Fans left fuming after ITV make unfortunate mistake during live broadcast of Chelsea vs Leeds

Leeds fans were far from happy following the FA Cup blunder.

Fans were understandably frustrated on Wednesday night after ITV cameras missed Leeds' opener in their FA Cup fifth round clash against Chelsea.

Mateo Joseph gave the visitors a surprise early lead at Stamford Bridge, when he pounced on a poor pass from Chelsea defender Axel Disasi before knocking it past Robert Sanchez.

But fans at home were busy watching a replay of a Dan James chance when Joseph found the net. As you can imagine, plenty of fans on social media had their say on the mistake.

One said: "Leeds ahead at Stamford Bridge. Massive goal for the Yorkshire…..massive fail ITV for pretty much missing the goal whilst showing a replay."

A second wrote: "Who made a bigger mistake for that goal: Disasi or the ITV director who didn't cut to the live action until a split second before the goal was scored?"

A third commented/: "Shame we didn’t get to see it as you were too busy showing a replay of something else," and a fourth added: "Missed the goal as ITV was showing three replays of a missed chance."

It was a far from ideal start to the FA Cup clash for Chelsea but Nicolas Jackson equalised for Mauricio Pochettino's side with 15 minutes on the clock before Mykhailo Mudryk gave them a 2-1 lead.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's game, Pochettino spoke about Leeds' away support.

“I understand the disappointment from our fans, but we need their help, like always. It’s important to create a very good atmosphere because Leeds is going to be pushing with 4,000 or 5,000 fans," he said following their defeat in the Carabao Cup final.

“I know it’s going to be really tough, the game.”

He added: “We are all tired because, always, when you lose a final it’s not easy to recover, but I am so happy because they are really focused and they move forward.

"If you ask all the players today, they want to be involved in the game.”
