In the second half, Thomas Tuchel's side made it 2-1 with 58 minutes on the clock when Jorginho converted his first spot-kick.
And with 20 minutes remaining, defender Andreas Christensen was brought on for Chelsea captain Azpilicueta, who went on to troll the travelling supporters as he made his way around the pitch.
You can see the footage below.

Leeds youngster Joe Gelhardt netted his first goal for the Whites to make it 2-2 but that man Jorginho bagged in injury time to grab all three points.
It's fair to say Saturday's clash at Stamford Bridge was a feisty affair.

In terms of Azpilicueta's future at Stamford Bridge, the 32-year-old defender will undoubtedly go down as a club legend but he could leave Chelsea on a free transfer at the end of the season.
But the Chelsea captain has struggled for regular game time in recent years. His contract comes to an end in June 2022 and according to reports, he will opt for a free transfer rather than a contract extension.
