Chelsea fans make the same joke after Rudiger’s comical own goal vs Sheff Utd

Chelsea supporters were all making the same joke after Jorginho's penalty restored the Blues' lead moments after an own goal from Antonio Rudiger had put Sheffield United level in their Premier League clash at Brammall Lane on Sunday.

After Mason Mount's strike put Chelsea 1-0 up in the first-half, a calamitous miscommunication between Rudiger and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy resulted in an own goal.

Reacting on social media, one Chelsea supporter wrote :"What a terrible own goal from Rudiger, really have no idea what Antonio Rudiger was doing there."

"First goal conceded under Tuchel and it’s Antonio Rudiger what a finish icl", joked a second.

"Antonio Rudiger what is this?" questioned a third.

"if only timo werner could finish like this", joked another.

However, Chelsea soon regained their lead from the penalty spot after a VAR review, with Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale bringing down Timo Werner in the box.

Jorginho converted the resulting spot kick, with just 70 seconds elapsing in between Rudiger's own goal and the initial foul by Ramsdale.

Speaking on co-commentary for BBC Radio 5 Live, former Everton midfielder Leon Osman said: "Big celebrations from Chelsea players all over the field – really sloppy back-pass puts Aaron Ramsdale in a terrible position.

"Celebrations no bigger than those of Antonio Rudiger, that gets him out of trouble for that own goal."

Chelsea fans also made the same point, with supporters joking that he was "the most relieved player on the pitch".

"Rudiger must be the most relieved man in the ground", wrote one.

"Rudiger will be the most relieved man in the stadium that Jorginho restored Chelsea's lead…" wrote another.
