CHELSEA fans online revelled in Manchester United’s 7-0 defeat to Liverpool… after Red Devils supporters had poked fun at Mykhailo Mudryk.
Going into the weekend, Twitter users goaded Blues by pointing out the £88million Ukrainian’s lack of goals and assists.

This led to fans mocking up “007” memes ahead of his seventh appearance – referencing no goals and no assists in seven games.
The rampant Reds mauled Erik ten Hag’s men, with Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah grabbing doubles before Roberto Firmino’s late strike.
And as it happened Mudryk didn’t even get off the bench to make his seventh appearance as Chelsea beat Leeds 1-0, leaving him stuck on six.
One Blues supporter tweeted: “Man United fans were getting gassed over Mudryk potentially being 007, you’re worried about the wrong 7.”
A second joked: “Potter’s Chelsea kept a clean sheet at Anfield.”
And a third similarly quipped: “Man United fans were worried about the wrong 007.”
Fans of other clubs also mocked the Red Devils, with one tweeting: “I can’t believe we waited for Mykhailo Mudryk 007 day to arrive only for Manchester United to claim the crown.”
A United fan hit back at Chelsea supporters: “I know we conceded 7 but I know a mid table club ain’t piping up like this.”
Despite their win over Leeds, the Blues remain tenth in the Prem table.
Wesley Fofana bagged a rare Chelsea goal on 53 minutes, enough to see Graham Potter’s side earn a much-needed three points.
Meanwhile, United remain third – seven points above Jurgen Klopp’s men.
