Chelsea cruised to a 3-1 victory away to Huddersfield on Tuesday night, with Willian nabbing a goal and two assists in an impressive individual display.
However, in the stands, the travelling support were rather less successful with their chants, scoring an almighty own-goal when trying to goad the Huddersfield faithful.
Singing “Champions of England, you’ll never sing that”, the Chelsea fans made a right mess of their footballing history, forgetting (or simply not knowing at all) that the Terriers had won three first division titles in the mid-1920s, some 29 years before the Blues won their first in 1955.
Telegraph journalist, Sam Wallace, was one of the first to report the historic faux pas.
‘Champions of England, you’ll never sing that’, sing the Chelsea fans to Huddersfield who won their first league title 31 years before Chelsea

Who said ‘modern football is rubbish’, eh!?
On the pitch, along with Willian, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Pedro also got on the scoresheet for Chelsea, with Laurent Depoitre heading home a consolation goal late on for the hosts.
Antonio Conte and co. move level on points with Manchester United, at least temporarily, while Huddersfield find themselves 12th, five points above the relegation zone.
