Football fans took to social media tonight to criticise live television coverage of a crucial FA Cup tie - after a mishap involving the opening goal.

ITV was busy showing replays of an earlier chance when Leeds United scored the opener against Chelsea in the eighth minute.

It was a first professional goal for the Leeds youngster Mateo Joseph, who capitalised on some sloppy Chelsea defending from a goal kick.

Viewers of ITV4's live coverage were quick to take to the internet to express their frustration that the TV crew had been caught unawares by the goal, which came after a quick interception.

The director cut back to the live action from a replay at about the time the ball was hitting the back of the net. 

The ITV team was more alert for the action that followed as Chelsea hit back to lead 2-1 approaching half time.

Here's a flavour of the comments...
