Football fans loved seeing 'The Mask of Zero' in the Stamford Bridge crowd
Let's be honest, the end of the Premier League season has been, for want of a better word, shit.
The title race was all but mathematically over in January, we've had a fair idea which teams were going down for a couple of weeks and the top four - despite the attempts of some to convince us otherwise - has also been quite obvious for some while.
But fear not, Greatest League In the World™ fans, the hero we all need right now is here. Or at least he was for a brief while during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night...
One of the final games to be televised on Sky Sports in 2017/18, the game was goalless in the 23rd minute. At this point, the 0-0 scoreline on Sky's on-screen graphic aligned perfectly with the eyes of one of the supporters in the crowd at Stamford Bridge. This was quickly picked up on by some of those watching, sparking a flurry of tweets, many of which speculating he was some kind of clean sheet-eyed superhero...
This appears to have been the first tweet...

As for the game itself, the point Huddersfield picked up saw them guarantee their Premier League survival, leaving Swansea City on the brink of relegation.
Following a goalless draw against recently crowned champions Manchester City at the weekend, David Wagner's side took a surprise lead in the 50th minute when Laurent Depoitre finished Aaron Mooy's ball over the top. Chelsea drew level minutes later after Mathias Jorgensen's clearance ricocheted into the Huddersfield goal off Marcos Alonso's face.
That was, however, the end of the scoring.
