Jorginho Penalty Lifts Chelsea Past Frank Lampard’s Everton | Watch Highlights

Chelsea managed to scrape past Everton with a loe goal at Goodison Park as Frank Lampard’s side put up a strong fight against his former club, as reported by ESPN.

A Jorginho penalty deep into added time at the end of the first half was the only difference between the sides as Chelsea struggled to convert despite having 70% possession for most of the game.

There was a long stoppage in the first half when Ben Godfrey was stretchered off the pitch with a serious looking injury after a collision with Jordan Pickford and Kai Havertz.

As a result there were eight minutes added time at the end of the first 45 minutes and Chelsea capitalised when Abdoulaye Doucoure pushed Ben Chilwell over in the box. Jorginho stepped up and sent Pickford the wrong way to convert the penalty.

Raheem Sterling, who was making his Chelsea debut, did have the ball in the net a few minutes beforehand but it was ruled out for offside.

The 27-year-old had an excellent opportunity to tie up Chelsea’s win on 82 minutes but Vitalii Mykolenko managed to get enough of his body in front of the ball to see it drift just wide of Pickford’s net.
