He exchanged a penalty for a goal: Jorginho scored the 1-0 of Chelsea vs. Everton at Goodison Park | VIDEO

Shortly after the end of the first half, Chelsea had the opportunity to make it 1-0 against Everton. Jorginho was in charge of executing the penalty that opened the scoring at Goodison Park.

The penalty came after Mason Mount entered the area and Adboulaye Doucuré tried to stop him, but did so recklessly. The Chelsea player dropped and the referee awarded a penalty.

It should be noted that, before the goal, fifteen minutes into the first half there was a strong cross in which Ben Godfrey ended up injured and had to be removed from the field of play at Goodison Park.

An uncontrollable pain, which could mean a serious ankle injury for the Everton player. What happened? It all started when the ball left the bottom line, but the referee let the action continue, since it is the VAR regulation.

The game continued and Jordan Pickford made a mistake that left Kai Havertz in front of goal. Godfrey tried to stop the ‘blues’ footballer and ended up getting seriously injured.

The game was stopped for more than six minutes to attend to the 24-year-old defender, who left the field of play on a stretcher and with oxygen. The statement from the club led by Lampard is expected to define the footballer’s status.

After facing Everton, Chelsea will host one of their great rivals, Antonio Conté’s Tottenham; while Frank Lampard’s team will have to visit Aston Villa.
