Chelsea have the lead against Everton!
The Blues looked solid in a disjointed half, but ultimately got their breakthrough from a pretty bizarre piece of play from Everton.
Ben Chilwell was released in the box, and two defenders combined to bring him down in a totally unnecessary way.
Jorginho cool despatched the penalty for the Blues’ first goal of the season. Hopefully the game opens up in the second half and we see a bit more excitement coming off the bench to secure this game.
