What ensued before Jorginho's spot-kick?

In a rather lengthy first-half additional time, Chelsea full-back Ben Chilwell was bundled in the penalty box by Everton midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Prior to his spot-kick, central defender Yerry Mina approached Jorginho to get into his head but a strong-willed Jorginho paid no attention to the Colombian before perfectly dispatching his penalty devoid of his characteristic hop-skip-and-kick style.

Jorginho's strong-mindedness proved decisive as Chelsea picked their first win at Goodison Park since 2017.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Chelsea put a troubled pre-season behind them to start their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win at Everton on Saturday thanks to Jorginho's penalty.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel warned last week that Chelsea were "not ready" for the new season after a gruelling tour of the United States, which included a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal, left his squad drained.

However, a new era at Stamford Bridge is picking up pace off the field with the signings of Marc Cucurella and Carney Chukwuemeka in recent days joining new arrivals Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly.
