In the 21st minute of tonight’s Premier League tie between Chelsea and Brighton, the Seagulls gifted the Blues a penalty after losing the ball due to a shaky mistake in their own defensive third.
New signing Timo Werner bagged what many will consider as his first competitive assist for Frank Lampard’s side after he was brought down after rounding Brighton stopper Mathew Ryan.
Specialist Jorginho stepped up to the plate and used his trademark hop-skip penalty technique to send Ryan the wrong way by tucking the ball into the bottom corner.
Take a look at the incident leading to the spot-kick and Jorginho’s strike below:
Should he have been sent off?
