Chelsea won their last Premier League outing against Everton at Stamford Bridge. Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea went into the match on a 10-game unbeaten run, and they broke the deadlock in the first half when Marcos Alonso found Kai Havertz in the box – whose effort was deflected into goal by Ben Godfrey.
Havertz had put the ball in the back of the net once again, only for the goal to be ruled out for handball – but when Mateo Kovacic sent him through on goal minutes later, Havertz was tripped just as he took the ball around Jordan Pickford inside the penalty area.
The touchline camera focusing on the penalty being conceded also picked up Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s reaction, as the young English forward was visibly left frustrated by his goalkeeper. An exasperated Calvert-Lewin apparently went on a foul-mouthed rant filled with expletives as Pickford handed Chelsea with the chance to double their advantage from the spot – Everton’s top scorer in the league this season appeared to have called Pickford “a stupid b-stard” as Chris Kavanagh pointed to the spot.
Jorginho went on to send Pickford the wrong way from 12 yards, as Chelsea had insurance to hold on to – which they successfully did until the full-time whistle was blown.
Calvert-Lewin’s upset reaction went viral on social media following Everton’s loss, as rival fans took the mickey out of the Englishman being so agitated by his teammate from international duty.
At the end of the day, it was Thomas Tuchel’s Blues who extended their unbeaten run to eleven games since the German’s arrival at the West London outfit, while Carlo Ancelotti’s side failed to cover up the gap between them and their opponents – a gap up to four points now.
