Jorginho’s double and Romelu Lukaku’s goal helped Chelsea bounce back from an English Premier League (EPL) match to beat Aston Villa by a 3-1 match score. Chelsea’s star striker Lukaku scored a goal after 106 days. He did not play for a long time due to an ankle injury, scoring his first goal since September in the EPL.
Romelu Lukaku, who came in as a substitute player, scored the goal in the 56th minute of the football match. Jorginho scored in the 34th and 90+3 minutes. Reece James scored a suicide goal in the 28th minute to give Aston Villa the lead. However, this lead lasted only six minutes and Chelsea beat Aston Villa. Jorginho has scored six goals in six matches and nine goals in the season.
This is Chelsea’s 12th win in 19 matches this season. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Chelsea have the same 41 points and are placed second and third in the Premier League table respectively. However, on the basis of goal difference, Liverpool’s team is second and Chelsea is at number three. Manchester City is on top with 47 points from 15 wins.
