CHELSEA travel to Goodison Park this weekend for a pressure encounter with Everton, who are desperate for points to cling to Premier League status.

So it’s a reunion with Blues legend Frank Lampard who, for the first time in his long association with Stamford Bridge, will be doing his darnedest to defeat his former club.

Games are coming thick and fast for Thomas Tuchel, who managed to eke out a 1-0 win against West Ham last weekend, with just 24 seconds of normal time remaining.

David Moyes had rested a host of his key players ahead of the two-headed Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

But the stars gradually came on in the second half, and Tuchel responded with a triple change of his own to try to end the goalless stalemate.

All the drama came in the final five minutes. Romelu Lukaku was fouled by Craig Dawson and (after ref Michael Oliver had consulted VAR) Chelsea had a penalty as Dawson trudged off to the shower.

But the normally reliable Jorginho conjured up the most pathetic spot kick of his career, and it remained 0-0 as we entered the final minute.

Then Marcos Alonso, the butt of Irons fans’ abuse for the whole game, crossed for sub Christian Pulisic to convert past Lukasz Fabianski, who was still bouncing up and down after saving the pen.

The Blues avoided any risky play during the four minutes of added time, and victory was theirs, making the situation at the top of the table a little brighter after the defeat at the Bridge to Arsenal in midweek.

The visit to Frank Lampard and his perilously placed Everton team at Goodison Park promises to be a tense affair.
