Chelsea got a 3-1 win over Leeds United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night, as the Blues rose to the occasion despite having fallen behind to Leeds.
Patrick Bamford had scored a fourth minute goal to put Leeds in front before an Olivier Giroud goal made it 1-1 before half-time.
Kurt Zouma thundered in a fine header from a corner-kick to put Chelsea ahead before Christian Pulisic scored a late goal to seal a 3-1 victory.
The scores could have been different if Ian Poveda had gone down in the penalty box. The young midfielder was caught by Ben Chilwell in the penalty box, but he managed to stay on his feet, much to the dismay of Leeds fans.
Had Poveda fallen to the ground, it would have been a definite penalty, and many have blamed the player for his decision.
Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy was also critical of Poveda’s decision to stay on his feet.
“I agree with some people who say he’s stupid,” he told Match of the Day. “He’s cost his team a point because he knows if he goes down, it’s a definite penalty with the rules being the way they are.”
The incident happened with the scores 2-1, and Chilwell was lucky that Poveda decided to stay on his feet.
