Jorginho scored two penalties as Chelsea rescued a late dramatic 3-2 win against Leeds United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Raphinha scored a first half penalty to give Marcelo Bielsa’s side an early lead but a Mason Mount strike and a Jorginho spot-kick appeared to have given Chelsea the victory. Joe Gelhardt struck late on to bring the sides level, before Jorginho’s late penalty.

It was an important win for Chelsea and their title hopes after they lost to West Ham United and drew with Manchester United recently.

Marcos Alonso gave away a penalty with a poor tackle on 28 minutes which Raphina slotted home to give Leeds the lead.

However, Leeds’ Ilan Meslier was caught out of position on 42 minutes allowing Mount to capitalise on an Alonso cross to bring the sides level.

Raphina turned from hero to villain when he fouled Antonio Rudiger to give away a spot-kick which was converted by Jorginho on 58 minutes.

Substitute Gelhardt then scored to bring the sides level with his first touch but the drama for the day wasn’t finished and Chelsea were awarded a penalty three minutes into added time with Jorginho slotting home once again.
