Everton held Chelsea to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, a result which came after a fine performance from Marco Silva’s side.
The Toffees have historically struggled in their travels to West London and the fact that Maurizio Sarri’s side are undefeated in competitive matches under his guidance left the odds firmly stacked against Everton heading into the game.
However, the Merseyside outfit performed superbly and while fans are pleased with the performance, many have been unable to hide their fury at one particular incident during the game.
Former Napoli midfielder Jorginho earned a yellow card for a reckless challenge on Gylfi Sigurdsson that left the Iceland international out of his nation’s fixtures in the next two weeks after he left Stamford Bridge in a protective boot.
Some fans have now stated their belief that the Chelsea man was incredibly fortunate not to have been dismissed for the challenge and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
THAT from Jorginho is a RED. Unbelievable #efc

How Jorginho wasn't sent off i'll never know. Not only is the shirt pull a yellow he then takes both feet off the ground, goes two footed, one in front and one behind and gets nowhere near the ball. It's just cynical. #EFC

If Mina’s fair tackle was a yellow then that filthy two footer from Jorginho on Sigurdsson, made because he couldn’t tackle him fairly, is surely a red. #CheEve
