Chelsea started their 2022-23 Premier League campaign with a 1-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

Raheem Sterling had a goal disallowed before Jorginho put Chelsea ahead with a penalty deep into injury time in the first half. A serious injury to Ben Godfrey earlier in the match had caused on eight-minute delay.

In a scrappy second half the best chance fell to Abdoulaye Doucoure, who was denied an equaliser from close range by Edouard Mendy.

Everton will now go on to play Aston Villa on Saturday lunchtime, while Chelsea host Spurs the following day.
