This time last week, James Milner was doing the exact same thing.
Marcos Alonso scored against Huddersfield to keep Chelsea’s top four hopes alive.
It just happened to be a moment that the wing-back knew literally nothing about.
Just as Milner did last week against Roma, Alonso took one in the face and the ball ended up in the net… only this time it ended up in the right one.
Now for tonight’s calamity…
Cesar Azpilicueta crossed low first time looking for a Blue shirt.
The ball evaded everyone and was met by Huddersfield defender Mathias Jorgensen who tried to clear.
His clearance only went as far as Alonso, who took one in the face without him even knowing.
The ball rolled past a helpless Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.
The face of a very, VERY, lucky man.
The goal means that Chelsea’s battle for a top four spot will go down to the final game of the season.
The Blues need to beat Newcastle and hope that Brighton win at Anfield on Sunday.
Fans can’t believe the similarities with Milner’s goal last week…
