Chelsea 0-1 Wimbledon What a journey from the Madueke penalty to Chelsea. Noni Madueke had been the most impressive player on the field in the first half.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, the winger has had annoying minor ailments that have limited his game time, but he finally got a start today and made the most of it.
Madueke has been a persistent menace in a generally disappointing first half for the Blues. Just before halftime, he made his most crucial contribution. Taking the ball and performing a spectacular turn, the winger attacked the box and was scythed down.
He took the penalty calmly, waited for the goalie to leave before striking the ball the other way. Thank goodness someone on this team is taking chances; the rest of the team cycled.
