September 2023 is not a month that will live long in the memory of Chelsea supporters.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have suffered home defeats to Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest while also drawing with Bournemouth all without scoring a single goal.
There were murmurings on social media about what the club would have to do regarding the Goal of the Month award but those worries have been put to bed as tonight the Blues have finally found the back of the net.
Five minutes into the second half of their EFL Cup clash with Brighton and Hove Albion, Nicolas Jackson swept home from 14 yards out after being played in by Cole Palmer to bag his second for the club.
The wait is over.
