Sunderland vs. Chelsea Highlights
   April 19, 2014 (2:16 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Jozy Altidore came off the bench and help draw the PK which led to the game-winning goal in Sunderland’s 2-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.  The loss was only Jose Mourinho’s third ever at Stamford Bridge in 116 total games as Chelsea’s manager and his first ever at Stamford Bridge in Premier League play in 78 games.

    Looks like the trailing leg sweeps Jozy’s left foot(in the GIF) but the picture makes it look like the trailing leg is past while Jozy’s leg is still in contact with the ground? I guess I will have to wait until I get home.

    It was a borderline PK. Either way, Jose took it to the hole then starting thinking too much. A quick pass or shot should have been his choice, but he’s still not there.

    Would have been a difficult shot to put in from there (maybe one he should be able to score, but he’s on bad form so whatever). The only pass that was on would have been played with his final touch, on the floor to the far post, but that would have been very difficult to get past azpilicueta/terry/swarzer with enough finesse for his man to run on to. If he shoots or passes, 9 out of 10 times the result is no goal. He beat a great fullback in the open field and then drew a penalty, nothing wrong with it.
    I reckon he was trying to draw the penalty. If he wanted to elude azpilicueta, using the bottom of his foot would have been appropriate, but he uses the outside, taking it away from goal. This means he’s putting his legs out to the left (where the challenge is coming in) in order to push away to the right. If there was no contact, and there nearly wasn’t, he would have been in a pickle. It was either a mental lapse that turned fruitful or a pretty suave maneuver. Imo the latter.

    He played it fairly well there, but he did disappoint when he did not take the shot near the end of regulation and instead passed it backwards. He could have put the game out of reach, but I think Altidore is playing scared. :-(
