FANS are all in agreement after seeing Jorginho CHANGE his trademark penalty routine.
The Chelsea star, 30, stepped up from the spot to cooly slot the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and put the Blues 1-0 up.
However, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the midfielder ditched his hop, skip and a jump and instead just side-footed the ball into the bottom corner.
Famously, Pickford saved a Jorginho in the Euro 2020 final for England against Italy.
That time, the playmaker did take is spot-kick the usual way.

One fan wrote: “Jorginho outwitting Pickford by going straight for the bottom corner instead of the hop, skip, jump, learnt from the Euros final you love to see it.
One tweeted: “Jorginho didn’t hop for the first time in years, Pickford dealt with this man in Euro, he didn’t want to take chances.”
And another penned: “No more skip-hop-shoot style for Jorginho‘s pens. It seems someone has finally learnt his lesson. Or maybe not; we’ll see how he does the next one that comes his way.”
After his penalty miss against England, Jorginho missed TWO penalties in the World Cup qualifying stages against Switzerland, which cost his country a place in Qatar.
