Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has revealed that he was lucky to get on the scoresheet for the Blues against Everton on Wednesday night.
The German centre-back opened the scoring for the Premier League champions against Toffees, heading the ball past Jordan Pickford in an emphatic fashion from a corner kick. The 24-year-old who joined Chelsea last summer from Roma, has been an impressive figure at the Stamford Bridge.
But the defender has admitted that he was fortunate to get the ball into the net as he was unable to see clearly due to the floodlights.
Speaking after the game, Rudigier said he was happy at the opportunity to score and contribute to the Blues’ success but admitted that there was a stroke of luck in the goal as he did not see the ball before putting the ball into the back of the net.
The German also acknowledged the prowess of their opposing side, who also had two to three chances to score while they did well to control the game during the second half of the match.
Antonio Rudigier who look to continue in such emphatic form in subsequent matches as they hope to mount serious title defence after showing signs of weakness in some games so far this season.
