Frank Lampard has declared the penalty-taking debate at Chelsea to be over, with Jorginho handed the responsibility after converting in a 2-0 win over Brighton.Questions had been asked at Stamford Bridge over recent weeks as to who should be stepping up from 12 yards.Jorginho has always been a favoured choice, but Ross Barkley snatched the ball off him in a Champions League clash with Valencia.

Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career The England international fluffed his lines, but stated afterwards: “When I’m on the pitch, I’ll take the penalty.”Obviously I didn’t execute it right but everybody misses penalties. I didn’t score the goal but I felt confident.“If there was another penalty in the game, I would have been confident to take the pen. You can miss penalties.”While Barkley believed that he was still the main man, it was Pedro who stepped up during a Carabao Cup clash with Grimsby.He found the back of the net, but slipped down the pecking order against Brighton as Jorginho took charge once more.The Italy international never looked like missing and is now the go-to man for the Blues.“Yes he is, end of story,” Lampard said when quizzed on the issue.The Blues boss was then pressed further on his decision and added: “I knew you’d ask me that question again. I’m surprised about the obsession with penalty takers.“Jorginho took it and he scored. He’s a penalty taker.”Jorginho impressed against Brighton in the middle of the park, with Chelsea preserving their faultless league record against the Seagulls.He did not have France international N’Golo Kante alongside him, with Lampard opting not to take a risk on the fitness of the World Cup winner after seeing him carry a few niggling knocks since the summer.Lampard said of Kante: “It’s an awareness, I didn’t want to take a risk.“I spoke to N’Golo about it and he’s so important for us. We know that.“He’s had a difficult pre-season. It’s been difficult for us but mainly for him because of the break-up of his pre-season, with the injury carrying over from last year.“It wasn’t right to risk him. He could have a chance for Lille.”Chelsea will return to Champions League action on Wednesday before heading into the next international break on the back of a Premier League trip to Southampton.

We pulled up a stool to the bar at Xiao Bao Biscuit in Charleston’s hip Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood and spoke with co-owner and bartender, Joey Ryan to hear his favorite.As Ryan explains to us:Like with many of the [cocktails] I’ve made over the years, it started with a conversation with a guest. There was a great couple sitting at the bar, I was walking them through the menu, the cocktails on the list that pair with specific dishes, and we got to talking about what each of them liked. After making one of the cocktails on the list for the gentleman, the woman told me she liked spicier cocktails, but wanted to stick to Bourbon. I asked her about Campari, she told me she was game for anything. I made the cocktail, and thankfully she loved it, and asked what it was called. I asked her what she was called, her reply, Petra.The key ingredient that gives it some kick? Honey that has been infused with Thai chilis for one day. Yes, we already have a quart infused in our kitchen too.

Every so often, I get hit with this wave of overwhelming emotion and I get quite emotional when I think that this is really happening to me.”If it hadn’t been for the school being so supportive at the beginning and letting me go and film Bake Off, I wouldn’t be here now.”Brown said that children at her school were surprised to see her back after viewers saw her win the series in October – the last before the show moves to Channel 4 – because they thought that she was now a millionaire.”They asked me why I was back after the final as I was now a millionaire. I explained to them that I hadn’t won a million but, in fact, a cake stand!”Leaving on Friday was emotional but I am excited about the future now, scared, too, and I am a bit of a worrier. But I cannot thank everybody enough for giving me this amazing opportunity and for my school letting me grab it with both hands and running with it.”I am a very lucky person.” Brown added: “It was so incredibly lovely of him to say this.”She said that it was very emotional saying a fond farewell to her pupils and fellow staff at the end of last week.”I will miss them so much,” she said. “I work in special needs and you are fighting the children’s corner so much. But I have had long conversations with my parents and my boyfriend, Liam, and I know it is the right decision.”I can’t thank the school enough, especially my head of department, Elly, who has been amazing, and I feel so grateful for the fact they have been so supportive. I keep thanking them all the time! It’s such a great new chapter for me.”She plans to take her time to map her future but Brown, who has signed up with a team of TV agents, says that she keeps pinching herself since winning the BBC1 show. “At first, I kept telling the school I would stay until December but they were so incredible and told me I had to grab everything whilst I could.”Brown said her school suggested she leave now, rather than at the end of this year, and that doing so would inspire the school’s pupils to follow their dreams.The Bake Off winner said: “My headteacher told me: ‘You’ve got to do this, you can’t do it half-heartedly. I wouldn’t forgive myself if you missed out.”It’s not that we don’t want you here but you have to give it 100%. If we can’t encourage our staff to follow their dreams and inspire, then we are not doing our job properly. You are showing the kids that anything is possible.”‘ Credit:Ken McKay /ITV / Rex / Shutterstock Candice Brown triumphed in this year’s final Credit:Mark Bourdillon/BBC / Love Productions Brown said she had discovered over the past few weeks that trying to juggle her day job – which involves working with children with special needs – with new commitments was too difficult.But Brown, who also teaches PE, said she could not have made the jump had it not been for the support of staff at Ashlyns School in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. Her last day at the secondary school was on Friday.She said: “This has been such an agonising decision to make. Never in a million years did I ever go into the show thinking this would happen. That is why I have been back at school teaching since I won the final. “I have been teaching for about eight years now and I love it. But since winning the final, I have also been completely bowled over by the amazing opportunities that I have been offered. The winner of The Great British Bake Off Candice Brown has quit her job as a PE teacher to pursue the “amazing opportunities” she has been offered since the series.The 31-year-old, who beat Jane Beedle and Andrew Smyth in the final, shocked pupils when she returned to her post.But she has now made the “agonising” decision to put her job as a teacher on hold to pursue a career in baking.
