Glen Johnson – Blackburn Rovers vs. CHELSEA (February 2004)

Chelsea travelled to Ewood Park in February 2004 looking to keep tabs on the pace being set by unbeaten Arsenal and reigning champions Manchester United. They looked set to drop points when Paul Gallagher equalised for Blackburn to make the score 2-2 with five minutes left to go. Time was running out when Chelsea won a corner.

It was actually a poor corner from Adrian Mutu but John Terry didn’t give up on it and managed to keep the ball alive. He found Glen Johnson, whose control in the air was too much for Markus Babbel. He then nicked the ball past Garry Flitcroft before lashing a shot into the top corner of the net past Brad Friedel.

Chelsea won 3-2 and this was the best of Johnson’s four goals he managed in a Chelsea shirt.
