Chelsea are well and truly back on track with a 2-1 win against Everton on Tuesday night.

The Blues had flopped to defeats against Manchester City and Crystal Palace either side of the international break before capitulating against AS Roma in the Champions League.

However, Antonio Conte's men built upon their dramatic victory against Watford at the weekend with progression to the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup.

It wasn't an easy ride, though. Chelsea entered half-time with a slender 1-0 lead virtue of Antonio Rudiger's header with the Toffees keeping Willy Caballero on his toes.

The game endured as a tight affair until injury time when the second goal finally arrived, thanks to the much maligned Willian.

Everton then bagged the goal they deserved just two minutes later with Dominic Calvert-Lewin chipping with a consolation strike.

Chelsea could have killed off the game much earlier, though, when Michy Batshuayi was presented with the mother of all opportunities after a misplaced back pass.

In accordance with his impressive form this season, the Belgian rounded Jordan Pickford with effortless ease before racing towards the open goal.

Phil Jagielka had other ideas and showed remarkable pace to intervene, however.

The ex-England international somehow managed to tackle Batshuayi in the goal mouth, diverting the ball out for a corner and sending his adversary flying into the post.

Check out the crazy incident below:

It's not quite Phil Babb but you've got to feel for Batshuayi. The forward eventually pulled himself up for the ensuing Chelsea corner yet was eventually substituted in favour Alvaro Morata.

Supporters were, unsurprisingly,  bewildered by one of the weirdest injuries you'll see all season and rushed to Twitter.

After the game, the man himself even chipped in. Take a look at the pick of the tweets:
