First half ended all square at the Bridge though the Blues should have been ahead comfortably as Tammy Abraham struck the post, while Marcos Alonso missed a sitter from close range.
50th minute, Jorginho converts from spot kick to give the Blues a well deserved lead after Mount put the pressure on Webster and forced the mistake from the defender with a short backpass. He sticks out a leg to bring down the midfielder, leaving the referee to point to the penalty spot.
Jorginho stepped up, holds his nerve from 12 yards, go for the staggered run-up and then placed his effort into the left bottom corner. Ryan was fooled and was rooted to the spot.
76 minutes on, Hudson-Odoi released Willian down the right and the Brazilian does the rest with the aid of a deflection off the leg of the defender to wrong foot Ryan and find the net.
Chelsea responded to back-to-back defeats with an emphatic 7-1 win over Grimsby in the EFL Cup during the week to seal their place in the fourth round of the competition.
The Blues suffered losses to Valencia in the Champions League then Liverpool in the Premier League so a victory was needed to stem the tide.
Frank Lampard’s men have been solid, but are in need of a consistent run in the league to move up the table and they did not disappoint their fans.
