WATCH: This Goodison Park steward is the epitome of determination as he pursues pitch invader

If only Phil Jagielka moved this quick

Mikey Stafford

Right now he is working as a steward at Goodison Park but his dream is to join the Mounties.

He always gets his man.

Three-time European Cup winner Pedro shocked Gary Neville by scoring the kind of goal three-time European Cup winners occasionally score, as Chelsea took a priceless 1-0 lead away to Everton.

The former Barcelona man turned smartly to leave Phil Jagielka in his wake before unleashing an unstoppable 25-yard left-foot thunderbolt into the top corner beyond Maarten Stekelenburg.

Gary Cahill and Willian added two more to seal the victory but, as he wheeled away to celebrate, Pedro did so with the enthusiasm of a man who knew he had all but won Chelsea the title (Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Sunderland are their remaining league fixtures).

So happy was the Spanish international that he embraced a Chelsea fan who encroached on to the pitch to celebrate with his heroes.

The supporter did not have long to savour the moment because, while Pedro and Marcos Alonso seemingly had little issue with his presence, a certain match day steward was not about to let him away with it.

The man in the high-vis came barrelling through the knot of jubilant Chelsea players as he tried to capture his prey, almost flattening Cahill in the process.

If Jagielka had moved that fast there may have been no goal to celebrate.
