Yes, this fan was wearing a Chelsea jacket to Everton Vs Man United… and this is why

Fair enough


Eagle-eyed viewers of Everton’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United weren’t wrong, one of the crowd really *was* wearing a Chelsea jacket.

The fan in question, as pointed out by The Mirror, is Emily Rogawski, who lives in Liverpool but originates from New York.

Contrary to some of the tweets that suggested she’d got tickets for the wrong game, Emily has since confirmed that her football allegiances do indeed lie with the Stamford Bridge club, despite her appearance at Goodison. She was even at the Etihad yesterday to watch her side record a 3-1 victory over Manchester City.

Having noticed a few tweets knocking around, Emily took to Instagram to make clear that she was a Chelsea fan and also to explain that she’d gone to the game because of her love of football in general.

Unfortunately for Emily, Bastian Schweinsteiger wasn’t able to get on the field having made his first appearance of the season against West Ham in midweek. However, who needs a World Cup-winning German legend when you can sit back and marvel at the kind of late cameo Marouane Fellaini treated Goodison Park to?
