Chelsea 4-0 Everton: Kepa makes a return and Blues run riot as they go 2 pts behind 3rd-placed Leicester
2019/2020 Premier League
4 – 0
GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Everton (Mount)
A smart finish from Mount gives Chelsea a deserved early lead. Pedro cuts inside from the left and feeds the ball into the feet of Mount, who swivels just inside the box and picks out the one bit of the net Pickford is unable to reach. There were 20 passes in the build-up to the goal.
GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Everton (Pedro)
CHELSEA 2-0 EVERTON!!! Pedro doubles Chelsea’s lead with another well-worked goal. Barkley slots the ball through the middle and Pedro reacts quicker than Sidibe and Keane to race through on goal. When one-on-one with Pickford he calmly picks his spot.
Missed! Calvert-Lewin’s shot wide out
HUGE CHANCE FOR EVERTON! Zouma gifts possession to Richarlison and he plays in strike partner Calvert-Lewin, who has just Kepa to beat. He does not connect properly with the shot, however, and the ball trickles wide of the far post.
GOAL! Chelsea 3-0 Everton (Willian)
Willian whistles in a third for Chelsea early in the second half. Twenty yards from goal, no Everton player closes the Brazil international down and he fizzes one into the bottom-left corner.
GOAL! Chelsea 4-0 Everton (Giroud)
Giroud adds his name to the scoresheet! The France international sticks out a leg four yards from goal to divert Willian’s cross past a rooted Pickford
CLOSE! Pedro’s powerful strike stopped by Pickford
PICKFORD DENIES PEDRO! Willian’s cross is dummied by Barkley and Pedro gets a clean shot on goal, which Pickford does well to keep out. That came shortly after Kepa kept out Richarlison’s powerful shot at the other end.
Kepa makes a decent save
Pedro accidentally fouls Richarlison, meaning a free-kick for Everton in a good crossing position. Digne floats it in and it eventually drops for Sigurdsson to strike, but the shot is blocked. Kepa then bravely claims the ball before Kean can convert Walcott’s cross.
