Chelsea vs Everton

Chelsea will have a fully-fit squad to choose from with only Eden Hazard the doubtful one. Davy Klaassen is out for Everrton, as is Ross Barkley. Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended for the red card in Monday's 1-1 draw at Manchester City. The Blues lost to Burnley on the opening weekend, and will be trying not to lose back-to-back home EPL matches since November 2011. Wayne Rooney has scored both of Everton's league goals thus far, and will be aiming to score in three consecutive EPL matches for the first in 19 months. Curiously, the Toffees have only lost one of their last 11 EPL matches to Chelsea (W6 D4).


Match Stats:

  • Chelsea 2-0 Everton
  • Shots: 18-7
  • Possession: 57%-43%
  • Corner kicks: 6-3

First-half goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea their second successive Premier League victory, as they won 2-0 against Everton.

After exchanging the ball with Morata just inside the penalty area, Fabregas brilliantly found the far corner with a strike off the outside of his boot on 27 minutes.

Morata then netted his second Premier League goal in as many home matches when he headed in Cesar Azpilicueta's cross before half-time.

Ashley Williams and Idrissa Gueye went close as Everton pushed for a way back into the match, but Antonio Conte's side held on, giving the champions six points from three PL matches this term.
