It was a dream start for Duncan Ferguson’s Everton. Less than five minutes on the clock, Richarlison gave the home side the lead with the header for his fourth goal in five games.
The Brazilian’s third goal in as many games handed the hosts the lead in Duncan Ferguson’s first match in charge.
49 Calvert-lewin converts to make it 2-0. Christensen got himself in a tangle failing to clear a cross into the box. Zouma couldn’t help his team-mate losing out to the Everton forward in a 50/50 battle.
Calvert-Lewin takes one touch to take it away from the defender before slottiing his effort low into the net.
52 minutes on, Kovacic got Chelsea back into the game. Pulisic made a driving run down the left flank, but his cross evades Abraham and Willian in the box.
Digne clears as far as the midfielder 20 yards from goal and he connects with a sharp volley on his left foot. It travels towards the bottom-left corner past Abraham – who is onside – and it beats the dive of Pickford to find the net.
Kepa handed possession straight to Walcott, who released his team-mate in the box. Calvert-Lewin backheels towards Davies to keep the attack alive, but Kante makes a good challenge.
He prods it towards goal through the legs of Kepa and into the back of the net.
