Chelsea 2-1 Everton – Premier League – 19th May 2013

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Chelsea v Everton - Stamford Bridge

Rafa Benitez’s eventful reign as Chelsea’s ‘interim’ boss finished at Stamford Bridge with a win which saw the Blues secure automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Juan Mata opened the scoring early on, only for Steven Naismaith the level the scores soon after. However, after the break Fernando Torres netted the winner to give the home side a deserved win.

As well as being Rafa’s last game, this fixture also saw David Moyes end his Everton days, with Old Trafford awaiting the Scottish tactician. I wonder where Rafa will turn up next?
