Everton 3-6 Chelsea – Premier League – 30th August 2014


The Blues of Merseyside and the Blues of west London produced a veritable goal-fest at Goodison Park on Saturday with Chelsea keeping alive their 100% start to the new Premier League season.

The visitors were 2-0 up within three minutes, courtesy of goals from Diego Costa and Branislav Ivanovic however Kevin Mirallas headed home on 45 minutes to get the Toffees back into the game. However, with neither defence functioning properly, more goals were to follow, with a Seamus Coleman own-goal giving the Blues a 3-1 lead.

Steven Naismith then stroked home superbly before Chelsea’s midfield lynchpin Nemanja Matic then fired past Tim Howard to make it 4-2. And there was still time to ex-Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o to score on his debut for Everton before Ramires and the Diego Costa, with his second of the game, finished off the scoring to give Jose Mourino and co. a 6-3 win that keeps them top of the table.

Lots of great attacking here but both managers will be somewhat concerned by the leakiness of their respective defences.

    really enjoyable game to watch, but concerned about our (chelsea’s) leaky defense; two of those goals were poor to allow. also, tim howard is a fortunate fella to not get sent off – grabbing the ball clearly outside the box with hazard streaking towards him (yellow #1) and then his hissy fit after the OG when he went (literally) head to head with Dave (yellow #2). everton shipping 10 goals in 3 should really concern RM as well.

  2. Holland 1945 says:

    Our attacking play is brilliant, but our defensive play is Sunday league level. Scoring 3 against Chelsea is no mean feat, and we could have more, but they were scoring against us at will. There was no pressing to be seen, just players standing off until the ball had to be picked up out of the net.

    Martinez needs to sort it out quickly, as this ridiculous defending has left us with 2 points from 3 games, despite us scoring the 2nd most goals in he division. Jagielka has been a shambles; surely John Stones must get a go now?
