Everton clinched a huge 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park and won all three points in their relegation battle.

Richarlison’s second-half goal was enough to seal victory and claim all three points against Chelsea. Chelsea dominated ball possession and created many chances, but Everton’s defence was in top form. 

Despite having more ball possession, Chelsea were not able to find the net against Everton. Both teams went into the first half goalless. Everton also had an early chance, but from a set piece, but Gordon didn’t manage to keep his effort on target.

Soon after the restart in the 46th minute, Richarlison scored an important goal for the Toffees. Azpilicueta makes a mistake on the edge of his own box, he stays in possession for too long, and Richarlison deposes him.

However, the game was not over since Chelsea had over 44 minutes of regular time plus additional time. But Pickford made some important saves to deny Azpilicueta, Rudiger and Kovacic. 

After this victory, Everton remain in 18th place in the league table, two points behind seventeenth-placed Leeds United. Everton also have a game in hand. Meanwhile, after this defeat, Chelsea remained in third place, and now they are just three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
