Chelsea defeated Everton 3-0 at the much talked about Goodison Park. Goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill and Willian sealed the victory for Chelsea.

Eden Hazard was man-marked by Idrissa Gueye all through the game, but the Belgian still found space to have five successful take-ons. Surprisingly, Nemanja Matic had the most take-ons in the game with six.

Matic and Diego Costa created two chances each, and Matic showed his worth defensively with 10 ball recoveries, along with Azpilicueta the highest figure recorded.

Azpilicueta was successful with six interceptions, at least two more than anyone else.

Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta and sub Nathan Ake ensured Romelu Lukaku only won three of his eleven aerial contests.

Cesc Fabregas who assisted Willian’s goal, has now had a hand in nine goals in his last eight games against the Toffees in the Premier League (four goals, five assists).
