Match day : Everton vs Chelsea

Chelsea : A much important win for the Blues here in Goodison Park. Chelsea ended Everton’s unbeaten streak at home this season. Lampard rescued Chelsea after a sloppy start in the first 20 minutes of the game. Not many chances were created from the midfield. David Luiz needs to find some sort of grip to adjust himself in his new position. Luiz and Ramires failed to find the rhythm in their position. A double from Lampard sealed the win against the tough opposition.

Meanwhile,Torres could neither get support from the wings nor from the midfield. Chelsea never linked up their play, yet they came good in their individual positions to resist the Toffees. Good shot-0n-targets were struck by Mata. Though Chelsea took all the 3 points, they should have created many goal scoring opportunities. When the midfield failed to display their presence, Torres could not exhibit his run properly to attack forward. Lampard who is 34 now delivered his two finishes in style with emotions as his contract talks are still yet to be spoken from the Club.

Everton :  Luck God failed to serve the Toffees, three to four chances were denied by the woodworks . The Blues carries their fine form with an early goal from Pienaar. No time the Blues stopped to press the Chelsea and attack them. No flaws they made and they set their pace at the same momentum. Absence of Fellaini who is sidelined after a match ban, is never felt. Leighton Baines, Distin, Heitinga, Phil Jagielka were perfect to deny the oppostion a space to enter the defence.Osman and Pienaar came good. Nikica Jelavic should be unfortunate after his free kick was denied by the woodworks. The Croatian striker looked solid throughout the game. This should be their fine season so far after a early win to the season versus Manchester United.

With this fine form, the Toffees are sure to fight for the fourth spot at the end of the season.
