    • 90'
      Funes Mori embarks on a marauding run forward and into the Chelsea half of the pitch, but his determined attack is brought to a painful end by Costa, who brings down the debutant with a cynical challenge and is shown a yellow card as a result.
    • 45'
      Lukaku spins past Zouma before teeing up Naismith, who then breaks into the left-hand side of the penalty area. He battles with Ivanovic before sending a lovely cross onto the head of Coleman, but the right-back's effort ends up looping well wide of its intended target.
    • 90'

      Everton are comfortably able to hold on to pick up their first home league victory since April, whilst Chelsea limp off the pitch knowing that another disappointing defeat means that they have now suffered their worst start to the season since 1988.

      It's been another disappointing 45 minutes for Chelsea, who have looked poor defensively and, as a result, head into the half-time break a goal down and with a big job to do in the second half. Everton have been allowed far too much space in the visitors' half of the pitch, and they have taken advan

      As for Chelsea, their chances of returning to winning ways were given a huge blow on Wednesday when goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was ruled out for three months with a knee injury, whilst Oscar, who hasn’t featured for the Blues since the opening day of the season, is still out after picking up a knoc

      After a lengthy and, at times, heated transfer saga involving John Stones, the focus will surely be on the young centre-back as he comes up against the side that were so desperate to sign him. New Everton signings Aaron Lennon and Ramiro Funes Mori may feature alongside him at some point, but Robert

      After struggling last season, Everton have started this campaign in a far more positive manner thanks to a comfortable win away to Southampton and a hard-earned goalless draw against Tottenham Hotspur. They will be aiming to take advantage of Chelsea’s lack of confidence by picking up all three poin

    • 1'
      And we're off! Everton get us underway, attacking from right to left.
    • 2'
      Hazard lifts a nice chip over the head of Besic and into the path of Ivanovic, who is in plenty of space down the right flank. The defender bursts forward before sending a bouncing cross into the middle of the penalty area. It's placed too near to Howard, however, and is easily collected by the goal
    • 3'
      Costa and Stones battle against one another on the left-hand side of the Everton penalty area before the former nutmegs the latter, but the young centre-back eventually comes out on top after out-muscling the Spaniard, resulting in a roar of approval from the home fans.
    • 4'
      Everton break away quickly, with Besic flying down the left wing before cutting into the penalty area. He tries to find a way past Zouma but is unable to do so, resulting in him firing a low cross off the centre-back and out for a corner.
    • 5'
      The resulting set-piece is taken short before Barkley sends a looping cross into the heart of the Chelsea penalty area. Lukaku jumps high to reach the ball but is beaten to it by Begovic, who collects the attempted pass before being clattered into by the Belgian.
    • 6'
      Chelsea work the ball around quickly as they look to find a way into the Everton box, but Ivanovic is eventually dispossessed by Galloway near the corner flag on the right wing.
    • 7'
      The visitors quickly win the ball back before trying to work their way into the penalty area from the opposite flank, but Azpilicueta runs out of room at the last moment and ends up sending the ball out for a goal kick, bringing a long attacking move to an end.
    • 9'
      SI S. Naismith SO M. Bešić
    • 9'
      Besic seems to have picked up a nasty-looking hamstring injury, forcing him into being withdrawn for Naismith.
    • 10'
      Again, Ivanovic and Galloway battle against one another down the right wing before the Serbian fires a cross off the youngster and out for a corner. Pedro sends the resulting set-piece towards the near post but it's easily cleared by a diving header from McCarthy.
    • 11'
      Chelsea keep the attacking move alive and quickly send the ball back into the middle of the box, but Zouma is unable to direct his headed effort towards goal and it ends up bouncing well wide of the far post.
    • 12'
      Coleman and McCarthy link up well on the right wing before the latter sends a lovely curling cross towards the back post. It almost meets Naismith but ends up flying just inches over the top of his head and out of play for a goal kick.
    • 14'
      Naismith dispossesses Pedro, and Everton immediately break away on a quick counter attack. They work the ball around well before Galloway tries to skip past Ivanovic, but the Serbian comes out on top and dispossesses the youngster with a well-timed tackle.
    • 16'
      Everton lose possession near the halfway line, allowing Hazard to pick up the ball and immediately send a great pass into the path of Costa. The striker ploughs forward before looking to shoot, but just before he's able to do so he's dispossessed by a great tackle from Jagielka.

      GOAL! Everton have taken the lead! Galloway is left in acres of space on the left-hand side of the penalty area, allowing him to pick up the ball comfortably before chipping a beautiful cross right onto the head of Naismith, who flies past Zouma before beating Begovic with a bullet header from close
    • 19'
      What a save by Begovic! Everton come forward once again, this time through Coleman down the right wing. He skips past Azpilicueta before curling a lovely cross right onto the head of Kone, who then forces the Chelsea goalkeeper into making a great diving stop.
    • 20'
      And now McCarthy goes close! The hosts take the resulting corner quickly and work it over to the Irishman, who then unleashes a thumping strike from 30 yards out that Begovic is just about able to parry away from danger with another great save.

    • 24'
      Chelsea push forward on a determined attack from the restart, quickly working the ball around down the left flank. Pedro eventually cuts inside and decides to shoot from 25 yards out, but his strike is scuffed and, as a result, ends up trickling well wide of the near post.
    • 25'
      Matic picks up the ball in space just inside the Everton half of the pitch and immediately tries to find Fabregas with a long-range through-ball, but the defensive midfielder's pass is poorly executed and misses the Spaniard before finding the hands of Howard.
    • 26'
      Great chance for Azpilicueta! The left-back takes advantage of poor defending from Kone to break into the penalty area, but his thumping strike is pushed out for a corner by Howard.
    • 27'
      The first corner results in a second, but Matic's cross is easily dealt with by Barry, allowing Everton to break away on a blisteringly quick counter attack.
    • 28'
      Excellent play by Lukaku! The Belgian muscles his way into the left-hand side of the Chelsea penalty area before reaching the byline, where he fizzes a dangerous low pass across the face of goal. It fails to find a blue shirt, however, and is thumped away by Mikel.
    • 29'
      Hazard is brought down from behind by Jagielka, resulting in a free kick for Chelsea. They take it quickly and work it to Ivanovic, but the Serbian keeps hold of the ball for too long and, as a result, is easily dispossessed by Galloway before he can shoot.
    • 30'
      The two sides battle for the ball on the edge of the penalty area before Fabregas is just able to toe-poke a pass through to Pedro. The latter breaks into the box and tries to reach the ball but Stones is there to deal with the danger before the Spaniard can do so.
    • 32'
      Matic sends a lovely cross-field pass over the top of the Everton defence and into the path of Costa, who finds himself in space on the left wing. The striker brings the ball down well but can't beat Coleman, who puts in a strong tackle on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 33'
      A low Ivanovic cross is deflected out of play for a corner, which Fabregas curls into the heart of the penalty area. It's well hit but Kone jumps high to deal with the danger.
    • 35'
      Everton work the ball around nicely before McCarthy tries to fire in a cross from the right flank. It's well hit but strikes the arm of Azpilicueta, resulting in the home fans screaming for a free kick. The referee ignores their pleas, however, and play resumes with Chelsea in possession.
    • 36'
      G N. Matić Assist M. Bešić
    • 36'
      J. Obi Mikel gave the assist.
    • 36'
      GOAL! What a strike by Matic! The defensive midfielder is left in space in the middle of the pitch, and he takes everybody by surprise by firing a rocket of a shot from 35 yards out that flies past the outstretched arms of Howard into the top left-hand corner of the net. That was an absolute screame
    • 37'
      McCarthy breaks down the right wing before cutting inside and sending a deep cross towards Barkley, but Begovic does well to rush out before cutting out the danger with a strong save.
    • 38'
      And now Hazard goes close! Costa holds up the ball well on the left flank before teeing up the aforementioned Belgian, who flies into the penalty area before firing a low strike that is deflected just wide of the near post and out for a corner.
    • 39'
      Terry almost equalises! The first corner is cleared out of play for a second, which Chelsea decide to take short. They send the ball to Hazard, who twists and turns before cutting a chipped cross right onto the head of the captain, but his bullet effort flies just a few inches over the top of the cr
    • 40'

    • 41'
      Matic unleashes another thumping long-range strike from a similar area of the pitch, but this time it's deflected out of play by Barry, who quickly closes down the Serbian to deny him the opportunity to make it 2-2.
    • 42'
      Costa receives the ball with his back to goal, and he spins round Stones before firing a fierce strike. It's well hit but the aforementioned Everton centre-back does well to stick out a foot that sends the effort looping over the top of the crossbar and out for a corner.
    • 43'
      The first corner is dealt with by Jagielka, whilst the second bounces out of the box and into the path of Hazard. The Belgian immediately unleashes a dangerous low shot that flies through the Everton defence and onto the foot of Ivanovic, who can only deflect the strike a yard or two wide of the far
    • 44'
      Everton patiently work the ball around midway inside the Chelsea half of the pitch before Barry tries to find Kone with a chipped lofted pass, but it's slightly overhit and misses the Ivorian before bouncing out of play for a goal kick.
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be two minutes of added time.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 48'
      Hazard and Fabregas patiently work their way down the left wing before the latter swings a cross towards Costa, but it fails to find the striker and is comfortably cut out by McCarthy midway inside the Everton penalty area.
    • 50'
      Again, Hazard tries to find an opening down the left flank, but once more McCarthy does well to close down the Belgian before winning the ball back for the hosts on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 52'
      A long Ivanovic throw-in bounces out of the Everton box and into the path of Zouma, who immediately unleashes a low shot. It fails to beat Jagielka, however, and bounces off the centre-back and away from danger.
    • 54'
      Chelsea lose the ball deep inside the Everton half of the pitch, allowing the hosts to break away on a quick counter attack. Naismith immediately tries to find Lukaku with a lofted pass forward, but it's slightly mishit and misses the Belgian before bouncing out for a throw-in.
    • 55'
      SI Kenedy SO M. Bešić
    • 55'
      Chelsea have decided to make their first substitution of the game, and it's an attacking one, with Mikel making way for Kenedy.
    • 55'
      Coleman flies down the right wing before battling with Terry, who does well to deflect the Irishman's low cross out for a corner. Barkley's curling cross finds the head of Stones, but the defender's looping header flies well over the top of the crossbar.
    • 57'
      Barkley picks up the ball in acres of space just outside of the Chelsea penalty area and immediately tries to twist and turn his way into the box. He makes it past two players but is finally dispossessed by Matic before he can get a shot away.
    • 59'
      Controversy inside the Chelsea penalty area! Lukaku flies into the left-hand side of the box before unleashing a low strike that Begovic does well to parry away. Terry then clearly toe-pokes the ball into the hands of the goalkeeper but, despite the pleas from the Everton players and fans, the refer
    • 61'
      Chelsea work the ball around well before Pedro tees up Kenedy on the left flank, but the young Brazilian's attempted pass back towards the aforementioned Spaniard is completely scuffed and bounces harmlessly out of play for a goal kick.
    • 62'
      Lukaku and Terry battle against one another once again, this time near the byline in the right-hand side of the penalty area. With no blue shirts to aim for, the Belgian decides to shoot from a tight angle, but his audacious effort ends up flying into the side-netting.
    • 64'
      And now it's Kone who tries to test Begovic after finding himself in space on the left-hand side of the box, but his thumping strike is sent straight into the hands of the Chelsea goalkeeper.
    • 65'
      Galloway catches Pedro late as Chelsea try to break away quickly, and, after the attacking move comes to an end, the referee shows the youngster the first yellow card of the game.
    • 66'
      Chelsea earn themselves a corner, which is sent deep towards Pedro. The Spaniard tries to spin past Naismith before diving to the ground, but the referee is unimpressed and instead awards a free kick to Everton just inside their own penalty area.
    • 68'
      A determined run from Naismith results in an Everton corner on the left wing. It's whipped towards the near post by Barkley but is slightly underhit and, as a result, Costa easily clears the danger.
    • 69'
      Everton come back quickly, with Lukaku skipping past Azpilicueta before forcing Begovic into making an important save with a low strike from the edge of the penalty area. The ball goes out for a corner, but, again, Chelsea comfortably deal with the danger.

    • 70'
      Chelsea have made their second change of the afternoon, with Pedro making way for Falcao.
    • 71'
      Chelsea break away quickly, with Ivanovic flying forward before teeing up Costa. The striker is in acres of space on the left-hand side of the penalty area but he holds onto the ball for far too long and, as a result, is eventually dispossessed by Jagielka before he's able to unleash a shot.
    • 72'
      SI A. Lennon SO M. Bešić
    • 72'
      Kone makes his way off the pitch to be replaced by Lennon, who comes on to make his first start for Everton since rejoining the club from Tottenham.
    • 72'
      And now Lukaku goes close! The Belgian flies down the left wing before firing a cross-cum-shot towards the far post, but it flies past both Kone and the goal before going out of play for a goal kick.
    • 73'
      Everton work the ball around nicely before Coleman curls in a deep cross from the right wing, but it's completely overhit and misses Lukaku before bouncing out of play for a throw-in on the opposite flank.
    • 74'
      SI Willian SO M. Bešić
    • 74'
      And now Chelsea have made their final alteration, with Willian coming on to the pitch to replace Fabregas for the final quarter-of-an-hour.
    • 75'
      Coleman seems to have picked up an injury, and there's a slight break in play as he receives medical attention inside the Everton half of the pitch.
    • 76'
      Chelsea keep coming at Everton, but the hosts have plenty a plethora of bodies behind the ball and are doing extremely well to keep the determined visitors at bay.
    • 77'
      SI Ramiro Funes Mori SO M. Bešić
    • 77'
      Coleman will play no further part in the game, and he makes his way off to be replaced by Funes Mori, who comes on to make his Everton debut.
    • 78'
      Matic twists and turns on the left-hand side of the penalty area before floating a lovely cross towards the back post, but it flies just past the goal and over to the right flank, where a second attempted pass is deflected out of play for a corner.
    • 80'
      Chelsea keep pushing forward and work the ball around on the edge of the penalty area as they desperately try to find a way into the hosts' box. They earn themselves yet another corner, but once again Everton deal with the danger comfortably to bring an end to another half-hearted attack from the re

      GOAL! It's 3-1! Everton move the ball around wonderfully well before Barkley cuts inside and tees up Naismith with a great through-ball. He controls the pass before spinning and firing a fantastic strike that flies past Begovic and into the bottom of the net. The hosts have surely wrapped up the vic
    • 84'
      Chelsea immediately push forward before Hazard chips a lovely cross towards the back post. Under pressure from Stones, Falcao is unable to make any sort of decent contact with the ball, allowing Howard to comfortably cut out the danger.
    • 86'
      Naismith is brought down by a poor challenge from Willian, resulting in a free kick for Everton in a dangerous position. Barkley decides to fire a strike from the resulting set-piece but it's easily dealt with Begovic.
    • 87'
      Stones kicks the ball away in frustration after giving away a free kick and, as a result, he's shown a yellow card.
    • 88'
      And now Azpilicueta earns himself a yellow card after cynically shoulder-barging Lennon to the ground as the Everton midfielder was attempting to break away quickly.
    • 88'
      Willian decides to float in a cross from the free kick but it fails to find Costa and is instead cleared away from danger by a strong header from Jagielka.
    • 89'
