      Oscar picks up the assist, though it was his touch that made Fabregas offside in the first place!
    • 90'
      CHELSEA RESCUE A POINT AT THE BRIDGE! What an ending this has been to arguably the best half of football the Premier League has seen this season. Terry was offside in the buildup as Oscar's header sends him through on goal, but he will hardly care as the flag stays down and he finishes brilliantly t
    • 90'
      Willian does his best to run through the Everton team and he's nearly succesful, but his final shot drifts just wide of the far post and that could do it for Chelsea...
    • 90'
      Everton settling themselves now, working hard to not let another lead elude them. One of the Toffees fans has the headband Funes Mori was wearing when he scored the goal, and he's the centre of attention behind the Chelsea goal.
    • HALF TIME
    • 90'
      It's a yellow card for Funes Mori as he jumps into the crowd in celebration. Prolonged celebrations indeed for Everton, as Chelsea are keen to get the game back underway.

      A six-goal thriller in the second half is split evenly by the two teams as John Terry's controversial last-second equaliser sees the Blues remain unbeaten under Guus Hiddink.
    • 0'
      Scattered jeers rain down at Stamford Bridge as the players head to the tunnel for the break. It hasn't been as stale as the scoreline suggests, but quality has generally been lacking in the final third - especially from Chelsea. The Blues have only once forced Howard into action, through Willian, w

      The players make their way out onto the pitch, lead by skipper John Terry who makes his 700th club appearance today. It's not the most energetic atmosphere at Stamford Bridge but that can change should Chelsea get off to a high-flying start.

      Three changes to the Toffees side made by Roberto Martinez from their draw at the Etihad midweek. Bryan Oviedo returns to the starting lineup, allowing John Stones to return to his natural position at centre-half, which forces Ramiro Funes Mori to the bench. Aaron Lennon and Kevin Mirallas are also

      With Eden Hazard and Radamel Falcao still injured, boss Guus Hiddink makes just the one change to his starting lineup following their draw with West Brom. Nemanja Matic comes into midfield to partner John Obi Mikel, pushing Cesc Fabregas into a more advanced role and Oscar to the bench. Pedro keeps

      CONFIRMED TEAM NEWS:
    • 0'
      Everton showed great resistance in holding Manchester City to a draw on Wednesday, a truly encouraging sign for a Toffees side that had been leaking goals previously. Roberto Martinez will still have his sights set on a place in Europe next season, but their prospects are not looking particularly gr

      Hello and welcome to live coverage of Everton’s trip to Stamford Bridge to take on a Chelsea side hoping to maintain their unbeaten run. Things appear to be looking up for the Blues under Guus Hiddink, and although they stumbled in a draw with West Brom midweek, their performance merited more. They
    • 1'
      Chelsea get this game underway on a cold day in west London!
    • 3'
      Everton keep the bulk of possession inside the first few minutes, but the bulk of it comes at the back. There will be plenty of eyes on John Stones today amidst constant speculation of a move to Chelsea in the summer, after the Blues pursued him heavily this past offseason.
    • 5'
      Perhaps not surprisingly it has been a timid start from both teams at Stamford Bridge, with neither side looking particularly keen on taking risks. Willian offers the only piece of direct, attacking play, but his attempted through ball for Fabregas is sniffed out capably by Jagielka.
    • 7'
      STAT: No side has lost more points from leading positions this season than Chelsea (12 - level with Bournemouth and Newcastle). They only dropped 15 throughout the entirety of 2014/15.
    • 9'
      Zouma shows great pace to bail out Ivanovic who had been beat by a long ball over the top. The right-back appears to have no interest getting into a foot race these days and if the early stages are any indication, there could be plenty of space for Mirallas out wide this afternoon.
    • 11'
      There hasn't been much tempo adopted by this match through the first 10 minutes. Both sides are putting an emphasis on keeping their shape off the ball and it has really plagued the flow of the game from a neutral standpoint.
    • 13'
      Neither side has mustered an attack yet, with both Courtois and Howard hardly having a touch on the ball up to this point. Both sides are being afforded time in midfield to pass the ball around, but are being smothered when they look to transition into attack.
    • 15'
      That's what Everton need more of! Leighton Baines gets forward for the first time on the overlap, and makes a positive contribution as he's tripped up by Fabregas near the touchline. The Toffees can create something from the ensuing free kick.
    • 17'
      CRUCIAL FROM HOWARD! Chelsea break with terrific pace following Everton's squandered free kick. Willian is sprung through in the left channel and has a good effort at goal from in close, but Howard reacts smartly to get his hands up and knock it behind for a corner!
    • 19'
      STAT: This is Roberto Martinez’s 250th Premier League match as a manager, and his next defeat with bee his 100th in the top flight (W77, D73, L99).
    • 21'
      Everton put together a pair of teasing counters, but neither amount to much. The first of which is sniffed out well by Zouma, before Lennon's final effort drifts wide, while Lukaku scuffs his shot from 20 yards out on the most recent attack. Still, encouraging signs for the Toffees.
    • 23'
      VITAL AGAIN FROM ZOUMA! Lukaku shrugs off Terry far too easily and then works a quick one-two with Mirallas to send him through on goal, but Zouma sprints across to provide just enough cover to force the ball to run to Courtois.
    • 25'
      Lukaku is winning the battle between the two strikers thus far, seeing more of the ball and proving more of a nuisance for the opposition's back line. Chelsea have been quite underwhelming in attack, with Willian the only bright spot going forward thus far.
    • 27'
      One touch too many from Mirallas, who holds onto the ball too long and misses the opportunity to send Barkley through on goal. Everton are starting to send an extra body or two into attack as they sense a real opportunity to jump out ahead at Stamford Bridge.
    • 29'
      STAT: Everton have lost just one of their 10 Premier League away games this season (W3, D6, L1). Only Crystal Palace (eight) have conceded fewer than the nine goals allowed by the Toffees on their travels this season.
    • 31'
      Barkley is really growing into the game and starting to enjoy himself a great deal in possession. The game has tilted dramatically in Everton's favour and it's reached the point where you could hear a pin drop at Stamford Bridge.
    • 33'
      Pedro has been very poor for Chelsea, unable to offer any sort of outlet down the right flank. As a result it has made Chelsea very one dimensional going forward. They are far too static off the ball as well.
    • 35'
      Everton have been the exact opposite of static in attack, with everyone interchanging positions and offering great runs off the ball to open up space in the final third. The terrific defending of Zouma is all that has prevented Chelsea from falling behind up to this point.
    • 37'
      A rare attack from the hosts results in a corner for them, though Willian's delivery sums up the match as a whole to this point as it runs out of play before swinging back out into the danger area. Boos rain down at Stamford Bridge.
    • 39'
      SENSATIONAL FROM MIRALLAS! The Belgian with an incredible turn in midfield to get beyond his marker and cut onto his right. He darts across with real pace before driving a wonderful strike at goal, but Courtois gets across so quickly to get a hand to it and deny his fellow countryman!
    • 41'
      STAT: Chelsea have conceded 31 times in their opening 21 matches this season, their highest ever total in a Premier League season at this stage.
    • 43'
      Everton remain in possession as we approach the interval, though there are plenty of Blue shirts back in defence as the hosts try to ensure we head to the break at nil-nil. These home fans don't exactly appreciate how this first half has played out.
    • 45'
      There will be just one minute added on at the end of this first half.
    • 46'
      Back underway at Stamford Bridge!
    • 48'
      The teams exchange early attacks as the tempo suggests we may be in for a more lively second half. Pedro is the architect for Chelsea's, a rare contribution from him, but his cross into the middle eludes both Costa and Fabregas. At the other end, Terry is able to get a piece of Mirallas' shot to tak
    • 50'
      EVERTON DRAW FIRST BLOOD! Beautiful passing out of the back from Everton and Barry as they work forward into attack. Barkley holds the ball up before playing Baines through on the left. The wing-back sends in a delightful ball for Lukaku, but Terry flubs it into his own net before the striker can ev
    • 52'
      STAT: Chelsea are unbeaten in the Premier League since Guus Hiddink took over, but have only won twice (W2, D3, L0). It is their longest unbeaten run of the season.
    • 54'
      DENIED BY THE WOODWORK! So sloppy from Matic in midfield as he gives the ball away cheaply, allowing Everton to break. Mirallas slides in Barkley who tries to squeeze the ball in at the near post, and has Courtois beaten, but smacks his effort against the frame of the goal!
    • 55'
      SI Oscar SO N. Matić
    • 55'
      Long overdue change here from Hiddink. Matic and Mikel both in the team is a bit redundant and the duo were too negative in possession. The Serbian's afternoon is done, replaced by Oscar, which will push Fabregas into a deeper position.
    • 56'
      G K. Mirallas Assist N. Matić
    • 56'
      Baines the architect yet again, though this time there was a lot more work to be done when his cross came in.
    • 56'
      IT'S AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER! The cross in from Baines was a bit behind Mirallas who takes a terrific first touch, swivels and sends an exquisite half-volley past Courtois and in at the near post! It's turning into a night to remember for Everton!
    • 58'
      Ivanovic is having himself a nightmare in defence, with his flank being ripped to pieces by the likes of Baines and Mirallas. Chelsea have a mountain to climb and their enigmatic striker is starting to lose his temper to make matters worse.
    • 60'
      DELIGHTFUL FROM HOWARD! The keeper reacts brilliantly to deny the improvised flick from Fabregas following an Azpilicueta cross, before Jagielka comes across to remarkably block the follow up from Pedro!
    • 62'
      STAT: Roberto Martinez has lost on all six Premier League trips to Stamford Bridge as an opposition coach, but he could become the first Everton manager to do the double over Chelsea since 1978-79.
    • 64'
      G Diego Costa Assist N. Matić
    • 64'
      That's much more like it from Fabregas, who has created more from deep than he did in the entirety of the first 55 minutes in a more attacking role.
    • 64'
      CHELSEA BACK IN BUSINESS! Jagielka is indecisive in dealing with Fabregas' ball over the top, and Costa is able to pounce, beating the defender for pace and poking the ball past Howard who found himself in no-man's land.
    • 66'
      G Fàbregas Assist N. Matić
    • 66'
      SI Kenedy SO N. Matić
    • 66'
      Pedro's day is done, the Spaniard unable to contribute to Chelsea's turnaround as Kenedy comes on to replace him.
    • 66'
      Costa has come to life as well, now contributing the assist to add to his goal moments ago.
    • 66'
      REMARKABLE TURNAROUND FROM CHELSEA! Costa and Fabregas linkup atop the area and the latter takes a return pass and drives a shot at goal. It takes a massive deflection off Jagielka, leaving Howard with absolutely no chance.
    • 68'
      Stamford Bridge is absolutely deafening now! The stadium has come to life following this most improbable of turnarounds from the hosts. This is wonderfully poised for the final 20 minutes.
    • 70'
      Concern here for Everton over Oviedo. The training staff comes out and this is proving to be a lengthy delay as the stretcher now makes its way out. Clearly his day is done, as his left leg is clattered into by Kenedy after making a clearance.
    • 71'
      SI Ramiro Funes Mori SO N. Matić
    • 71'
      Oviedo is carried off on a stretcher and is replaced by Ramiro Funes Mori, which will likely push Stones back across to the right.
    • 73'
      STAT: Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 20 Premier League matches against Everton at Stamford Bridge (W11, D9), since a 1-0 defeat in November 1994.
    • 75'
      WHAT A CHANCE FOR COSTA! Chelsea are beaming with confidence following their turnaround and are looking every bit capable of snatching all three points. Azpilicueta sends another great ball in from the left which is helped on by Kenedy, but Costa can't turn it in at the far post!
    • 77'
      SHOULD BE THREE! Mirallas is sent through behind the defence from Besic, with a clear sight of goal. He tries to pass the ball through the legs of Courtois, but the keeper uses his big frame to close down the angle and keep it out!
    • 79'
      We have reached another stoppage in play now as Costa goes down in real agony. It is unclear exactly how he hurt himself, or what it is that's bothering him, but based on the area the trainers are looking at Chelsea fans will be wary of it being a remnant of his lingering hamstring issues.
    • 80'
      SI L. Rémy SO N. Matić
    • 80'
      SI Deulofeu SO N. Matić
    • 80'
      Everton prepare a double change, the first swap of which sees Lennon replaced by Deulofeu.
    • 80'
      Costa's day is done as the striker is replaced by Loic Remy. His long term health will be the real concern at this point.
    • 81'
      SI S. Pienaar SO N. Matić
    • 81'
      Steven Pienaar is also introduced by the visitors, with Barkley giving way. This is an interesting one, though the midfielder has faded a bit over the last 15 minutes.
    • 83'
      STAT: Chelsea have won the last two home games against Everton with the go-ahead goals scored in the 89th and 90th minute.
    • 85'
      NOT TOO FAR AWAY! Obi Mikel, the man with just one Premier League goal to his name, latches onto a loose ball from under 25 yards out and cannons an effort towards the top corner, but it drifts just beyond the woodwork! That was agonisingly close to the go-ahead goal!
    • 87'
      Stones, who has moved over to right-back following the substitution on Oviedo, delivers an exquisite ball in from the flank than just narrowly evades Lukaku at the far post. The game is becoming increasingly stretched now and there could well be another sting in the tail in these final few minutes.
    • 89'
      Everton sending their full-backs forward with great determination now. They don't want to settle for a point given the fact they were two goals to the good not too long ago. There promises to be plenty of time added on given the two injury stoppages for Oviedo and Costa.
    • 90'
      G Ramiro Funes Mori Assist N. Matić
    • 90'
      That was a sensational ball in from Deulofeu who really served the ball up on a platter for Funes Mori.
    • 90'
      EVERTON SURELY SNATCH IT AT THE DEATH! It's a splendid delivery from Deulofeu to spot Funes Mori at the far post, and the defender sticks out his right leg to poke the ball past a stranded Courtois. Euphoria for the Toffees, and Roberto Martinez leads the applause!
