Five pictures that summed up Chelsea’s big win over Everton
Chelsea went into their clash with Everton last night knowing that a win would take them top of the Premier League table after Manchester City failed to beat Middlesbrough. While much of the talk surrounding the summit of the division has centred around the Citizens, Liverpool and Arsenal, the London club have been picking up points of late in the background, but they were anything but quiet against the Toffees.
Indeed, a 5-0 win was a real statement of intent from the Blues, with Everton, under Ronald Koeman, having been talked about at top four challengers already this term. The gulf in quality between the sides was apparent from the off, with Chelsea 2-0 up after 20 minutes through Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso.
Diego Costa then scored his ninth of the season before Hazard netted the goal of the game to make it 4-0. The Belgian was once again involved in the fifth, with his shot turned into the net by Pedro following Maarten Stekelenburg’s save.
