Steven Naismith had incredible first half in a 45 minutes of football to add further doubt to the Champions’ ability to defend their title. Chelsea, who have been known for their defensive resilience under Jose Mourinho, again looked vulnerable as Everton cut them up with ease.
Well, I say Everton, but a certain amount of credit must go to one man in particular. Steven Naismith grabbed both of his side’s goals. The Scot played a big part in both the creation and execution of the first; running towards the Chelsea goal only to lay it off and then finish Galloway’s cross.
The second was all Naismith as the forward fired low past Begovic. This strike made it Naismith’s 4th goal against Chelsea in his last 3 appearances. It’s fair to say that Mourinho must shiver every time he see’s the Evertonian’s name on the opposing team sheet.
Here are some of the best reactions to that first half …
