Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Latest Premier League updates today


Everton began life after Marco Silva with a victory at Goodison Park as Frank Lampard’s high-flying Chelsea were shot down. 

Silva was sacked this week following the Merseyside derby defeat at the hands of rivals Liverpool which consigned Everton to the relegation zone. 

Club legend Duncan Ferguson took charge of the first team as rumours swirled of a return for David Moyes, and his first result was to beat fourth-place Chelsea 3-1 after goals from Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Follow all the action live:





Marcus Rashford’s penalty did the damage as City unravelled in a fit of rage that radiated out from their manager and infected his players to their own detriment 

 



Reaction from Man Utd midfielder Scott McTominay:

“It was always going to be difficult against a top team and some world-class players but we were frightening on the break.

“That gave us a platform and we withstood some pressure in the second half. We knew we had a plan and that first 30 minutes epitomised everything we spoke about. It was nice to see that pay.

“This year is has not also been the case but that shows how when you work hard it comes off.

“The second half was tough, we had to withstand lots of pressure with the way they play.

“It is a sweet one and celebrating like that in front of the fans is a beautiful thing.”
