Everton’ revived after the match against Chelsea.

Everton’ improved its prospects of staying in the English Premier League after defeating Chelsea 1-0 in the 35th round on Sunday evening.


In the 46th minute, Richarlison scored the game’s only goal.

Everton’s score increased to 33 points in 18th place, two points behind Leeds United and Burnley, but he only played 33 games compared to 34 for his opponents, while Chelsea’s tally stayed at 66 points in third place.

Everton coach Frank Lampard used a 4-3-3 formation with Seamus Coleman, Mason

Holgate, Jerry Mina, and Vitaly Mikolenko in the back line.

Fabian Delph and Alex Iwobi moved around Abdullah Doukuri in front of the alliance line,

behind the attacking trio of Anthony Gordon, Richarlison, and Demari Gray.

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, used a 3-4-1-2 formation, with Cesar

Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, and Antonio Rudiger in the defense line, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek

in the middle of the field collaborating with Jorginho.

Reece James and Marcos Alonso moved on both sides of the pitch, while Mason Mount

played offensive midfielder behind Kai Havertz and Timo Werner of Germany.

In the first minute, the referee granted Everton a direct free kick, which Gordon missed the

target, and Chelsea answered in the eighth minute, when Mont hit a shot over the bar.

Everton supporters wanted a penalty kick after Mina was brought down in the 11th minute,

but the referee refused, then Gray forced Chelsea goalkeeper Edward Mendy to make an

emergency intervention following a court shot in the 18th minute.

And until the 33rd minute, when Gordon moved the ball from the right side before shooting

a low effort that passed close the goal, the first half hour of the match passed without

genuine chances on the two teams’ goals.

Richarlison received the ball three minutes before the end of the first half’s original time and

attempted to go past Azpilicueta and Silva before shooting wide.

Gray cut the ball from a confused Azpilicueta and gave it to Richarlison, who shot it slowly

towards the far post of the Chelsea goal in the first minute of the second half.
In the 49th minute, Doukuri transferred the ball inside the penalty area to Mikolenko, who struck from close range near the near post to give Everton a 2-0 lead.

In the 59th minute, Haveritz transferred the ball to Mont, whose ball rebounded off the posts and reached Azpilicueta, who appeared to score a goal, but Pickford blocked the ball with his hand before it crossed the goal line.
Pickford denied Chelsea an equalizer in the 60th minute after Rudiger’s effort rebounded off his face, and the referee refused to award Everton a penalty in the 63rd minute after the ball collided with James’s arm inside the box.
