Rampant Chelsea Demolish Everton 4-0 At The Bridge

Easy win for Chelsea. A great day for Frank Lampard. A day to forget for Carlo Ancelotti.

Carlo Ancelotti endured a miserable return to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea thrashed Everton to boost their top-four Premier League hopes.

Helped by the inclusion of 18-year-old Billy Gilmour, who made his Premier League debut, Chelsea started the game with a far greater tempo and went ahead after 14 minutes when Mason Mount ended an 18-game goal drought by firing past Jordan Pickford at his near post.

Pedro then latched on to a superb through ball by Ross Barkley to score his first goal of the season as Frank Lampard’s side took control.

Everton had a chance to strike back five minutes later but top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin duffed a shot with only Kepa Arrizabalaga to beat.

Two goals in the space of three minutes shortly after the break ended the game as a contest as Willian found the bottom corner with a low shot and Olivier Giroud continued his renaissance with a tap-in from a short corner.

Everton have been in form since Ancelotti’s first game on Boxing Day, during which time they have picked up 18 points.

But this was a desperately disappointing day for the Italian on his return to the club where he won the league and FA Cup double in 2009-10.
