The dismissal of Marco Silva seems to have resurrected an Everton that three games later won again by winning Chelsea 3-1.
The ‘Toffees, in their first game in the post-Silva era, beat the’ Blues’ with ease and solvency. Somewhat from Richarlison, the newly renewed Brazilian attacker and spearhead of the project, launched Everton during the first half.
Chelsea, far from reacting, received the second goal just after the break, through striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Three minutes later, Frank Lampard’s team woke up with Mateo Kovacic’s second target as a Chelsea player, after which he made Valencia in the Champions League.
The Croatian shortened distances and Chelsea had opportunities to level the match, especially a very clear one in Mason Mount’s boots.
However, in the twilight, Calvert-Lewin made the second for Everton and sentenced the contest, inflicting Chelsea his first defeat in the post-election era, since this Friday the Superior Arbitration Court announced its decision to suspend half the penalty for irregular signings of young players, so Chelsea can sign this winter.
The week could not be everything that the Blues had wanted and this defeat leaves them fourth, three points away from Manchester City, which has one game less and could widen that gap to six.
For its part, the Everton goes down and climbs to the fourteenth position, with 17 units.
