Everton Deny Chelsea Victory At Stamford Bridge

Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite scored the game-winning goal at Stamford Bridge, denying Chelsea victory.

In the first half, the Blues had Everton’s goal under siege but were unable to take advantage owing to sloppy finishing and Jordan Pickford’s brilliant performance.

Mason Mount put the hosts ahead with a beautiful finish 20 minutes from time following a great through-ball from Reece James.

However, Anthony Gordon’s inswinging cross from the left flank was turned in at the back post by 19-year-old defender Branthwaite after only four minutes.

The draw puts Chelsea four points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City in the table.

After testing positive for Covid-19, Chelsea forwards Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, and Callum Hudson-Odoi all missed the game, while Kai Havertz was also missing due to symptoms.
