Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte was predictably chuffed after watching his side put 5 goals past Everton as the Blues thrashed the Toffees at Stamford Bridge.

The win for Chelsea was their fifth straight in the Premier League, all games in which they haven't conceded a goal either, ever since Conte moved to a 3-4-3 system, wherein his side tends to defend and attack as a unit, making them exceptionally efficient in both boxes.

Everton were on the wrong end of a hiding today at Stamford Bridge, going down 5-0 to Chelsea, who were simply in a class of their own, putting in a tremendous performance at both ends of the pitch.

Everton Manager Ronald Koeman doffed his hat to Chelsea after the game, telling BT Sport, "They played very well, I expected more from my team. It was a big difference in every aspect. It was not about the system, the difference was the mentality to win the game With five defenders we control it, after 2-0 it was over. You have to accept sometimes in life your opponent is by far the better team."

The Chelsea turnaround story continues to amaze as the Blues went top of the table just weeks after having been written off already this season, with Antonio Conte masterminding another fantastic performance, one which resulted in a poor Everton side leaving Stamford Bridge with their tails between their legs on the wrong end of a 5-0 scoreline.

Consistency thou art Antonio Conte as the Blues' boss fielded the same starting eleven for the third successive game, coming into this clash on the back of four straight wins in the Premier League and no exertions in midweek on account of not being in Europe this season.

French midfielder Moussa Sissoko has said he joined Tottenham Hotspur football club over Everton because he feels he can win the English Premier League (EPL) title with the north London side. Sissoko moved to Tottenham from Newcastle, joining for a club-record 30 million pounds ($39.7 million) just before the summer transfer window closed on 31st August.

The Frenchman turned down advances from Everton in order to move to north London and vowed to "fight every day" to win over the Tottenham fans.

A second half hat-trick from Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku against Sunderland ended his own personal goal drought that had lasted an incredible 1,139 minutes, and more importantly propelled Everton into the top 3 of the Premier League standings, level on points with his former (and quite possibly future) club Chelsea and ahead of Manchester United.

After a goal-less first half at the Stadium of Light in which Everton were a little lackadaisical and more than somewhat wasteful, new Manager Ronald Koeman showed he isn't scared of making big decisions, replacing an out of form Ross Barkley with Gerard Deulofeu, a decision which sparked Everton into life in the second half.
