Chelsea and Everton played out a very entertaining match at Stamford Bridge on the last day of this year’s Premier League season. Chelsea, for the third time in as many matches, came out on top by a 2-1 scoreline. Chelsea’s player of the year Juan Mata and Fernando Torres were on target while Steven Naismith scored for the Toffees.
The match started off full of energy with great football being played at both ends of the pitch. Demba Ba took a strong shot from outside the box in the seventh minute which Tim Howard couldn’t hold on to, only for Mata to pounce on the loose ball and put it in the net. Barely ten minutes later, Chelsea paid for some poor defending, when Victor Anichebe brilliantly played Naismith in, who made no mistake in finding the corner of the net. The rest of the half was very hotly contested with both sides creating lots of chances but failing to take any. The Toffees were particularly unlucky to see a Darron Gibson effort from range cannon back off the same crossbar twice!
