Chelsea have slipped to a disappointing 3-1 defeat to managerless Everton at Goodison Park this afternoon in the English Premier League.

Frank Lampard’s men were trailing from the fifth minute on Merseyside on a truly woeful afternoon for the club.

Everton took the lead with their first meaningful attack of the match. Djibril Sidibe crossed the ball onto the head of Richarlison and the player sent a bullet into the back of the Chelsea net.

The Blues had plenty of the ball during the remainder of the half but they struggled to create any real threat with home keeper Jordan Pickford largely untroubled.

The second goal of the game came just after the interval with Everton taking a 2-0 lead. Dominic Calvert-Lewin picked up a loose ball in the Chelsea box and rifled a low effort beyond Blues keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, the goal was given following a VAR check for handball.

Life was injected into Chelsea’s afternoon three minutes later when Mateo Kovacic took aim from distance. His powerful effort sailing beyond home keeper Pickford on it’s way into the net.

Mason Mount then went close to levelling matters for The Blues but fired his shot just wide before Everton made sure of the three points late on when Calvert-Lewin prodded the ball home from a Tom Davies cross following some sloppy Chelsea play.

The Blues are back in action on Tuesday evening when they take on Lille in their final UEFA Champions League group match at Stamford Bridge.
