Premier League: Everton FC beat Chelsea FC


Everton won surprisingly against Chelsea in the Premier League. Toffees won the first match after the separation of coach Marco Silva 3-1 (1-0). Richarlison had already taken the lead after five minutes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin deciding the game with two goals (49th minute, 84th minute). Chelsea's Mateo Kovacic succeeded only in the meantime (52nd).

For Everton it is the first win after three defeats in a row, the club separated from Silva after losing in the derby against Liverpool FC. Interim coach Duncan Ferguson, who was a player for Everton between 2000 and 2006, depended on players' physics for his coaching debut: Everton led a total of 37 duels, more than in a game of more than five years. The hosts also made several mistakes (14: 9). Everton is skipping relegation rates for now.

For Chelsea fourth, it is the third loss from the last four series matches. This could cause the Blues to lose contact with Manchester City and Leicester City, who are the first chasers of Liverpool series leaders, with three and six points ahead. Chelsea are showing inconsistent performances this season, no Premier League team conceding any goals away.

One reason may be the age for many players: Because no new transfers were allowed in the summer due to a penalty, talents such as Tammy Abraham or Mason Mount get playing practice this season – and pretty much convince. Chelsea are allowed to trade again in the winter, the transfer block, which was originally valid for the summer, has been shortened by Cas International Sports Court.

Kovac apparently participates in the game

A photo of former Bayern coach Niko Kovac, who had apparently seen the game in Goodison Park, caused a sensation on social networks. After the separation from Silva, it is unclear whether Kovac's visit speaks for a possible job. According to information from the "Goal" portal, Kovac has told Everton fans that he is taking a break from football.
