PEEP! PEEP! PEEP! CHELSEA 2-0 EVERTON
FULL TIME!

Quite a comfortable victory for Chelsea. A travel ravaged Everton have been outplayed by Antonio Conte's unit. Two cracking goals in the first half from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata sealed the deal for the defending champions of the Premier League.

It might be too harsh to pass a severe judgment on Everton who've had to travel several thousand miles more than their opposition in the last 6 days. But Koeman will surely not tolerate more uninspiring stuff from his squad.

Chelsea seems to have broken free from the shackles and the early Burnley debacle will look like a one-off if they continue this form after the international break. For now, Conte's men, the defending champions are growing to look more and more like themselves.

AND THAT'S A WRAP!

That's it from me. It's me, Shambhu Ajith, signing out. 

Arrivederci!
...
92' Chelsea still hovering around the final third trying to sniff out a chance. Some fancy footwork all around by Chelsea players. Fabregas with an outside foot pass to Alonso. Alonso lays it off with a rabona to Willian on the left flank. Willian gets the better of his marker but his cross is deflected away from danger.
...
90+1' Chelsea are edging in on a comfortable victory at home. They are still looking for a goal and Everton look dispirited and tired.
...
89' Chance for Chelsea again!
Chelsea seemed content to keep possession of the ball in the final few minutes. But Luiz floats a long ball to Willian who takes it away from the defenders but fires it straight at Pickford. Once again!
...
Yellow! Azpilicueta gets a yellow card!
Subtitution for Chelsea
Christensen IN, Moses OUT!
...
87' COURTOIS FINALLY CALLED UPON HERE!
Gana Gueye strikes from right outside the box after Rooney found Calvert-Lewin in the box. Courtois palms it away from goal. 
...
85' Chelsea chance! Gets a corner!
A Chelsea counter attack should have ended in goal but Willian needlessly runs into the path of Moses, who was waiting in the center of the box and takes the ball away from him. Moses looked all set to fire it in! Corner for Chelsea. But nothing comes from it.
...
84' Chance for Everton! 
Baines gives the ball to Sigurdsson on the left wing and takes Willian away with a smart run. Sigurdsson serves a delicious ball into the 6 yard box and Ashley Williams meets it with his head but it goes wide.
...
83' Substitution for Everton
Jagielka OUT! Lennon IN!
...
82' Chelsea are probing again. Everton are holding them off somehow.
...
81' Chance for Everton finally! But offside!
Rooney takes the freekick this time. His ball from the left flank is not long enough and Ashley William's shot goes over the woodwork. Offside anyway!
...
79' Chance for Chelsea again!
Jagielka with a careless pass gifts it to Batshuayi. But Batshuayi releases Willian a bit too late. The Brazilian lays it off for Bakayoko whose shot is blocked. Everton regroup again.
...
78' Chelsea might not have been expecting this to be a more unrelenting fixture. However, Everton have not showed up and Conte's side looks all set to bag 3 points right now.

...
77' Substitution for Chelsea
Alvaro Morata 
walks out to thunderous applause from the Stamford Bridge faithful. Well deserved. That should give the man more confidence. 
Batshuayi will take over in the middle!
...
...
76' Sigurdsson finally plays a beautiful ball in from the left flank.But it comes to nothing. A swift transition later, Alonso drives a cross into the danger area for Chelsea but Pickford gets to it first.
...
75' Substitution for Chelsea!
Pedro walks out to a well-deserved standing ovation at Stamford Bridge. Tiemoue Bakayoko walks in.
...
73' Everton is back to being generous with Chelsea. Kante with a top tackle on Rooney and the pace of the match seems to be coming down once again. Chelsea are passing it around at the back once again.
...
71' Cross from the left wing by Calvert-Lewin is dealt comfortably by Chelsea. But the kid looks like he could be the one to throw Everton a rope tonight. Everton just didn't have enough bodies forward.
...
69' Scuffed by Rooney! Finally a half chance for Everton.
Calvert-Lewin takes Azpilicueta on a sprint and Everton finally get one more touch in the box. A cross is floated in of it falls at Rooney's feet. But he makes a mess out of it and the ball snailed away for a goalkick. Very unlike Rooney, that.
...
68' Corner for Chelsea!
Pedro is proving to be quite a handful to deal with. He turns away from Keane and sets Alonso free on the edge of the box. But Everton will put it out for a corner.
...
66' Uninspiring stuff from Everton so far. Chelsea have faced no challenges in defence today and Courtois could very well have his evening cuppa tea and biscuits with no hustle whatsoever.
...
63' Chelsea once again with Willian. Cuts inside from the right wing. Passes it back to the wing for Moses. Moses lays it off to Fabregas. But Fabregas's cross is gathered by Pickford without a worry.
...
63' Everton applying minimal pressure on Chelsea and the blues are off again. Alonso is released on the left flank and Everton has no cover. But Alonso skies his crossing attempt and only agitation comes out of it.
...
61' Substitution for Everton!
Dominic Calvert-Lewin for Sandro Ramires. That ought to instil some pace upfront for the Toffees, hopefully.
