Chelsea get three points against Everton

Chelsea enjoyed a Sunday stroll in the Stamford Bridge sun as they cruised to victory against Everton.

First half goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata earned the champions all three points against Ronald Koeman’s side.

And the champions will go into the international break after back-to-back league wins, having started the season with a shock home loss to Burnley.

There was little danger of a repeat or Everton claiming their first win at Stamford Bridge for 23 years.

Chelsea were on top from the off and it was no surprise when they eventually broke through in the 27 minute.

Willian played the ball back to Fabregas, who combined with his fellow Spaniard Morata, before steering a perfectly-placed effort into Jordan Pickford’s bottom right-hand corner.

Five minutes before half time it was 2-0 when Morata got himself free in the box to head in Cesar Azpilicueta’s inch-perfect cross from the right.

The only question on a comfortable afternoon appeared to be how many more Chelsea would score.

And despite creating good chances for Pedro, Victor Moses and Willian they settled on just the two and saw off the threat of a late Toffees rally to run out winners.
