Fulltime - Kevin Friend blows the final whistle, Everton 0-0 Chelsea the final score. Toughest game the Blues have played this season.

89’ - Richarlison holding his groin, limps off for Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Everton still trying to play this out quietly.
There’ll be five minutes added on.

80’ - Lookman shows off some nimble footwork to break into the box, Kepa puts it out for a corner.
Azpi clears for another corner, before it’s cleared away.

75’ - Sigurdsson has been limping again, and is now coming off for club captain Phil Jagielka. Still bemused how Jorginho didn’t get sent off for his attempted amputation.

72’ - Morata scores from a cross, but he’s clearly a couple of yards offside. Everton catch a break.

64’ - Pickford keeps the Blues in the game after a mazy run from Hazard ends in a deflected shot that the goalie pushes over the bar.
First Everton sub is Ademola Lookman, on for Bernard.

60’- Spell of sustained Chelsea pressure with a number of corners, but the Toffees survive.

47’ - Spectacular save from Pickford keeps Alvaro Morata out after a good cross from Hazard.
It’s been all Chelsea in the early stages of the second half.

Halftime - It’s 0-0 at the break, both sides have had their spells but the referee Kevin Friend is trying hard to be the man of the match. Breaking: He isn’t.

45+1’ - Both Bernard and Anton Rudiger booked after the defender runs plumb into the Brazilian. Bernard is absolutely bemused. Looked like Rudiger certainly tried to get Bernard sent off keeling over like that.

41’ - Now Digne is down writhing around. Catches a Willian elbow in his ribs.

40’ - Pickford with a big save from an Alonso volley after Gomes had brought Hazard down outside the box.

33’ - Kante in the book for kicking Richarlison from behind. Ref plays advantage but the ball gets to Kepa just before Walcott can get there.

29’: Sigurdsson hacked down by Jorginho who is then booked. Gylfi looked to have broken away after stealing the ball. He’s back on the pitch, hobbling around.
Having watched that again, how is Jorginho not sent off for that two-footed lunge?

22’: Mina goes in the book for a sliding challenge that clears the ball, and takes out Eden Hazard. Marcos Alonso’s free kick goes wide of Pickford’s right post.

20’: Both sides feeling each other out, no clear cut chances yet.

11’: Seamus Coleman wins another corner down the right. Digne delivers.. cleared and Bernard shoots from distance but it’s wide.

6’: Bernard with another incredible delivery from a free kick, skims over the top of Yerry Mina’s head on his debut.

3’: Early chance for the Blues as Richarlison wins a corner from a deflected shot. Lucas Digne’s corner goes across the six yard box and Andre Gomes can’t really get his head to it properly.

1’: Everton get us underway after a minute’s silence here at Stamford Bridge

Lineups: No real surprises there as Yerry Mina steps in to replace Kurt Zouma who is ineligible to play against his parent side. For Chelsea, Ross Barkley is on the bench.


Everton travel to Chelsea today looking for their first win at Stamford Bridge since 1994. Marco Silva will be sweating the fitness of Brazilian star Richarlison who has traveled with the squad to London, but it’s not clear whether he will start or come on as a substitute.

Hosts Chelsea, who also have a new manager Maurizio Sarri, are unbeaten this season and Everton will have a huge challenge on their hands to try end their miserable streak.
