Everton End Chelsea’s Unbeaten Run at Goodison Park

By Fidelis Aboh, Lagos

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s first Premier League goal of the season ended Chelsea’s 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

Everton secured a 1-0 win over Chelsea to deny the visitors the chance of going top of the table.

With 2,000 supporters back in the stands at Goodison Park, Sigurdsson’s calmly-slotted 22nd-minute penalty proved to be enough to secure all three points for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Mason Mount struck the woodwork twice in the second period, while Everton were denied a second penalty after a VAR review showed Dominic Calvert-Lewin to have been in an offside position in the build-up.

The result moves Everton up to seventh in the table after only a second win in eight Premier League games while Chelsea remain third, two points behind leaders Tottenham.
