Everton are in flying form at present, and are finishing the season strong. Here we cover a number of the recent impressive winning performances from the side.
Everton 2-0 Chelsea
The victory over Chelsea in March was an eye catching one, as Everton created many chances at Goodison Park. Chelsea controlled the possession at 68%, but it was Everton who were the most clinical, with the game finishing 2-0. This started with Richarlison scoring in the 49th minute, before one of the stars for the squad this season in Gylfi Sigurosson netting the second in the 72nd minute. This was a very impressive victory for Everton.
