Everton boosted their hopes of Premier League survival as Richarlison's second-half strike and a string of fine saves from Jordan Pickford secured a crucial 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park.

Following Burnley's comeback victory against Watford on Saturday, the pressure was firmly on Frank Lampard's side, and the importance of the game was shown by the scenes around the ground before kick-off as Everton fans lined the streets to greet their side's arrival.

The electric atmosphere continued inside Goodison Park, and after a goalless first half in which Everton had the better of the play, they eventually broke the deadlock very early after the break through Richarlison's strike (46).

I Call True: A huge result for Everton who i really didn't expect to beat Chelsea and a double bonus for me personally as it sees Leeds dragged closer to being relegated which is a welcome bonus for sure.

Certainly didn't expect that scoreline, but it's what Everton must now do to survive.

Chelsea are just not consistent this season, a game like this should have been some easy points for them
