Chelsea Score Six At Goodison Park

Chelsea emerged 6-3 victors against Everton in a goal laden English Premier League thriller at Goodison Park on Saturday night.

Chelsea made it three wins in as many games to head to the top of the league standings while Everton still remain winless with two points.

Chelsea got off to an explosive start, taking the lead inside the first minute when Cesc Fabregas' through pass played Diego Costa onto goal and the striker blasted past Tim Howard from inside the box.

Two minutes later Chelsea doubled their lead through Branislav Ivanovic who fired home from close range, after being played behind Everton’s defence.

In the 16th minute Everton thought they had pulled one back when Slyvan Distin tapped in a rebound but the defender was ruled offside.

Chelsea seemed to fade away from the game as Everton settled and took the game to Chelsea but the away team defended well.

Everton reduced the deficit on the 45th minute mark as Kevin Mirallas leaped the highest to powerfully head Seamus Coleman's right wing cross into the back of the net.

Everton began the second half on the front foot, but it was Costa who should have scored for Chelsea but the striker dragged his effort wide with only the keeper to beat.

Chelsea added a third goal in the 66th minute as Eden Hazard dribbled towards the byline and his cross was deflected into goal by Coleman.

Three minutes later Everton pulled one back   through Steven Naismith’s shot from inside the box.

Chelsea restored their 2 goal lead as Nemanja Matic scored with a long range attempt.

Second half subsitute and newly signed striker Samuel Eto'o scored with his first touch of the game when he headed his effort past Thibault Courtois. 

A minute later, at the other end Chelsea added goal number five as Ramirez toe-poked past  Howard from an acute angle.

In the 80th minute Mirralas almost bagged his brace had it not been for a point blank save onto the upright by Courtois.

Costa grabbed his second and Chelsea's sixth goal to make it 6-3.
