Everton vs Chelsea LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Abdoulaye Doucoure scored in his 100th Premier League appearance for Everton and substitute Lewis Dobbin netted a late second goal to earn a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday that inflicted a third away defeat in a row on the mid-table London club.

Dwight McNeil surged forward with the ball on 54 minutes and slipped a pass to Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez saved the one-on-one chance, but Doucoure drilled the rebound into the far corner of the net.

Academy product Dobbin scored his first goal in an Everton shirt when he thrashed home a loose ball from a corner in injury time to seal the three points.

Chelsea slip to 12th in the table with 19 points from 16 games, while Everton have 13 points from 16 games. Without their 10-point deduction for financial breaches, against which they have appealed, Everton would be in 10th, four points ahead of Chelsea.

The visitors dominated possession and spent much of the game in the Everton half but lacked a clinical touch in the home side's box, while there was some excellent scrambling defence from the Merseysiders who have now won three Premier League games in a row for the first time since March 2021.

Abdoulaye Doucoure and Lewis Dobbin sank Chelsea deeper into mid-table mire by earning Everton a 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

The 30-year-old midfielder turned in a rebound after an Everton counter-attack as a toothless Chelsea were stung on a break by Dwight McNeil and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Substitute Dobbin struck from the edge of the area as Chelsea failed to clear to seal victory in extra time.

Chelsea's misery was worsened by a first-half injury to captain Reece James, who can't get over his fitness woes. Robert Sanchez also potentially came off injured.

Nizaar Kinsella was in Liverpool witnessing yet another Chelsea setback.

Mykhailo Mudryk and Armando Broja have been really dangerous so far, both are stretching Everton with their pace. Cole Palmer has been clever as ever dropping into pockets of space.

14:21 , Jonathan Gorrie

Cole Palmer is booked for diving, he expected the contact but then Mykolenko pulled out of the challenge, so it didn't look good.

Armando Broja is channelling his inner Diego Costa, manhandling a pretty tough Jarred Branthewaite. Good battle so far. Cole Palmer has had a great long range shot saved.

14:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

A very even game so far, Everton are threatening to create something without quite doing it. Robert Sanchez just flapped at a Dwight McNeil free-kick, which left Chelsea hearts in mouths.

Everton vs Chelsea: Mudryk lively

12 mins: Badiashile cannot direct his header from the winger's cross towards goal in a lively start for Mudryk.

Mauricio Pochettino is channelling his inner Thomas Tuchel today with the baseball cap look. The superstitious manager may feel he needs to change something to improve his fortunes.

05 mins: They are pressing Everton high and Fernandez has tried his luck from reasonably far out.

Mudryk just got in behind Young quite easily after a beautiful Chelsea move. It to a powerful but not in the corner shot from Enzo Fernandez.

Gareth Southgate is at Goodison Park today so it is maybe even more frustrating for Raheem Sterling that he isn't starting.

Everton vs Chelsea: Mauricio Pochettino offers double injury update

13:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

“We will see. The last step is always the most difficult thing. Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia are so close, but at the same time we had a small delay, but we hope that they can be involved soon.”

Everton vs Chelsea: Nizaar Kinsella at Goodison Park

13:48 , Jonathan Gorrie

Also, I've just realised why Mudryk is playing ahead of Sterling. Ashley (not so) Young is playing at right back for Everton.

Everton vs Chelsea: Nizaar Kinsella at Goodison Park

13:47 , Jonathan Gorrie

This will be a big game for a midfield that was overrun at Old Trafford in midweek. Conor Gallagher comes in to add energy with Raheem Sterling dropping to the bench and Cole Palmer moving out wide. Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez struggled but Gallagher might help them lift their level.

Everton vs Chelsea: Ruud Guillit sends message

13:43 , Jonathan Gorrie

Speaking to Gambling Zone, the former Blues boss said: "I feel for Everton, and I think everybody feels a bit of sympathy for them. I also like Sean Dyche as a coach. He knows the game very well and he hasn'talways had the best players to work with. What he does with his team isfantastic despite that. People tend to forget that.

"I want Everton to stay in the Premier League, and I wouldn't mind if they got a result against Chelsea! I say that only due to Everton's situation, though. I'm still a massive Chelsea supporter and I want them to win (games)!

"However, Ihave sympathy for Everton and I want them to stay up.

"I want Everton to win! I'm sorry to all the Chelsea fans! I like Dyche. I'dlike to see Everton stay in the Premier League.

"It's a tough one as I'm such a huge fan of Chelsea!"

Everton vs Chelsea: Nizaar Kinsella at Goodison Park

13:21 , Jonathan Gorrie

It’s important to give Broja a start as Chelsea weigh up signing a striker in January. Mauricio Pochettino wants to see if Broja is capable of leading the line before dipping into the market. The jury remains out on Nicolas Jackson despite some good performances, Christopher Nkunku remains out but back soon.

Everton vs Chelsea: Nizaar Kinsella at Goodison Park

13:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

Armando Broja and Benoit Badiashile start for Chelsea. Raheem Sterling is benched, with Mykhailo Mudryk starting. Thiago Silva rested and Nicolas Jackson also benched. Silva, Chelsea’s oldest ever out player, would have been asked to play three games in a week so it seems logical.

Confirmed Chelsea lineup vs Everton

13:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea XI: Sanchez; James, Disasi, Badiashile, Cucurella; Fernandez, Gallagher, Caicedo; Mudryk, Broja, Palmer

Subs: Petrovic, Silva, Colwill, Gilchrist, Maatsen, Matos, Castledine, Sterling, Jackson

Everton vs Chelsea: Mauricio Pochettino responds to fan boos and defends progress amid 'massive pressure'

12:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mauricio Pochettino says the "pressure is massive" at Chelsea, which makes it tough for his young players to adapt.

Mykhailo Mudryk, Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo all struggled in a poor 2-1 defeat away at Manchester United on Wednesday.

Chelsea currently have five fewer points after 15 Premier League matches than they had at this stage last season.

Asked whether he has made enough progress given that Chelsea have spent a total of £1billion on this squad in the last three transfer windows, Pochettino said: "How can they improve at the pace everyone wants at a club like Chelsea, where the priority is to win?

Everton vs Chelsea: Mauricio Pochettino cannot use latest excuse

12:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea have had their soft centre exposed in the north in recent weeks — and face another stern test of their mettle at Goodison Park on Sunday.

In both their 4-1 defeat by Newcastle last month and the 2-1 loss against Manchester United on Wednesday, the Blues have lacked both physical and mental toughness.

Fuelled by the perceived injustice of their 10-point deduction for alleged financial rule breaches, Everton will try to expose that vulnerability again.

Sean Dyche was at Old Trafford on Wednesday and saw first-hand how Chelsea struggled to deal with the intensity of United's high press.

Everton vs Chelsea: Mauricio Pochettino admits Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo must improve partnership

11:47 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mauricio Pochettino has explained why Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez have failed to build a partnership, and backed captain Reece James to return to his best.

Chelsea have struggled to make progress after a disappointing campaign last season, picking up five fewer points after 15 League matches than at the same point last year.

The latest defeat came away at Manchester United, the 2-1 scoreline flattering a Chelsea side who were well beaten and lost the midfield battle.

Asked why Fernandez and Caicedo have been unable to click as a midfield pairing yet, Pochettino said: “The relationship between them needs to improve, between them and individually.

Everton vs Chelsea: Head to head (h2h) history and results

11:38 , Jonathan Gorrie

The spoils have been shared across the last eight meetings between these teams, at three wins apiece with two draws. Ellis Simms grabbed a vital late leveller for the Toffees when they last faced off, at Stamford Bridge in March.

Everton wins: 59

Chelsea wins: 75

Draws: 56

Everton vs Chelsea: Score prediction today

11:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Toffees are riding the crest of a wave right now and face a Chelsea team which has become staggeringly inconsistent. Back-to-back away defeats have made their travels a real struggle and that may well continue this weekend.

Everton to win, 2-1.


11:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea are still waiting on Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia to be declared fit for their debuts.

Reece James will likely be fit enough to start at right-back having been a substitute in midweek, while Conor Gallagher is available following his ban.

A lengthy injury list for the Blues still includes Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Lesley Ugochukwu and more. Noni Madueke has been pronounced fit by the club, however.

James Garner sat out Everton's win over Newcastle due to illness, so is a doubt for Sunday's clash too. Amadou Onana is in contention to return to the squad, but Andre Gomes is set to miss out.

Seamus Coleman and Jordan Pickford picked up knocks on Thursday night and will be assessed, but Sean Dyche has played down concerns over both players.
