Mason Mount Ends his Goal Drought
After failing to net a league goal since our 2-1 win against Aston Villa back in December, Mount finally got his name on the scoresheet. The youngster looked lively in the opening moments of the match and had a chance saved by his fellow international teammate Jordan Pickford. However, the 21-year-old made up for his earlier mistake and managed to get one past the Everton keeper just a few minutes later – starting off the scoring for the Blues. Mount began the run himself and then passed to Pedro who assisted the goal, with the Englishman slotting the ball into the bottom left corner. It was the perfect start to a great game at Stamford Bridge.
Billy Gilmour Impresses Yet Again
Following his superb perfromance against Liverpool during the week, the 18-year-old had another great game against Everton. Claiming his Premier League debut, Gilmour showed maturity and confidence against the Toffees. The Scotsman was not afraid to get stuck in tackles, controlled the midfield and even displayed his leadership qualities throughout the match. All in all, it’s been a solid week for the young man.
A Great Week for Ross Barkley
Speaking of impressive weeks, Barkley has also had something to celebrate over the past few days. After his goal against Liverpool on Tuesday night, the midfielder provided two assists against his former side, including a great through ball to Pedro for the second goal of the game. He was arguably one of the best players on the pitch and was able to find space comfortably in the midfield.
Another Superb Performance by Pedro
Despite rumours circulating about his future at the club, the Spaniard has also been excelling under Frank Lampard in recent times. The Chelsea boss decided to opt for a 4-3-3 formation ahead of Sunday’s game, with both Pedro and Willian working on the flanks. The 32-year-old was lively throughout, offering his pace and even helping out defensively at times – something he showed during our FA Cup match against the Reds. His goal was also taken brilliantly, with his work rate one of his best attributes in the match.
Goals, Goals and More Goals
Chelsea have often been criticised about their lack of goals this season, with Lampard also addressing our lack of finishing. Therefore, a 4-0 win against Everton was a great yet somewhat surprising result. The victory meant Lampard’s biggest Premier League win as a Chelsea manager and another brilliant home result. Not only were our wingers great creatively, but they also managed to get on the scoresheet themselves – and a goal from striker Oliver Giroud is something the boss will be thrilled with.
