Half-time: Everton 1 Chelsea 1

first_imgFrank Lampard’s goal a couple of minutes before the interval hauled Chelsea level at Goodison Park.Steven Pienaar put Everton ahead after only two minutes, following up to fire home after Victor Anichebe’s header from Phil Jagielka’s right-wing cross had bounced back off the post.Everton hit the post again six minutes later, this time when Nikica Jelavic’s free-kick almost doubled their lead.Keeper Petr Cech also had to come to the Blues’ rescue, palming away Leon Osman’s shot and later denying Jelavic as the home side continued to dominate.Chelsea were able to welcome back Ramires, who returned from a knee problem to replace John Mikel Obi in midfield.Lampard and Eden Hazard also returned to the starting line-up, with Oscar and Victor Moses dropping back to the bench.The European champions barely troubled Everton for most of the first half but they did liven up shortly before the break, and Juan Mata had an effort well saved by keeper Tim Howard.Mata then delivered a low cross to the far post, where Ashley Cole was just unable to connect.Chelsea eventually equalised when Lampard headed in Ramires’ cross.Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole, Ramires, Luiz, Lampard, Mata, Torres, Hazard.Subs: Turnbull, Oscar, Moses, Ferreira, Marin, Piazon, Ake.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
