FT: Chelsea 1 Everton 0

90+6
The corner is cleared and it's all over. That injury-time goal takes Chelsea four points clear at the top of the table and could be absolutely huge in the final reckoning. For Everton, plenty of endeavour for no reward and the top four is starting to look a long way away.

90+6
Corner for Everton. Last chance to get a point.

90+3
GOAL - TERRY! Lampard fizzes the free-kick into the danger area and Howard turns the ball into his own net under pressure from Terry, who is credited with the goal.

90+2
Jagielka has his name taken by Probert after tripping a flying Ramires. Dangerous free-kick on the left.

90
Plenty of time for a winner here: five additional minutes.

90
Ramires almost wins it! Stunning 25-yard effort after sidestepping McGeady's challenge. Howard, for the first time today, is beaten, but the ball flashes just wide of the upright.

89
Sloppy from Barkley, overhitting a simple pass for Coleman when Everton had a three-on-two break down the right-hand side.

88
Free-kick's cleared, but Chelsea still have the ball.

88
Free-kick for Chelsea out on the right as Baines catches Torres.

87
A hobbling Naismith back on the field and play resumes.

86
Everton's turn to break now as Barkley finds himself one-on-one with Terry. Chelsea man does superbly, watching the ball, not diving in, and making the tackle. Had to get that right. Chelsea look for a counter of their own, but Probert stops play because Naismith is down injured. Terry furious.

85
Ivanovic stands up a cross to the far post where Schurrle is a man over for Chelsea. But he snatches at the chance and slices his volleyed effort over the bar.

84
Schurrle drives inside from the left and goes for goal, but Howard always has his near post covered as the ball goes harmlessly wide.

83
Ball breaks to Torres 25 yards from goal, but there's no belief in the shot as he sends it high and well wide of the Everton goal.

82
Barry goes into the book for a cynical, counter-attack-halting trip on Ivanovic in the centre-circle.

82
Barkley does well to dig out a cross on the left, but it clears the danger area, and Matic gets back to stop Deulofeu profiting from the loose ball.

81
Flag up for offside as Chelsea attack. Think it was Torres the offender.

81
A remonstrating Mourinho is physically on the field of play as Everton take a throw-in on halfway.

80
McGeady replaces Pienaar.

79
Everton preparing to bring on McGeady. That's three positive substitutions from Martinez; Everton not settling for a point here.

78
Cahill tries to stride through the Everton midfield, but Barry makes the interception. Chelsea pushing for a winner.

77
Hazard flicks the ball over Distin but the ball just won't sit down for him to get a shot away. It breaks to Torres, whose shot deflects behind off Hazard for a goal-kick. Just not happening for Chelsea.

75
Deulofeu replaces Mirallas.

73
Good ball from Ivanovic finds Ramires inside the Everton box, but he loses his balance as he tries to cut on to his left foot and Everton bring the ball away. Home crowd frustrated.

72
Everton on the attack again, but Mirallas is penalised for what he felt was a shoulder charge on Cahill.

71
Torres frustrated after a throw-in decision goes against him, and is then penalised for a high foot. Referee Probert has words with the striker to try and calm him down.

69
Eto'o makes way for Schurrle as Mourinho makes his third and final change.

69
Distin wins a foot race with Torres and ushers the ball back to Howard.

67
Mirallas cuts inside from the right to shoot left-footed but Azpilicueta stays with him and makes the block.

66
Good break from Everton, but Pienaar can't find the right cross from the left.

65
Lampard looks to pick out Hazard's run, but the pass is a touch high and can't be brought under control.

64
Torres into the game for the first time... but he's offside.

63
Everton have a free-kick in midfield as Barkley replaces Osman.

62
Willian makes way as Torres joins Eto'o up front for Chelsea.

62
Wonderful arcing cross from Ivanovic on the right and Eto'o is inches away from making contact.

61
Double save! Brilliant from Howard to deny first Hazard and then Ivanovic on the rebound.

60
The corner is aimed at Cahill, but Naismith gets the slightest touch to turn the ball behind for another corner. Torres coming on soon for Chelsea.

60
Willian sets Eto'o away down the left. Wins a corner off Barry.

59
Corner's cleared, and the offside flag goes up as Everton look to reload.

58
Patient build-up from Everton ends with Coleman squaring the ball to Osman on the edge of the box. His shot is deflected and is spinning towards the bottom corner before Cech makes a fine save. Corner.

56
Everton almost get themselves in a tangle at the back before Distin clears.

55
Lampard shoots wide from 25 yards, but Chelsea have improved their tempo in this second half.

53
Good run down the right from Coleman. Evades two challenges but Terry comes across and makes a good, clean tackle at the expense of a throw.

52
It's Willian. It's poor. High and wide.

51
Cahill wins a free-kick off Barry within shooting range for Lampard, Willian and co.

51
Successive corners cause tense moments in the Everton six-yard box. Toffees rocking a bit for the first time.

50
Huge appeals for a penalty as Jagielka blocks Eto'o's shot. Chelsea have to settle for a corner, but the ball definitely did strike the defender's arm. Would've been harsh.

50
Better from Chelsea as Lampard combines with Hazard to work a shooting chance but Howard stands tall to make the block.

49
Chelsea's turn to feel aggrieved now as Willian goes down under Distin's challenge but nothing is given.

47
Ramires' first involvement is to give Pienaar a kick as the ball gets stuck underneath the Everton midfielder. Everton players unhappy, but it's just a drop-ball.

46
Everton get the second half under way.

HT
Change at the break for Chelsea, with Ramires replacing Oscar as the hosts look to regain control of the midfield battle.

Some half-time PRICE BOOSTS from Sky Bet, with Chelsea to win 2-0 now 8/1, a 1-1 draw available at 9/1 and Oscar 14/1 to score next. skybet.com for all your in-play markets.

45+3
The visitors undoubtedly the happier of the two sides at the break. Barry, McCarthy and Osman have edged the midfield battle while Chelsea, for all Hazard's probing, have looked a touch off the pace.

45+3
Baines swings the free-kick into the penalty box, and Lampard heads clear to bring the half to a close.

45+2
Mirallas wins a free-kick on the right after being caught by Oscar. Last chance of the half.

45+2
Willian tries his luck from distance but, like all Chelsea's efforts today thus far, it's easy for Howard.

45+1
We're into two added minutes as a speculative Hazard effort is gathered by Howard.

45
Chance! Pienaar's cross is headed clear to Mirallas. He's got a clear sight of goal on the edge of the box but makes such a hash of the shot that it almost turns into a pass for Naismith.

44
Great counter-attack from Everton, McCarthy's powerful run turning defence into attack. He finds a good pass out to Naismith as well before getting on the end of the striker's left-wing cross but seeing his shot blocked by Terry.

43
Free-kick flashes across the box to Matic on the left. He does well to dig out a cross, but Everton clear.

43
Pienaar trips Willian. Free-kick for Chelsea wide on the right.

42
Smart pass from Eto'o sets Lampard away, but his heavy first touch allows Baines to get across and make a sliding tackle.

42
Matic runs the ball out of play on halfway under pressure from McCarthy.

41
Terry climbs highest to meet Willian's outswinging corner, but heads well wide.

40
Hazard definitely Chelsea's liveliest player today. He beats two in midfield before finding Willian, whose shot is deflected behind for a corner.

39
Better delivery from Mirallas, but Jagielka can't quite capitalise and Chelsea scramble it clear.

39
Baines getting some joy down the left, wins another corner off Ivanovic.

38
Poor corner. Easily dealt with by Chelsea.

38
Baines wins a corner for Everton.

37
Eto'o works himself a shooting chance, but the angle is tight and Howard blocks.

36
MIrallas flagged offside as Everton look to break.

34
Chelsea almost caught out as Mirallas plays the corner short to Baines and gets the ball back to whip across the six-yard line. Jagielka gets his head to the ball, but with not enough of a contact to divert the ball inside the far post.

33
Everton win a corner. Mirallas to take it.

33
Good deep cross from Willian finds Lampard beyond the far post. He makes the wrong decision and tries to head goalwards rather than back across goal for the waiting Eto'o.

32
Disappointing cross from Ivanovic fails to beat first man Baines. Had time to pick out something better than that.

31
Crowd's gone quiet. First half hour belonged to Everton after they'd got throught the first eight or nine minutes.

29
Frantic spell of Chelsea pressure ends with Azpilicueta's curling shot from 20 yards safely gathered by Howard.

28
Better from Chelsea, who work a couple of good situations down the right-hand side. The second sees Hazard cut the ball back for Eto'o, but he completely misses the ball as he tries to shoot first time.

27
Chelsea look for a quick break, but Distin reads Lampard's throughball intended for Eto'o and intercepts.

26
Baines looks to get into the Chelsea box but never really has the ball under full control before Terry clears.

25
Barry giving Oscar no time on the ball here, again getting a foot in to dispossess the Brazilian and break up the Chelsea attack.

24
Chance for Chelsea to counter-attack, but Oscar's pass intended for Hazard is off target and Coleman is able to intercept as he cuts inside to fill in at centre-back.

23
Some needless free-kicks being given away by Chelsea. Lampard trips Naismith, but Everton waste the set-piece.

22
Free-kick swung into the box but headed clear. Everton have had 80% of the possession in the last five minutes.

21
Pienaar wins a free-kick after another decent spell of possession for the visitors.

20
Ivanovic carelessly gives the ball away to Mirallas in a dangerous area, but Everton can't capitalise. Azpilicueta mops up.

19
Everton seeing much more of the ball in the last few minutes. Good spell for the visitors.

18
Free-kick to Chelsea after a foul on Terry as the corner is cleared.

17
Crucial block from Cahill to divert Mirallas' volley behind for a corner after the Belgian was well picked out by Naismith.

17
A good sliding challenge from Ivanovic prevents Baines getting away down the Everton left.

15
An open first 15 minutes at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have had most of the ball, but that Osman drive turned behind by Cech the closest we've come to a goal.

14
Oscar gets in behind a dozing Jagielka, but can't get on the end of a long diagonal pass. Howard tidies up.

14
Great work from Barry to get back and dispossess Oscar.

13
Another poor corner. Lampard heads clear, and Chelsea break...

13
Not the best corner from Baines, but he'll get another chance as Cahill turns it behind.

12
Much better from Everton. Knocking the ball around patiently before working it out to Baines on the left. His cross finds Naismith, who tees up Osman to fire a shot goalwards. Cech forced to turn it behind for a corner.

10
Azpilicueta breaks down the left but runs out of pitch. Everton have a throw deep inside their own half.

9
Booking for Oscar after a clumsy, late challenge on a breaking Naismith.

9
Corner pinballs around before Howard punches clear. There are some appeals for handball as the ball returns to the area but nothing given.

8
Everton's first real forward foray from open play comes, unsurprisingly, via a Baines run and cross down the left, but he can't pick out fellow full-back Coleman who had also bombed forward. Crucial touch from Azpilicueta. Chelsea break and win another corner.

7
Hazard involved again in setting up a chance for Willian, but he's crowded out on the edge of the Everton box.

7
Hazard already pulling the strings here. Links up nicely with Oscar, but can't quite release Eto'o.

6
Azpilicueta asks too much of Eto'o. Jagielka gets there first and slides the ball back to Howard, who slices his clearance out of play for a Chelsea throw.

5
Hazard works a crossing opportunity for Matic on the left, but he overhits it. Everton throw.

4
Swift break from Chelsea ends with Willian cutting in from the left but dragging his 20-yard shot wide of the target.

4
Free-kick for Everton on the right, but Baines' delivery is headed clear by Cahill.

3
Eto'o looks to work an opening on the edge of the box after a good run from Azpilicueta, but overruns the ball and Everton clear.

2
Lampard's corner whipped in to the near post, where Osman gets the final touch. Another chance for Lampard from the flag, but this time he floats the ball straight into Howard's hands.

1
Hazard wins an early corner for the home side. Cahill and Terry make their way forward.

1
Chelsea get us under way.

Chelsea are 4/7 with Sky Bet to win this one, with an away win 11/2. The draw is 3/1. PRICE BOOSTS: Hazard to score first 6/1 from 11/2, Baines to score first 25s from 18/1. Head to skybet.com for a full range of markets.

TEAM CHANGE: Lacina Traore has picked up an injury in the warm-ups and will not now make his first Premier League start for Everton today. Steven Naismith replaces him in the starting XI.

Francis Fahey is on a boat. "Out in Atlantic on P & O cruise ship Oriana. And the game is being shown live in bar!! Yes! So attacking team and subs. 3-0 Chelsea. Hazard Lamps and Nando from bench. Come on you Blues!!"

Joe: "Tough one against a stubborn Toffees team! Revenge will be sweet, 2-1 Chelsea! Staying awake to watch it in NZ."

Guy Edwards: "Can't afford another slip up today against the toffees. Need a good performance from all the boys & a good win against a good side."

Chris Green: "Chelsea to win 2-0, with Oscar and Eto'o scoring the goals."

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Lampard, Matic, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Eto'o. Subs: Cole, Ramires, Torres, Schurrle, Salah, Ba, Schwarzer
