Everton beat Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League

Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty helped Everton defeating Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday. With this defeat, Chelsea lost  the chance to go top of the Premier League as Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty earned Everton a vital 1-0 win in front of 2,000 fans at Goodison Park.  A first defeat in 18 games, excluding penalty shootouts, leaves  Chelsa still two points adrift of Tottenham and Liverpool at the top of the table.

Talking about the match, Reece James and Mason Mount hit the post for the visitors, but they were made to pay for one rash moment from goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as he bundled over Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Sigurdsson coolly slotted home the resultant spot-kick.

291 million spending spree had seemingly transformed Chelsea into title contenders, but they missed the creativity of Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic to break Everton down once the Toffees went in front. Carlo Ancelotti's men had slid down the table after a blistering start to the season and the need for Everton's own big spending to finally pay off with European football was laid bare when the club suffered losses of nearly £140 million for the 2019/20 season.
