The reigning Premier League champions Chelsea have secured their second win of the campaign after a disappointing start of the season. The Blues from the West London have sealed an important three points following their dominated 2-0 victory over Ronald Koeman’s side Everton on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had a bit relief before the game following the inclusion of Cesc Fabregas in the team after the completion of his one match suspension. The Spanish midfield maestro had a massive impact in the game and as a result, he broke the deadlock in the 27th minute of the game. The Spanish forward Alvaro Morata played a fantastic one-two with his international teammate and ex-Barcelona star just guided the ball into the back of the net with sheer perfection. In the 40th minute of the game, Chelsea increased the lead following the goal from the newly recruited Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata’s goal. Another Spaniard in the Chelsea team, Cesar Azpilicueta delivered a wonderful cross into the box and the ex-Real Madrid man sent the ball into the back of the net with a perfect head. The Everton players seemed to be very tired as they had to feature twice within seventy-two hours and as a result, the Chelsea goalkeeper had spent the day on vacation.
