Well, who saw this coming?
Chelsea were immediately given some bad news after Steven Naismith came on as a sub for Muhamed Besic in the 9th minute. After that, Naismith really turned it on and scored twice in a span of five minutes as Chelsea was left scrambling. Between then and the half, Nemanja Matic scored a very beautiful goal but was still down 1-0.
This was Naismith’s first goal. A nice header from Brendon Galloway put Everton up 1-0.
Naismith’s second goal of the day was this sneaky great strike from outside the box. After receiving the pass from Ross Barkley, Naismith got a bit of pace on the ball but kept it rolling on the ground to loop around Asmir Begovic and be up 2-0.
The half ended with Nemanja Matic scoring this beauty from about 25 yards out. Really a goal like this should count double and Chelsea be tied but that’s not how the game is played. Chelsea still needs a goal to get even.
