Everton 3-6 Chelsea: Costa brace leads Blues to frantic victory

first_img1 Chelsea striker Diego Costa celebrates his brace against Everton Everton were made to pay for a series of defensive blunders as Chelsea came out on top of a frantic nine-goal thriller at Goodison Park, Diego Costa netting twice in a 6-3 away win.The visitors were boosted by the surprise inclusion of thought-to-be-injured frontman Costa and the Spaniard gave Chelsea the lead inside the first minute, with Branislav Ivanovic doubling the advantage two minutes later.And while the Toffees rallied when Kevin Mirallas pulled one back with a header on the stroke of half-time, Jose Mourinho’s men ran riot after the break.Seamus Coleman first flicked Eden Hazard’s cross into his own net, and while Steven Naismith’s goal gave Everton hope by reducing the deficit, Nemanja Matic quickly struck back to restore Chelsea’s two-goal cushion.Roberto Martinez then handed Samuel Eto’o his Everton debut, with the veteran frontman coming off the bench to net against his former team-mates to make it 4-3.But the London outfit refused to sit back on their slender lead, with Ramires adding another and Costa notching his brace in the closing stages to conclude a remarkable contest between the top flight sides.Ahead of the game the focus was on two forwards, with rumours suggesting Chelsea’s summer signing Costa could be ruled out for weeks with a hamstring problem, while eyes were also on Everton’s record arrival Romelu Lukaku who had a point to prove against his former club.But the Costa rumours proved false as the Spanish forward put the visitors in front after just 45 seconds.His darting run through the middle was missed by the distracted Sylvain Distin but was found by another inch-perfect assist from Cesc Fabregas, with Costa running clean through on goal and coolly finishing through Tim Howard’s legs.Mourinho’s ruthless side completed their rapid start just two minutes later, Ivanovic slotting a second after neat passing between Costa and Ramires, though replays showed the full-back had strayed just offside.Credit to the hosts, though, as they gathered themselves from their nightmare opening and began to test Thibaut Courtois.First, Lukaku saw his header – a rare chance for the forward – clatter the bar, with Distin seemingly atoning for his earlier mistake to fire in the rebound only for the linesman to correctly rule out the goal for offside.Naismith was next to go close for the Toffees, the Scottish striker finding himself in acres of space before his clever turn and shot was well parried by Courtois.Everton were having the most joy on the right, with Seamus Coleman and Aiden Mcgeady overpowering Blues left-back Cesar Azpilicueta with their pace and intricate link-up play.But as much as Roberto Martinez’s men gallantly attempted to work their way towards goal, the disciplined Terry, Gary Cahill and Ivanovic restricted the hosts from posing much of a threat to their young stopper, his only other real save looking easy as he gathered Mirallas’ swerving drive.And, after doing well to get themselves back into the contest, Everton were close to having any hope of a comeback snatched away from them when Costa again broke through, this time after Phil Jagielka was dragged out of position, but the Spanish hitman was denied by the post, with the linesman flagging for offside anyway.Having survived that scare, Martinez’s men ensured they were in a better position at the break when Mirallas made their sustained pressure count to plant a looped header past Courtios, Coleman with the assist after the full-back again exposed Chelsea’s vulnerable right flank.But if you thought the first-half was impressive, you hadn’t seen anything yet.The hosts began quickly after the restart as Distin went close with a deflected header, but Chelsea soon reinstated their dominance and could have put the game well and truly to bed when Costa again broke through of Everton’s shoddy back-four, though Howard was their saviour this time as the American tipped the striker’s side-footed effort round his post with the toe of his boot.It was then that the goals began to flurry, with five scored in a freak ten minute spell.Chelsea found their third on 67 minutes when Eden Hazard’s goal-bound cross was poked past Howard by the unlucky Coleman, but the hosts immediately hit back as Naismith netted his third goal in as many games with a confident finish from McGeady’s perfect pass.The Goodison Park faithful were roaring their team towards what seemed would be an impending equaliser, but they instead fell to pieces at the back as Matic re-established his side’s two-goal lead with a deflected effort off Jagielka.However, the hosts again mustered an instant response, with Eto’o scoring his first goal with his first touch in Everton blue, finding the net with a clinically-placed header just two minutes later.Surely, with just a goal in it once again, this was the time the Toffees would make it count, but the end-to-end battle continued as the Stamford Bridge outfit went back two in front in their very next attack as Ramires found the net from close-range.The Merseysiders were a whisker away from continuing the goal frenzy, but Courtois was on hand to prevent Mirallas whose improvised backheel flick was tipped onto the bar by his Belgian compatriot.And any hope Martinez’s spirited side harboured was completely erased when Costa landed the knock-out blow in the 90th minute, darting around the onrushing Howard and tapping into an empty net to finally seal the three points and lift Chelsea top of the table.last_img read more
