Everton Wins Three Crucial Points Against Chelsea Thanks To Jordan Pickford’s heroics And Richarlison’s Goal

Richarlison profited from a Chelsea error to secure struggling Everton a 1-0 Premier League win and what could be a precious three points in their bid to avoid relegation at a rocking Goodison Park on Sunday.

The home side grabbed the lead a minute into the second half after Cesar Azpilicueta gave up possession under pressure from the Brazilian forward, who harried the Chelsea captain into a mistake before slotting a low shot past goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea dominated possession and Frank Lampard’s Everton had to hold on grimly for the final half-hour.
