Frank Lampard’s Chelsea recorded their first win over Everton in five league games as the blues annihilated Carlo Ancelloti’s Everton 4-0 at Stamford Bridge. The Blues came into the game on the back of an impressive 2-0 nil win over Liverpool in the FA Cup in midweek as they keep their top-four dreams alive.
The likes of Mason Mount, William Borges da Silva, Pedro Rodriguez, and Olivier Giroud were all on target as Frank Lampard’s side got themselves in high spirit ahead of their Champions League round of sixteen-second leg against Bayer Munich.
