scored a 2nd goal when Calvert-Lewin came in inches of assembly
Lucas Digne’s remaining-wing cross but Chelsea still had the firepower to
threaten an equaliser.

David Luiz’s 59th-minute go was cushioned by N’Golo Kante for Higuain whose crisp 25-yard strike pressured Pickford into an fantastic, 1-handed diving save.

Sarri rang the modifications, using off Barkley amongst others – a lot to
the delight of the home supporters – though Everton continue to looked the
