Chelsea defeated Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday thanks to goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill and Willian.

Here are key statistics from the game that you should know

Chelsea created four big chances out of the 11 shots we had against Everton on Sunday.

Despite Everton having one more effort on goal than Chelsea during the game, none of their chances were clear-cut chances.

Half of Everton’s chances were from outside the box.

Chelsea had five shots on target and scored three goals.

Cesar Azpilicueta made a game-high 51 passes and in the final third it was Pedro who led the way with 16.

Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa created the most chances. They created two chances each.

Matic completed more successful take-ons (6) than anyone else while Eden Hazard was next with 5 successful take-ons.

Nemanja Matic and Cesar Azpilicueta were solid defensively and they both recovered the ball 10 times.

Cesar Azpilicueta intercepted the ball 6 times, at least 2 more than anyone else.

Cesc Fabregas provided the assist for Willian’s goal and he has now had a hand in nine goals in his last eight games against the Toffees in the Premier League (four goals, five assists).

Chelsea stifled the threat posed by the league’s top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who won only three of his 11 attacking aerial duels, largely due to the good work of Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta and sub Nathan Ake.
