Chelsea dominated play against Everton as the Blues put in a strong to beat the Toffees 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

To open the scoring, the Chelsea players moved the ball swiftly and made 20 passes until Mason Mount beat Jordan Pickford with a nice finish. The passing movement was the second longest passing sequence leading to a Chelsea goal in the Premier League this season.

Billy Gilmour completed 74 passes against Everton, more than any other player on the pitch, and one of those was to find Giroud, who passed to Barkley and he sent Pedro through on goal to beat the helpless Pickford.

For Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, this is the kind of performance he has been clamouring for all season, where the team will turn good play into goals.

“At home, this was our best performance,” said Lampard. “Because of the goals and the clean sheet. In terms of performance, we’ve been close to that level a lot here and then, in the end, I’ve been left mulling over a 1-0 defeat.

“Today it all came together, the energy, speed of pass, tempo. We need to keep our feet on the ground, but we saw some really good stuff today.”

Can the Blues with the kind of performances we have seen in the last two games?
