Chelsea ended up losing their match against Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park, which gave the Toffees a boost in the hunt to climb out of the relegation zone. This was a crucial win for the Merseyside outfit and boss Frank Lampard was delighted with the result. The joy was clearly visible on his face, though he is a former Chelsea man himself.
Though they are still in the relegation zone, they still have a game in hand over their other rivals. With that being said, this was a really crucial result for their ambitions to remain in the top flight of English football.
Chelsea Couldn’t Find A Way Back Into The Game And Were Poor On The Night
For some reason, the Merseyside Blues have performed really well against the bigger clubs. They have failed to make an impact against some of the smaller teams. Yet, once again they collected some crucial points with a hard-fought 1-0 win.
They are far from safe still and there is a long way to go. However, this would be a huge morale booster for Frank Lampard and his men. A single goal in the 46th minute by Richarlison was enough to give them a narrow win over the west London side.
Here is how Twitter reacted to this shocking win for Everton at home over a strong rival team-
Big win from Everton. Takes them from 18th to 18th!Advertisement

Every game is huge, but the importance of winning gets greater with every passing week. We need a big performance today with Spurs already winning and a win here drags Chelsea back into the top 4 mix too after their defeat to Everton.Advertisement
Massive, massive game. 👊🔴⚪#AFC

I would have loved a Leicester win today over an Everton win, but Leicester were generous.
