A stunning strike from Pedro and late goals from Gary Cahill and Willian gave Chelsea a 3-0 win at Everton and strengthened their grip on the title.
Everton should have gone ahead as early as the second minute, Dominic Calvert-Lewin clattering a shot against the inside of the post as Lukaku lost his footing with the goal gaping.
After Eden Hazard and Diego Costa squandered marvellous chances to put the visitors ahead before the break, it looked like it may not be Chelsea's day. But Pedro turned the game in his side's favour when he swivelled on the edge of the area and sent an unstoppable shot into the top corner with his left foot.
Cahill added the second when Hazard's free-kick was saved by Maarten Stekelenburg before substitute Willian fired into the empty net after being teed up by Willian.
The result moves Chelsea temporarily seven points clear before Tottenham Hotspur face Arsenal in the North London derby. Victory also ensured Chelsea are guaranteed of the Champions League group stage next season.
There can be only one. Pedro’s wonderful strike may well have settled the title in Chelsea’s favour when they looked to be running out of ideas.
