Everton 0-1 Chelsea FC LIVE! Jorginho seals win - Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Everton vs Chelsea LIVE!

A first-half penalty from Italy midfielder Jorginho was enough to earn Chelsea a 1-0 win at Everton on Saturday to get their new Premier League campaign off to a positive start.

Chelsea peppered the home goal with 13 corners in the first half but looked set to be frustrated as the interval approached, only for Jorginho to convert from the spot after Ben Chilwell has been fouled to give the visitors the lead.

A brilliant save from Edouard Mendy early in the second half to deny Abdoulaye Doucoure preserved Chelsea’s advantage, and that was as good as it got for a disappointing Everton, who only survived relegation by the skin of their teeth last term.

England forward Raheem Sterling could have marked an impressive debut with a late second but saw his close-range effort deflected just wide.

It mattered little as Chelsea, following a close season of upheaval after the sale of the club to an investment group led by LA Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly, saw out the three points with ease.

What we learned

20:43 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jorginho proved the match winner as Chelsea opened with a win under in the new Boehly-Clearlake era but it was the new signings that really shone away at Everton.

The Italy international scored a penalty with almost the final kick of the first half after Ben Chilwell was rightly judged to have been brought down by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

But the Blues found themselves very much reliant on their new signings right away with Kalidou Koulibaly’s surging run and pass to Chilwell creating panic in the Evertonian backline.

Chelsea player ratings

20:00 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea secured a 1-0 win away win at Everton to kick start the new Boehly-Clearlake era but were far from comfortable against Frank Lampard’s side.

Jorginho won the match right at the end of first half stoppage time after Ben Chilwell was adjudged to have been fouled in the box by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Raheem Sterling was bright on his debut and Kalidou Koulibaly reasonably solid, with Marc Cucurella coming off the bench for the last 30 minutes, just a day after joining Chelsea.

Full match report

Chelsea got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start away at Everton, albeit in fairly unconvincing fashion.

The feeling at the club last season was that the injuries to Ben Chilwell and Reece James towards the end of the year was one of the major reasons Tuchel saw his title challenge collapse. At their worst in the period after that, Chelsea all too often looked one-paced, much as they did for large parts of the first-half on Merseyside.

FT: Everton 0-1 Chelsea

19:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

10 minutes added on!

19:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea have been seeing the game out calmly but a 1-0 lead at Goodison Park with so long left is not exactly ideal.

Cucurella on for his debut

19:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

74:00 - Cucurella and Broja on for Koulibaly and Havertz.


19:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

72:00 - Dele Alli, who certainly knows how to score against Chelsea, fluffs his lines on a first touch in the box.

Chelsea are not in much of a rush

19:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

66:00 - Seeing the game out perhaps but Chelsea aren’t the most energetic team in the world...

Double Chelsea change

19:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Everton change

19:00 , Jonathan Gorrie

A man with a track-record against Chelsea...

Reece James booked for time-wasting

18:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

56:00 - Given the pretty early stage of the game, that probably tells you all you need to know about how the second-half is going...


18:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

51:00 - VERY last-ditch from Chelsea!

A corner isn’t cleared and Doucoure gets a shot off after a scramble in the box, with Mendy saving well. Everton have started the second-half as the better team!


18:45 , Jonathan Gorrie

47:00 - Gray gets in behind and beats Silva for pace, though the Brazilian does well to slow him up and get a block in.

Chelsea were easily cut apart there.

Back underway!

18:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

No changes at the break.

Bad news for Godfrey

18:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

A busy, although slightly frustrating first day at the job

18:34 , Jonathan Gorrie


18:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

HT: Everton 0-1 Chelsea

18:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea hardly at their best but Jorginho’s penalty is enough to have them ahead at the break.

GOAL! Everton 0-1 Chelsea | Jorginho ‘53

18:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

53:00 - Pickford sent the wrong way!

Cool and calm penalty puts Chelsea ahead.


18:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

52:00 - Chilwell brough down by Doucoure.

Corner after corner after corner wasted

18:20 , Jonathan Gorrie

48:00 - For a side with so much quality, Chelsea have not taken a good corner all game despite so many attempts.

At times, Chelsea can be brilliant

18:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

47:00 - The most frustrating thing for Tuchel will be that his side CAN play quickly.

The last ten minutes have seen them play a few fast interchanges, causing Everton problems but it’s just not often enough.

Eight minutes added on

18:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

45:00 - Plenty of stoppage time after Godfrey’s early injury.

Koulibaly a bright spot

18:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

44:00 - The man looks tailor-made for the Premier League, this time judging a tackle to perfection to deny Gordon a shot in the box.


18:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

42:00 - Sterling has the ball in the back of the net but it’s ruled out for offside.

Thiago Silva to the rescue!

18:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

40:00 - Oh how the Brazilian’s experience counted there.

Gray is through on goal with Gordon to his side, though Silva bides his time and cuts out what looked like a killer pass.

Everton almost in again!

18:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

38:00 - Gordon causing real problems, cutting to the byline for Doucoure, although Kante clears.

He’s the kind of player Chelsea are missing (at least today), someone who go through the gears.

Koulibaly lucky

18:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

34:00 - Anthony Gordon looks to break and Koulibaly pulls his shirt, dragging him down before he can get away.

Should really have been a booking.

Chelsea need more

18:03 , Jonathan Gorrie

31:00 - Hard to see any difference in the kind of tempo Chelsea are playing with between the start of this season and the end to last. They’re not awful by any means, but it’s all a bit one-paced.

Goodison roars

18:00 , Jonathan Gorrie

27:00 - More sloppiness from Chelsea and Everton are getting in their faces, lifting the crowd.

Tuchel, a man who revels in control, will not like this one bit.

Nizaar Kinsella at Goodison Park

17:57 , Jonathan Gorrie

England manager Gareth Southgate is among the guests in attendance at Goodison Park this evening.

One of his main points of interest will be to see how Raheem Sterling does as a talisman at Chelsea after moving for £47.5million from Manchester City.

He has got one shot away and set up a Mason Mount effort so far but hasn’t really taken the game by the scruff of the neck.

Ben Chilwell will also want to impress on his first start since his anterior cruciate ligament injury last November.


17:55 , Jonathan Gorrie

23:00 - Tarkowski’s bullet header is tipped over the bar brilliantly by Mendy!

Sterling watch

17:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

21:00 - Sterling might not be a new player into the Premier League, but he’s being doubled up on left, right and centre as if he was an unknown quantity.

Difficult for him to get into the game so far.


17:52 , Jonathan Gorrie

20:00 - Brilliant defending from Koulibaly, who gets his head on a tempting Gray cross.

First big involvement from the summer signing.

Thomas Tuchel is NOT happy

17:51 , Jonathan Gorrie

19:00 - The Chelsea boss is making his feelings about such wasted chances to his coaching staf VERY clear.


17:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

18:00 - Chelsea play the third corner short, freeing Mount on the edge of the box but Pickford smothers.

Sterling can’t quite get to the rebound and Holgate clears another corner. James then wastes it.

And defend it they do!

17:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

17:00 - Holgate with a big header.

A third corner coming up...

Back in action

17:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

17:00 - Now just the small matter fo a corner to defend for Everton.

Long delay

17:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

14:00 - Such a shame for Godfrey and there’s been a long stoppage in play.

Atmosphere is flat, as you’d imagine.

Stretcher coming on

17:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

12:00 - Awful to see Godfrey react in so much pain, with Mason Holgate his replacement.

Pickford had called for a stretcher early, giving you an indication on just how bad it was.


17:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

09:00 - Awful back pass from Godfrey forces Pickford to rush to prevent a corner, allowing Havertz in before Godfrey covers and hurts himself.

Prior to that, the home side looked fairly comfortable.


17:38 , Jonathan Gorrie

06:00 - Decent ball in from a Chilwell free-kick after Sterling had been brought down.

Havertz gets his head on it in a crowded box, but Pickford deals with it easily.

More sloppy touches

17:37 , Jonathan Gorrie

04:00 - Kante and James wasting the ball early on, with the latter gifting Gordon a run from deep before he’s blocked off.

So much experience

17:35 , Jonathan Gorrie

02:00 - With Koulibaly and Sterling in the side, Chelsea boast so much experience through their spine.

Whether that will be enough to truly catch Liverpool and Manchester City, however, remain to be seen.

A sloppy pass from Kante as Chelsea look to build for the first time in this game won’t have helped.

Chelsea happy to sit back

17:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

01:00 - Chelsea happy to contain early on, with Everton the ones in control of the ball.

A VERY high line played as the home side lined up a free-kick, which James cleared with ease.


17:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

Away we go at Goodison!

The teams are in the tunnel!

17:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

Z-Cars blarring out at Goodision Park as Chelsea gear up for their first game under new ownership.

Duncan Ferguson is tipping Everton for a 2-0 win here. It’d take a brave observer to argue with him...

Warming up

Goals have been a problem for Chelsea of late, meaning more of this from Mason Mount will be most welcome.

Tuchel admits it was ‘horrible’ to play against Raheem Sterling

Chelsea signing Kalidou Koulibaly reveals John Terry phone call over No26 shirt: ‘He thought it was a joke!’

17:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly has revealed how John Terry initially hung up the phone when he asked to take his legendary No26 shirt.

The former captain was caught by surprise with a call from the Blues’s new £34million signing and had to contact manager Thomas Tuchel to verify that it was really him.

Speaking at his unveiling press conference at Chelsea’s Cobham Training Centre on Wednesday, Koulibaly revealed the details of the exchange and how fellow legend Gianfranco Zola even got involved.

“The team manager told me some numbers but he didn’t tell me 26,” Koulibaly told reporters. “I asked him for 26 and he told me that John left in 2017 and no one took it all this time.

The ones left out of the matchday squad are Timo Werner, Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi among a hat-full of aspirational loanees with dreams of making it at Chelsea.

For those three in particular, it will send a message about Thomas Tuchel’s opinion of their talents compared to the rest of the squad - after £165million and five new signings arrived in the summer.

Indeed, reports in Spain had already suggested that Alonso had been asked to be left out of Chelsea’s squad with a possible move to Barcelona on the horizon.

Werner is thought to have fallen out with Tuchel in and around the recent friendly with Udinese which he missed due to ‘medical reasons’.

Chelsea need to sell some players and could these three be amongst the ones to depart?

A statement of transfer business?

16:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

Thomas Tuchel has left Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso out of his squad.

Having questioned the commitment of some of his players during the club’s pre-season tour of America, it seems the Chelsea boss is ready to rid his squad of players linked with moves away...

Chelsea: Nobody wants to touch ‘cursed’ No9 shirt, jokes Thomas Tuchel

16:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

Thomas Tuchel has insisted Chelsea did not deliberately leave the No9 shirt free with a future new signing in mind.

Chelsea’s No9 remains vacant after Romelu Lukaku‘s return to Inter Milan on loan, and Tuchel said none of the Blues’ current stars wanted to take the shirt.

The Stamford Bridge club will continue to look at adding a striker to their ranks this summer, with Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang understood to remain in consideration.

The last six Chelsea stars to wear the nine shirt have struggled for a lasting impact in west London, leaving Tuchel to joke that the Blues’ central striking number still harbours bad luck.

Thomas Tuchel has 33 players in his squad so he will send a huge message to his players today with his line up and choices on the bench.

The Blues are carrying too many players after signing five senior players in the transfer window and letting just Romelu Lukaku go on loan to Internazionale, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen also leaving on free transfers.

With returning loanees also boosting the group, there will be players dreaming of making it in west London still and others looking for excuses to push for an exit.

This team selection will give valuable information to not just supporters but agents and the players involved about Tuchel’s real opinions.

High hopes Raheem Sterling can give Chelsea a jump-start amid new era’s whirlwind summer

16:08 , Jonathan Gorrie

The new era at Chelsea officially gets underway at Everton on Saturday.

This will be the club’s first game since the Todd Boehly-Clearlake takeover but expectations remain as high as they were under Roman Abramovich.

Just as high is the off-field intrigue, spending and drama.

It has been a whirlwind summer as the new owners got up to speed, while a rocky pre-season was far from ideal preparation for manager Thomas Tuchel.
