The second half featured six goals, including five in a period of just 11 minutes, with the Blues eventually coming out on top. It finished 6-3, and on the balance of play, the match was closer than the score.
Early on, it appeared that Everton were in for a beating. Chelsea scored just 30 seconds into the game, then doubled their lead before the 3rd minute was gone. Both goals were a bit controversial, and in the end, the linesman probably got the first one right and the second wrong.
Diego Costa scored the opener, netting his third goal in as many games off a brilliant assist by Cesc Fabregas. Both the pass and Costa's run were timed brilliantly, with the Spanish striker just barely beating Everton's offside trap before finishing past Tim Howard.
