Spanish army on-fire as Blues beat Everton (2-0)

A fine Chelsea performance was capped off by first-half goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata as we made it back-to-wins on a glorious afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

The goals were made and scored in Spain. Morata assisted Fabregas’s delicate volleyed opener and then, five minutes before the break, Cesar Azpilicueta’s teasing delivery was headed in by the Spanish striker. Pedro was back to the starting XI and made a good performance up front.

In doing so, Morata became the first player in Premier League history to both score and assist a goal in each of his first two home games.

In the searing heat Blues’ intensity dropped a little after the break, but host remained the better team and were full value for the two-goal victory. It was an excellent way to pick up the first home league victory of the campaign against a side that drew at Manchester City as recently as Monday.

Next outing is away to Leicester in a fortnight’s time after a pause in club football as internationals take centre stage.
