Chelsea managed to extend their lead at the top of the table following a last-gasp winner from John Terry. For much periods of the match, it looked like Chelsea were going to end with just one point from this home match, as Everton played extremely well. Chelsea were on the back foot for much of the first half, but the blues found their feet in the second half after Jose Mourinho brought on Ramires for Oscar.
However, the goal proved much more elusive done a good performance, as Chelsea had to wait until injury time for it. John Terry managed to poke it home – albeit with some help from Tim Howard – from a Frank Lampard corner to send the home fans into ecstasy. The win means a lot with Arsenal and Manchester City set to play their games later today.
