Richarlison scored a decisive second-half goal as Everton beat Chelsea to move within two points of the Premier League safety zone.
The Brazilian got his chance when César Azpilicueta dallied with the ball, allowing him to steal and finish calmly.
Chelsea’s Mason Mount hit both posts with a shot from 20 yards before Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford brilliantly saved Azpilicueta’s follow-up shot.
The win puts the Toffees within two points of Burnley in 16th and Leeds in 17th, with a game in hand for both.
