Goodison Park | 30 Dec 2012
Chelsea captain for this game, Frank Lampard staged the classic comeback for Chelsea after Everton had scored the first goal inside the first couple of minutes. A killer pass from Ramires saw a super header from Lampard to make it 1-1. And then he scored again in the second half to make it 1-2 and that’s what the scoreline remained at the end of the match.
Everton, would consider themselves extremely unlucky though as they hit the woodwork thrice. David Moyes can take lot of heart out of this Everton performance and that too, without Fellaini. But boy, is Rafa Benitez on a roll at Chelsea or what?
P.S. – Chelsea can probably not afford to get rid of Lampard, now.
