EFL Cup!! Willian, Ruediger Score As Antonio Conte’s Chelsea Beat Everton 2-1
Chelsea progressed to the EFL Cup quarter-finals as Antonio Rudiger’s header and a Willian screamer sealed a 2-1 win over Everton.
Antonio Rudiger’s header and Willian’s stunning stoppage-time strike secured Chelsea a place in the EFL Cup quarter-finals as David Unsworth’s first game in temporary charge of Everton ended in a 2-1 defeat.
Ronald Koeman’s 16-month stint in charge of Everton was brought to a halt on Monday, following a humiliating 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal that left them 18th in Premier League.
However, a rejuvenated second-half display showed Everton’s quality – with a moment of magic from Willian in the 92nd minute ensuring that Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s effort soon after was a mere consolation.
