Chelsea vs Everton 1-0 | EPL 22.02.2014
John Terry nudged the ball over the line in stoppage time to give leaders Chelsea a 1-0 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho’s side moved four points clear of second-placed Arsenal before their London rivals hosted Sunderland later in the afternoon, but they left it late to seal the three points against a highly skilled visiting team.
A surging run by home substitute Ramires saw Phil Jagielka booked before Terry landed on the end of a Frank Lampard free-kick to beat Tim Howard two minutes into five added on by referee Lee Probert.
Everton did not deserve to lose having dominated large swathes of the match with Slyvain Distin and Gareth Barry producing towering performances for Roberto Martinez’s side.
But Distin lost Terry at the goal as the home side somehow escaped from the afternoon with three points there barely merited having spent the afternoon firing efforts from long range at the visiting goal.
